SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS

At Board & Brush in Cape Girardeau, we marry the joy of wine and paint with the classic timelessness of wooden signs. Our instructor-led DIY wood sign workshops allow you to combine your creativity and willingness to learn new skills.

HOW IT WORKS

1. REGISTER FOR A WORKSHOP

View our calendar above to find a date and time that works best for you and your friends and family (the more, the merrier!). You can also look for a workshop that features the type of project you’d like to create, like a PYP or specialty project. Then, you’ll browse our gallery of hundreds of designs to choose which one you’d like to create in your upcoming workshop!

2. ARRIVE EARLY!

Our workshops start on time, so you’ll want to arrive early to get settled! You can start thinking about the endless creative possibilities ahead, take photos with friends, and enjoy your favorite beverage (some studios are BYOB, while others sell alcohol, please check with your local studio about their policies).

3. GET YOUR DIY ON!

At your wood sign workshop, you’ll turn raw wood into a finished project fit for your home! You’ll be guided by our expert instructors throughout each step in the workshop - sanding, distressing, staining, painting your stencil, and waxing! You choose all your colors in person at the workshop! Our workshops are typically about 3 hours long.

4. DISPLAY YOUR NEW DÉCOR

When you leave our workshops, you’ll leave with a wood project that you’ll be proud to display in your home! We mean it when we say that no experience is necessary - our instructors are there to help turn you into a DIY expert. Now that your beautiful farmhouse-inspired project is complete, you’ll take it home to find the perfect spot to display it!

Meet Board & Brush Cape Girardeau Owner

Brittney Swicionis

Brittney has always been a hands-on learner and has a passion for creating. Her earliest memories are of her making wood projects in her father's garage growing up, learning the ins and outs of different tools. She loves observing the start to finish of projects, home remodels, and anything that involves a process which makes her a D-I-Y guru. Brittney is originally from the southside of Chicago but found herself attending school at Southeast Missouri State University. In 2017, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science with a double minor in Dance and Sport Management. From there, she continued her schooling and obtained her Masters in Higher Education: Sport Management while as a Graduate Assistant for Fitness & Wellness. She currently works full time for a non-profit in the region, is an adjunct instructor at her alma mater, teaches group fitness, and is a personal trainer.

When Brittney attended a Board & Brush event years ago she was hooked! She enjoyed the process, the environment, and the overall experience. Little did she know that first interaction as a participant would lead her to becoming an instructor for Board & Brush, and now the new owner of Board & Brush Cape Girardeau! Brittney has a significant other Tony, and they have been together for 6 years. He is her biggest fan and cheerleader. You can see him in a workshop from time to time creating a new project for the couples home.

In Brittney's spare time, she loves traveling back home to see her parents and family members, attending local sporting events (Go Redhawks), visiting local farmers markets with her sister, volunteering with various organizations in the Southeast Missouri region, or just watching The Office.
