Frequently Asked Questions

What is Paint Stuff Studio?

We are a paint studio located in the Hickory/Edinburgh area of Chesapeake. We specialize in paint your own wooden items.  Items are all available to take home the same day.  

Do I need a reservation?

No.  Feel free to walk in during our open hours and pick any item to paint. If you have a party of 5 or more, you can contact us prior to coming in and we can reserve a table for you.  This will help us make sure that we have enough room for your party. If you already know what you will be painting, you can let us know that as well.  We will set the items aside to ensure that they will be available when you come in. 

How much does it cost?

Our wooden paintables range from $10-$30. Rock painting is $10 per basket. Large Door Hangers are $30 and Mini Door Hangers are $20. Finishing highlights and custom hand lettering on any item is an additional charge of $5. 

How long does it take?

Generally people spend 1-2 hours for most items. Large door hangers can take a little longer, depending on the shape. 

Can I bring food and drinks?

Absolutely. You're also welcome to order and have something delivered.

Do paints stain and are they safe to use?

Paint can be *MESSY*! We use non toxic acrylic paint, which will wash off our your hands and skin with soap and water.  Once dry, it does not wash out of clothing easily. We do have aprons available for adults and kids.

How old do you need to pant?

All ages are welcome at Paint Stuff Studio. Our items are wooden, so there is no fear of dropping and shattering your item. Younger children tend to paint very fast and will generally be done before an adult painting a larger item, please keep this in consideration when planning your trip.

I'm not very creative, can you help?

If only we had a nickel for every time someone has said this 🙂
We promise you are creative and your piece will turn out great! We recommend looking at Pinterest for ideas and maybe come up with a plan before you come, that can help get you moving in the right direction. We have circle daubers, stencils and other things to help bring your artwork to life. Also we can finish, highlight and custom handletter your masterpiece($5 additional charge).  Our goal is to make sure you leave with an art piece that you love!
