Over the weekend my girlfriends and I had a fun creative girl’s night at Board & Brush – Glendale, a painting wood sign studio – which you can also bring your own wine. It was fun because each gal could pick her own creative board project and we could work on them together!

Board & Brush is a great girls night out idea, an alternative to group painting classes where everyone has to paint the same thing, or painting ceramics. Board & Brush is a customized project class, so what you’re working on is unique to you and you’ll actually use it!

I decided to create the world map (see all options here). When you arrive all your boards are already cut, they make it so easy! During the class is when you can customize your board with different wood finishes and paint colors. And all you need to do is distress it, sand, stain, screw, and paint!

I was recently looking through my car’s phone book that I hadn’t touched in probably seven years and I was curious to see who I had in my speed dial – it was all these girls. The girls who have been on my speed dial remain the most important in my life (there are minus a few who couldn’t make it). But isn’t that such a great celebration to see your closest friends really do stand the test of time? I’m obsessed with my friends, just like Taylor Swift is with hers. If you want to follow more blogs, here are a few of my girlfriends – Brenna and Meagan. All these girls have taken my photo before for my blog posts, haha! So supportive!

Back to the fun of distressing and staining our boards –

Look at all the projects you can do, they cover the wall for inspiration. They have an open coffee/hot cocoa and soda bar for you if you get a little thirsty.

Each table (which seats up to 6 comfortably) has an instructor to help walk your table at their own pace through each project.

^^ Painting over the stencil, and rubbing wax all over it to give it a more worn in look.

Ta-da!
