SAGINAW TOWNSHIP (WJRT) - (02/07/19) - This is a craft-lovers dream! Board & Brush Creative Studio is a national chain with locations throughout the midwest and on the east coast. The one in Saginaw Township is set to open next week. It's one of just three in Michigan.
"We show you from start to finish how to distress, sand, paint, stain and finish your board so you also go home with a very cool looking farmhouse piece to hang on your wall," Kelly said.
Husband and wife team Kelly and David Eddy are hoping to bring you an unforgettable experience, whether you're celebrating a kid's party, having a date night or a church outing.
"I think it's very empowering to both men and women. You get to use tools. You get to use a power drill. You actually create the whole piece from start to finish," Kelly said.
Kelly, who was an occupational therapist, gave up her day job to fulfill her crafting passion. With David by her side the two are ready to have a grand opening February 16th.
"I think Saginaw definitely needed something like this. There is nothing like this in the area. I think it's great for getting people together," Kelly said. "A good way to get creative without thinking of the idea yourself. So we use stencils. You pick your design before you come in. Many can be personalized with your name or your anniversary date."
With help from family and the franchise they designed the studio and built the shelves and work tables.
A three hour workshop costs $65 per person. Board and Brush is located in Block's Plaza on North Center Road and Gratiot.
