3 Oaks Studio was started back in 2005 when my husband, Steve and I moved back home after his military retirement. The studio came about from my love of the painted finish, the use of color and my desire to help people discover their creativity in a relaxed, inspiring atmosphere. Since opening the studio, we have helped countless people learn how fun and easy DIY can be, whether it is a garage sale find, your cabinets, your walls, or a family treasure that has seen better days.
Together with my Handy Hubby, Steve, we opened the studio next to our vineyard on the property and the fun began. We have been featured at the Fresno Home Show each year since 2005, giving DIY seminars and have expanded to other featured shows from there, including 3 Speckled Hens in Paso Robles, Visalia Home Show, Goat Hill Fair in the Santa Cruz area and Glorious Junk Days in downtown Clovis.
We have grown, proudly becoming the central CA Stockist for Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan, and began expanding into Paso Robles and now our new Fresno location. Since I cannot be at all places at once, we have brought on some wonderful team members. Each is unique in their own way and bring something wonderful to the shops! If you haven’t met them stop in and say hi to Natalie, our store manager, along with Sandra, in our Clovis shop, who always has a smile for everyone!, Debbie, our Fresno manager along with Caitin in the Fresno location, and Sandy and Rachel in our Paso Robles store.
We also carry other environmentally friendly materials to elevate your painting style to include Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, Artisan Enhancements embellishment products, Wood Icing materials to name a few. We are constantly on the lookout for new wonderful ways to transform cabinets and furniture and most anything so keep watch to see what new products we will have next.
We truly aim to be your one stop shop for the DIYer as well as a go to place for designers to bring clients to see what can be achieved easily and economically.
So many new easy to use materials for DIYers! And even if you haven’t picked up a paint brush in years or ever, you can do this and we have workshops to help you get going!
Our most popular workshop is PAINT THERAPY™. This workshop was developed by Vicki some years ago and has grown into our customers’ favorite. Each month a different project is featured and students fill the studio to learn a little about painting, gilding, stenciling, decoupaging, foiling, or whatever the project piece of the month entails. It is a social time and participants are encouraged to bring their friends, family and BYOB – bring your own beverage. Projects as well as supplies and treats are provided!
