Spice Up Moms Night Out with Board & Brush

:: Disclaimer :: We enjoyed Board & Brush Corpus Christi in exchange for our honest review. The feedback and experiences shared are ours!

You know the drill. You need adult time. You want an evening with friends. But you’re not sure what to do. And between coordinating schedules and details, plans fall through. Or you do something predictable like dinner and drinks. Again. Yawn.

Until now!

Board and Brush- Welcome Corpus Christi Moms Blog

Our Corpus Christi Moms Blog team recently got together to try Board & Brush. We’d been all work and no play for a while, so couldn’t wait to get together!

I’ll admit, I was nervous. I’ve never worked with wood. I’ve never held a drill. Staining? {Oh, please, not on my clothes! They’ve survived my toddler this long!} But our evening was fun! It was memorable! And we all left with a really special and fully custom decorative board for our home.

Pick your project

When we registered before our event, each of our team members got to pick their own project. That was probably the hardest part of all of this. Board and Brush has tons of amazing projects to choose from.

We all picked something that was special to us. Erin and I picked a countdown to Christmas craft. Stephanie picked something that reminded her of a friend. Stacey, still a little homesick perhaps, picked something that made Corpus Christi feel more like home.

Then we got going!

Follow the leader

Jasmine was our tour guide. She assured us we could do this! {I wasn’t sure I could!} She promised we would leave with a project we loved! {I wasn’t sure I believed her!} But we had come this far, so I faked the confidence I didn’t have and got started!

First, we distressed our boards with hammers, nails, and mallets.

Then we sanded. {Sanding is no joke. I almost needed relief, but convinced myself it was a workout and pulled through.}

Next, we stained. Picking the color was hard, but as we kept working, it felt amazing to be doing something that was so unfamiliar and intimidating only moments earlier.

Jasmine, Carey, and Jacqulyne helped us put our boards together.

Have fun!

Between tasks and throughout the evening we chatted away and enjoyed each other’s company. We even got to enjoy pizza and beverages! {And since there weren’t little fingers around, we didn’t have to share!}

Then it was time to work with our printed stencils, which worked like stickers. We peeled them, stuck them, and then painted our boards, again, using whatever colors or customization we had chosen.

Throughout the evening, Jasmine, Carey and Jacqulyne helped us along. They encouraged us and answered our questions. They stepped in if we {I} needed a little extra assistance. They even suggested fun project customization ideas {like glitter!} and kept detailed eyes on our projects to make sure we would love what we took home.

So, it turns out Jasmine was right. We could do this! And we left with beautiful keepsakes we loved! {My family loves mine too!}

I’m not quite ready for my own HGTV show yet, but thanks to Board and Brush, I’m a little bit closer… well, closer to planning my next visit!
