About Board and Paint

Board and Paint is a DIY studio in downtown Putnam, CT. We offer many opportunities for our guests to come and be creative without having to have the tools at home. We prep all materials, offer step by step instructions and lead our participants throughout the projects. All projects are ready to be taken home at the end of each class.

The Board and Paint Story…

The first sign I ever purchased said “Every Day Counts”. I hung it above the garage door to remind my boys to find treasures in every single day. I started to notice the difference that message was making in my own life. That simple reminder often helped me change my attitude and have more positive days. I began seeking out home decor with positive messages to sprinkle around my home, so that no matter where I looked there was a favorite Bible verse, or an encouraging word, or a reminder of a great memory.

When I started to learn to how to repurpose items with paint and create my own home decor I thought it was a great idea to make my own signs with messages that were personal to me and my family. Soon after I approached Greg with an idea to teach others how to do the same. And the rest, as they say, is history…

Board and Paint, to me, is more than just a DIY studio. We strive to provide people with a creative outlet by teaching them how to create trendy, beautiful home decor. However, the bigger part of our business is the hope that what each person creates at our studio will uplift them, encourage them, strengthen them and make them smile.
