jabos-headerI am so excited to announce that Home with a Twist is partnering with Jabo’s Ace Hardware for a special hands-on Amy Howard at Home workshop on Saturday, October 1 from 10 a.m. – noon at the Fort Worth Jabo’s Ace Hardware.

bird-seed-pail-3Amy Howard is an exclusive line of eco-friendly paint products that help you to rescue, restore and redecorate most anything in your home.

This fun “make and take” class will teach us how to transform a simple galvanized pail into a one-of-a-kind container for pet food or bird seed.

Galvanized metal is so popular right now in home decor, this on-trend workshop will feature chicken-feed-pail-2Amy Howard at Home Parisian Zinc Solution to give the pails a weathered, antiqued look. But, we will add a modern twist by adding additional products like Amy Howard at Home One Step Paint, High Performance Lacquer and Clear Wax.  Your friends (even the furry ones) will be envious of your creation when you bring it home!

The class is only $35 and includes all the supplies needed during class, your own customized project to take home and yummy snacks.  Space is limited so be sure to register quickly to reserve your spot in class. If you want to know more what to expect, click here to watch a video on how the magic happens using the Parisian Zinc Solution.  I hope to apply the technique we learn in class to create a galvanized top to a piece of furniture!

dog-foodStay tuned.  There is a container for cat food…but the cats were busy and not interested in being in the photos.

I am so excited to be working with Jabo’s Ace and I hope you and your friends will join me for a morning full of fun, inspiration and learning something new!
