Beginners Chalk Paint Class

Chalk paint is paint usually used exclusively on chalkboards, but recently it’s been more and more on trend and is finding itself slathered on furniture, walls and other items to give it that chic, chalky appearance, and also to double as a chalkboard if you see it fit! In this class, you learn to work with chalk paint to revamp old and new furniture. Perfect if you have items around the house you’ve been itching to give a do-over.
