Haven Blogger Conference Recap

Haven Blogger Conference Recap

Posted by DecoArt on Aug 10th 2016

This year, DecoArt loaded up a van and road tripped five and a half hours south to Atlanta, Georgia... the home of Home Depot and the Haven Conference! Check out all of the fun from our road trip by searching #decoarthavenroadtrip on Instagram.

After unloading, we took the Marta and ventured downtown. We made it to the Georgia Aquarium about one hour before they closed and ran from exhibit to exhibit to see all of the celebrities from under the sea. There were beluga whales, whale sharks, giant manta rays, dolphins, and more! We had such a great time and will definitely go back again next year!

Thursday was full of setup time in the booth. The Haven Conference is a blogger conference specifically for DIY bloggers so it was important for us to let people get their hands dirty with some of our newest additions to the Americana Decor line. Huge shout out to our friends at HomeRight for supplying a Finish Max Sprayer and Spray Shelter for our giveaway.

On Friday, two of DecoArt's Core Bloggers, Amy (Atta Girl Says) and Albion (Albion Gould) taught a hands on educational session featuring the NEW Americana Decor Outdoor Living and Color Stain paints. Our good friends at Walnut Hollow were so generous by sending in surfaces and clock mechanisms for the entire class!

The food options in the Buckhead area were definitely plentiful. We always make and effort to enjoy the Buckhead Pizza Co. (at least once, this time twice) while we're there!

On Saturday, Mallory and Savannah of Classy Clutter taught a hands on educational session featuring the NEW Americana Decor Satin Enamels and Metallics paints. A huge thanks to Floracraft for supplying the foam and faux succulents for the attendees to use in their wooden planters. During the session, Mallory and Savannah showed everyone how quick and easy it is to update a $35 IKEA RAST dresser with a little bit of DecoArt paint and stunning hardware from Liberty Hardware.

Most importantly, we LOVED meeting every single one of you guys! We look forward to working with you in the future and seeing you again at Haven 2017!
