Stylish Patina

DO NOT TAKE THE CLASSES! Big rip-off and huge disappointment.

DO NOT TAKE THE CLASSES! Big rip-off and huge disappointment.

I never write reviews and this is the first time — However, I feel so strongly about what a waste of time and money the class was that I need to speak up here.

I absolutely do NOT recommend the classes offered by Stylish Patina. The amount of money you would spend on the class (around $115) would be much better spent on buying some of the products used during the class, such as Annie’s Sloan’s chalk paint.

The Advanced Techniques Chalk Paint class:
Yikes– nasty old wood boards for us to work with, nasty old, caked paint brushes. Only one board and paint brush per person and we were using several different materials from chalk paint, pearl of plaster, to gold leaf. We didn’t even have a cup of water to rinse our brushes in. Arg! To add a tinge of awkwardness for the students, we all had to share the materials, including the stencils. I would think for the price paid, we would have had at least our own, clean and ready-to-go materials to work with.

Teacher: The instructor was not very knowledgeable about the materials, so we spent most of the time on our own making bigger messes. We would have been better off buying the materials and experimenting with them at home w/ some guidance from You Tube.

Timing: The class was supposed to be two full hours, but ended abruptly after an hour and a half.

Location: The class confirmation did not come w/ the address of the class location, which is different than the shop. The Web site was “temporarily unavailable” the day of the class, so it was hard to figure out where to go. I had to go to the shop first, and the very rude sales clerk vaguely described where to go for the class. Once there, there was NO sign on the door indicating we were in the right place. (However, I do take some blame here for not researching the location well in advance of the class.)

All in all, a waste of time and money. Don’t do it!!! Your money would be much better spent on several pints of the paint and wax.

  1. this place is not it.

    I had been following Stylish Patina on Instagram for sometime and I liked what I saw posted, however, when I went into the store for the first time last week, I was highly disappointed at the customer service (or lack there of). I came in on a weekday, in the afternoon,

    so I didn’t think it would be too crowded–there was only one other customer, yet both my sister and I felt completely ignored by the person behind the register. We said ‘hello’ first. There seems to be more personality on their social media presence than there is in person.

    I had several celebrations coming up and was ready to explore and spend, but because we received no willingness for assistance, we just had to leave–if you’re looking for a lovely shopping experience, this place is not it.

  2. Great little shop with some really great pieces.

    Great little shop with some really great pieces. Recommended by a friend when looking for an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint stockist. Complete selection of Annie Sloan materials available to refinish just about everything. Furniture pieces and accessories all appeared to reasonably priced.

    I walked out with the Annie Sloan paint I went in for and a vintage framed print. Will definitely visit from time to time to see what they have gotten in.

  3. Will definitely be back for more paint and hostess gifts!

    Visited this store for the first time yesterday. I had called to see if they had certain colors in chalk paint and they were very helpful on the phone. Stopped by later to pick it up and the shop staff were quite helpful. I’ve never used chalk paint before so the staff person gave me a few tips.

    I love that they have sample sizes of paint. Loved the curated selection of gifts, stationary and household items. Will definitely be back for more paint and hostess gifts!
