HOW SOON WILL PRODUCTS SHIP AFTER MY ORDER IS PLACED?
Orders will ship within 72 hours of placing your order. If the products you ordered are back ordered, you will be notified.
CAN AMY HOWARD AT HOME PRODUCTS BE OVERNIGHTED?
Our products can indeed be overnighted if your order is submitted before 11:00 AM CST. Simply select the overnight option in the shipping method portion of the checkout process.
HOW CLOSELY DO I NEED TO ADHERE TO YOUR INSTRUCTIONS TO GET THE SAME/SIMILAR EFFECT?
You should adhere to the posted instructions as closely as possible. The antiquing process, however, is as individual as the person doing it.
HOW DURABLE IS THE TOSCANA MILK PAINT?
We do not recommend it for daily use surfaces such as a breakfast room table, because it is water-soluble. It is, however, great for dressers, cocktail tables, beds, trim, and side tables. The Toscana Milk Paint™ should be treated as a fine antique. Do not place glasses or sharp or scratchy objects on the finished product. Do not use Endust or Pledge to clean the Toscana finish. Rather, use a soft cloth to buff on occasion.
WHERE DO YOU HOLD WORKSHOPS?
We host workshops in our Memphis studio and throughout the U.S. in our retailers’ studios. Amy Howard at Home® retailers have project-driven workshops that provide hands-on finishing techniques with instructors who have trained with Amy Howard.
I LOVE ARTWORK ON FURNITURE, BUT I AM NOT AN ARTIST. HOW CAN I ACHIEVE A SIMILAR LOOK?
Amy Howard at Home® provides stencils that you can use on your furniture projects.
ARE AMY HOWARD AT HOME PRODUCTS FOR TRAINED PROFESSIONALS? DO I NEED ANY PRIOR EXPERIENCE?
We highly recommend attending a workshop, and having an instructor provide suggestions on what to do and how to improve your craft. However, anyone can use Amy Howard at Home® products, especially with our online tutorials.
