Chalk Paint Project…a beginners attempt

Chalk paint is the hottest thing going in furniture refinishing.  The paint is terribly expensive but easy to use.  This is my first chalk paint project.  The chair was a freebie, picked from an old barn.

I don’t think the picture does it justice or it really looks like this…actually it looks pretty good sitting in the extra bedroom surrounded by other items I picked up while out junkin’.  There is a gal over at the antique mall that offers classes on painting furniture with chalk paint.  I think I should sign up…
