Hammer & Stain Gulf Shores is a do-it-yourself art studio in the Pelican Place shopping center between Target and the movie theater.

At this unique space, you will transform unfinished wood into beautiful, personalized works of art during fun, instructor-guided workshops.

Hammer & Stain also holds open paint days if you just want to drop in alone or with family and friends.

The studio will also conduct private party events suitable for birthdays, teambuilding, holidays, date nights and girls’ night out.

Don’t have time for a class? Purchase a take-home kit. Want a customized event at your Meyer beach house? Call the owners, and they’ll bring the artsy party to you: 251-948-0483.

Other unique spaces to create your own art include the Gulf Coast Arts Alliance at Waterway Village and the Coastal Arts Center in Orange Beach.

Bring the entire family for a fantastic reunion at the beach and stay in a beautiful beach house with five or more bedrooms.

Don’t need that much space for your next girlfriend getaway? Choose a smaller beach house or a three-bedroom condo.
