1389 N. Main St, Walnut Creek
The DIY wood sign workshop company Board & Brush is coming to downtown Walnut Creek where Rainbow’s End Thrift Store used to be through the passageway next to the Mediterranean restaurant Pomegranate. According to their calendar the first workshop (Family Inspired) will be held on October 25th. Check out the details here and watch for updates on their Facebook page here. Considering how prevalent paint & sip studios are around here it’s cool to see a twist using wood. Not sure if they will allow alcohol here. Stay tuned…

At Board & Brush Creative Studio, our goal is to turn you into a “DIY master” by encouraging you to understand and appreciate the beauty of raw materials—the wood, the knots, the color variations and the simple imperfections that will make your project unique. Distressing, sanding with the grain, and staining are a few of the important steps we will guide you through to make your personalized wood sign look as though it has been with you for years—like a vintage heirloom.
Our mission: Hone your own passion for décor & DIY projects; we hand you the tools & direction, you create the friendships and craft.
EXPERIENCE NOT NEEDED! BRING YOUR CREATIVITY & PERSONALITY, WE’LL BRING THE WOOD, WINE & PAINT!
Never used a hammer, sand paper, or a power tool? Never added picture hangers to a home décor sign to hang on your wall? Never waxed wood to protect it from the elements and make it glisten in the light? Don’t worry! We will teach you all of these skills. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if we find you in the hardware store filling up your own toolbox after your DIY workshop session is over!
We work with top graphic designers from all over the country to provide you with the most up-to-date, inspiring designs that will adorn your walls for years to come. In addition, our custom stencil process allows you to personalize your piece with your surname, monogram, the year of your special event or the names of your beloved children … the possibilities are endless and design choices are expansive.
