Well, I don’t want to sound cocky and arrogant, but everyone can paint.
Let me explain this. You see that cute dresser at a garage sale and decide to take it home and paint it with chalk paint. Good plan!
You clean the dresser, remove the hardware and smooth up the surface a bit (if you serious, some people don’t even do this) and start painting. Two layers of chalk paint, a bit of wax, maybe 1 hour of work and voila, you have painted your own piece!
Nothing wrong with this but now you have painted but didn’t create a piece which reflects your personality or creativity……
For example look at the above dresser, bought at a estate sales in a fair condition. It took us almost 3 days! in hard work to get it to the final design. We had to fill a few spots with wood filler, sanded it a bit and got to work with our chalk paint collection. I think we used 3 or 4 different techniques to get to the end result.
On this piece we used 4 different colors, 2 different waxes and a lot of hand painted designs.
Love to see you guys at one of our workshops, we have now 4 different locations and we are working on more,
