Once you arrive at Board and Brush, you're greeted with an apron and your stencil. For those that may be intimidated by DIY projects, rest assured you will receive guidance the whole way through.

The owners of Board and Brush celebrated the opening of their second location on August 14. The opening involved a raffle, food and showcasing to the community their many creative opportunities.

Andrea Lormond, the co-owner of Board and Brush says she's a strong believer in stepping outside your everyday routine. "I believe in just the atmosphere of hanging out with everybody and getting away from the stress of the world," she said.

This can be accomplished at Board and Brush through creating do-it-yourself (DIY) signs for your home alongside family, friends, or community members. "My mission is to help people create memories," Lormond said.

The process begins by signing up for one of their many themed nights and picking your sign online. These parties can include a couples night, family night or something more specific; for example, a bachelorette party.

"I just want people to come, create memories and enjoy themselves," Lormond said.

However, your project will be unique to you. "Everybody gets to pick what they want, so not everybody is doing the same thing," Lormond said.

The unique part of this experience is that you will leave with something to remember the experience by.

"They come that night and they don't leave with nothing, you know it's something they keep forever," Lormond said.
