The Rustic Brush

Two Saturdays ago, I went out to The Rustic Brush. What is The Rustic Brush? Well, it's a place where you can make wood wall art. You will need about two to three hours (the class is structured for three hours) to complete everything depending upon size of your item and how fast you work. 


Booking Details/Pricing

You need to book at least two days in advance via the online website here-you must be a legal adult to attend the class due to alcohol being in the area (18). The Rustic Brush is currently in four states-Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Florida. Texas is the only place currently with multiple locations. Pricing ranges between $50.00 to $200.00 depending on the selection made. You make your selection when you book your class and pay up front so make sure you get to the class.  


Atmosphere 

I'm sure each location will be slightly different but I don't think it will be much off from my experience. I went to the Pearland location which is in Texas. There was music playing in the background with staff around to help guide you every step of the way. If you select open class like I did you will be with whoever you go with personally as well as strangers. Most strangers are super friendly, as I've experienced. It's a very chill and collaborated atmosphere. 


Overall Thoughts 

I found the experience to be really fun. You can bring your own booze and snacks. The staff walk you through each step of the process to ensure you get the best results possible, which I appreciated because I never used a power tool in my life. 



You get a stencil for your wood piece in order to paint onto the wood. You selected this when you booked the class. Depending on what you choose, there could be multiple pieces of wood or just one. You will sand the edges to smooth them out, put the wood pieces together if you have multiple pieces, stain your wood and paint your stencil on. It's very hands-on which I found to be really cool. 


Mix your hands-on experience with good conversation with whoever you bring with you, alcohol and snacks and I think it's a great way to spend a Friday or Saturday night. It can be used for Girls Night Out or Date Night. I think it works for either, honestly. For me, it was a Girls Night Out. I would absolutely go back and make something else. I'm planning another Girls Night Out with other friends at the moment so hopefully I'll be back soon.
