 Our in-house “Master of Repurposing“, DeWayne Konz, has been busy as a bee this season crafting giant whimsical dragonflies.  If you were to dissect one of these creatures (with your eyes of course), you would see that they are made of repurposed ceiling fan blades and a bedpost.  These dragonflies are one of a kind pieces that add a magical touch of whimsy wherever they land.

June Aloha!

June was a FUN filled month at bathandmore.  The American flag Chalk Paint® classes were very popular. The Konz family enjoyed a wonderful Hawaiian vacation during the middle of the month.  And we held a fabulous Ladies Night towards the end of June.


DeWayne, Denise, and Dena (aka D³) wasted no time getting back to work after their island adventure.  During Ladies night, Bathandmore welcomed Renee’s Boutique, The Makeup & Skin Care Studio, Splendid Sparrow Designs, One of a Kind Designs, and Lovely Girl Mobile Boutique.  It was a night of food, fun, fashion and friends! 


We had some photo booth fun during this event.  Check out our adorable custom Chalk Paint® instagram sign.  This is for rent for weddings and special events.  Use our Chalk Ink pens to create your personalized event hashtag!


Dena hand painted an incredible Instagram photo frame with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® for the photo booth.  As you can see it was put to good use!


Not wanting to be left out during Ladies Night, DeWayne was very stealth with his secret photo bomber moves.

1962655_10153047607108269_3742638535723874060_n    During the evening, Denise gave Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® demonstrations to the crowd.  She used Emperor’s Silk, Arles, Dark Wax and Clear Wax to demonstrate a variety of Chalk Paint® techniques.  It’s important to remember that  Denise and DeWayne are both highly trained by Annie Sloan’s staff.  Education is the key to successful home projects. Make the most of your time and money by taking a Chalk Paint® class at Bathandmore.


There were plenty of “oooohs & ahhhhhs” from the crowd as Denise showed them how EASY it is to create a beautiful vintage look when Annie Sloan products are used correctly.


Speaking of Chalk Paint® classes, check out these stunning American flags built by DeWayne Konz and painted by our class participants.


Emperor’s Silk, Primer Red, Burgundy, Old White, Pure white, Aubusson Blue, Greek Blue, and Napoleonic Blue were all very popular colors during the month of June.
