AR Workshop Review

I had to opportunity to visit AR Workshop with some friends from the Des Moines Moms Blog and I loved my experience! Thank you to AR Workshop for fully hosting this event.

When you first walk in you will see their retail section. They sell different signs and home decor pieces. All their items are gorgeous!

They offer different classes, camps and public/private events throughout the week which is on display.

I love all the details of the shop! From the Paint Bar to aprons hanging on hammers and  the drink bar they had all set up!

There were enough tables and table space to accommodate our large group. We all had plenty of space to work and didn’t feel like we were crowded.

The staff took us step by step from picking out our projects, to choosing the right stain

and/or paint and helping us assemble our projects.

No matter what your skill level is at crafting, painting, staining or even using power tools- anyone can do this! It’s so easy and the staff makes it so fun!

For my project I chose to make a lazy susan. I used power tools to attach the hardware to make this bad boy spin!

After choosing my stain and paint colors I got to work sanding and staining my board. I weeded out my vinyl stencil, transferred, painted and attached the hardware. It came out so cute!

Laura and her staff at AR Workshop were helpful and helped us along every single step of the way. There were some ladies who have never done anything like this before and they all got the hang of it and their projects turned out so beautiful.

 

AR Workshop has classes, summer camps for kids and private parties all week. I recommend getting some girlfriends together to drink wine, create and laugh! Tell them Nicole sent you! 🙂
