Stain, sand and swirl your way to an elegant new piece of home decor at Board and Brush, Marietta’s booziest DIY studio. Specializing in DIY wood signs and other DIY projects, Board and Brush is a great way to flex your creative muscles. With rustic farmhouse decor making a resurgence in interior design, the eclectic wooden signs that are a staple at every Board and Brush location are both trendy and timeless.
Craft enthusiast Julie Selby started hosting DIY home decor through classes in her basement before opening her first location in Hartland, Wisconsin, in 2015. Now, with over 260 locations nationwide, East Cobb local Lillian Puleo owns and operates the Marietta branch. As a former Realtor and HOA Property Manager, Lillian is skilled in home decor and staging, so her love of Board and Brush is a true testament to its efficacy.
“It’s easy to buy something mass-produced,” explains Lillian. “It’s fun to handmake your own decor and a great way to ensure it matches your style and home decor.”
Set against the picturesque Chattahoochee River, these paint-and-sip-esque classes offer a romantic or rejuvenating setting for your next date night, girls' night or family gathering. After arriving at the studio (with booze in hand), the Board and Brush team will lead you to a seat where a pile of tools and supplies await. Instructors will then walk you through sanding, assembling, staining and painting a board to match your home and exude your personality.
“I love driving through neighborhoods and recognizing porch signs from my studio, proudly displayed on front doors,” says Lillian.
While Board and Brush’s most popular workshop, the Pick Your Project Workshop, are their signature wooden signs, the creative studio offers a host of other workshop types. Plus, with fall and Christmas right around the corner, the studio has plans to host a series of festivities like parent/child workshops and make and takes.
So, lean into your interior design expertise and become your own craftsman by booking a workshop (or two) at Board and Brush Marietta this fall. Your home will thank you!
