Tammy S. Milam was born and raised in Acadiana. Recognizing the need for creative fun entertainment, she opened the 1st paint and sip franchise in July 2009. It was a place where one can get a feel of what it's like to be creative without being intimidated.

Ten years later, and having planned over 6100 parties, she discovered Hammer & Stain Lafayette, a Do It Yourself (DIY) Workshop that specializes in preparing unfinished wood projects into wall worthy pieces AND offers the same fun experience. You'll feel empowered the minute you walk in the workshop. We'll demonstrate step by step on how to complete your project however you do still work at your own pace. No rush...you're there to enjoy, relax and create. Hammer & Stain Lafayette offers quality wood products that you build yourself and customize to your liking. Whether you have a favorite quote or design, we can help you put it on wood. BYOB + DIY = FUN!
