SNAP! Was a Success !


We headed off to Salt Lake City last week for the SNAP! do-it-yourself bloggers three-day conference, where Minwax® was a sponsor and we had a booth in the show. We were demonstrating some of our products at the booth and finishing the chest in the background which we gave away on the final day’s drawing.

But the hit of the conference were the new Wood Finishing Cloths — water-based stain and finish on eight cloths in a convenient resealable package. Everyone had a chance to put on the gloves and give them a try.

Here were the first of the 525 do-it-yourselfers who stopped by the booth to try out the new Wood Finishing Cloths.

On both Friday and Saturday I had fun teaching staining and finishing classes to the bloggers at SNAP!

And of course we gave them even more opportunities to try out many of the Minwax® products. Here they are learning how to sponge on a faux finish using Minwax® Gel Stain.

Modern art at the Salt Lake City art museum? Nope – just one of our dropcloths at the end of the day.

The weekend was great fun, and a great learning experience for everyone. We’re already looking forward to the next one!

Until next time,

Thanks for stopping by.

    Thanks so much for coming to SNAP!, teaching us, and providing awesome swag and projects! I am still using the tips I learned from you last year, and staining is much more fun now. The only thing that would have improved my experience is if I would have won that awesome bench! 🙂

      Sorry we couldn’t have given away more than one, Kara. But hopefully we’ll be back next year with some more tips and something else to give away. Thanks for reading!

    Thank you so much for being such an awesome (as always!) conference sponsor at SNAP! We learned a bunch of great tips from your class, and the make and take project at your booth was a ton of fun. I somehow missed getting the Minwax swag in my bag this year, but I stopped by your booth and was graciously given a pack of the Finishing Cloths to bring home and try. I already have a great project in mind to use them on, but now my biggest issue is going to be wrestling them away from my boys who have big plans to use them to finish their Home Depot birdhouses! 😉

      Thanks for the kind words, Heidi. Glad you caught us at the booth so we could load up your goodie bag some more. Also glad to hear you’re enjoying the Finishing Cloths. Like I said with Kim below, it’s always nice when the entire family can get involved. Enjoy!

      Always like to hear successful Minwax stories, especially when it gets the entire family involved. Thanks for reading, Kim, and have fun! -Bruce
