So, last weekend I went back to Margriet van Eijk. I did the workshop antique effects. I learned lots of fun stuff and Margriet tried to give us as much information and examples to go home with. These couple of hours were overwhelming. I discovered, tried and saw all kinds of products/materials usable to age your walls, furniture, wooden floors and framework.
I went home with a spinning head :-) and tons of ideas for in my home. Now I have to find the time to realize them.
I really liked both workshops, so now I'm thinking of another one......Margriet is very high on energy and passionate about her work and that makes me want to come back.
