Grace, a recent BrushStrokes’ Chalk Paint student, sent us this wonderful photo of her grand daughter enjoying her table & chair set, Grace “refashioned” with Chalk Paint!

“My daughter Jen and I recently attended Mary Anne’s workshop. Excellent information and personable instructor! Look at the table and chairs I updated for our little granddaughter. She LOVES it!”

What a great workshop! Thanks so much…

“What a great workshop! Thanks so much. I really like the paint, too. The wax effect on the paint is well- awesome. I really would like to do some advanced techniques. The ones I am interested in are definitely the gilding. I would guild a milk carton if I could! Painting fabric, wax resist, stenciling and crackling finishes also appeal to me. So an advanced class that included those would be great for me.”

I can’t remember when I had so much fun doing something for me!…

“I absolutely loved your workshop today!  I can’t remember when I had so much fun doing something for me!  Thank you so much for inviting me.  You are an excellent instructor and I learned so much!  I am so excited about coming to your booth this week-end and getting my paint!  I actually went to Queen of Hearts today (after I went home), because I just wanted to get some paint and start painting!  They were out of the light wax, but I got the dark.  I will just play around with it tomorrow and see what happens!  I have lots and lots of old frames and some baskets to just experiment with!  THEN, I will begin my big project after I get the paint from you this weekend! Thanks again for the informative workshop!”

Mary Anne, I so enjoyed learning from you today!

“Mary Anne, I so enjoyed learning from you today!  ( Plus everyone was so nice in the class).  I already got my supplies from Home Depot and found the closet paint store in Chicago.  I am so excited to start on these projects.  I will definitely come to your advance class in the coming months!! ”

You are a great teacher!…

“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the class today! You are a great teacher! It sure was a lot to take in though. I sure hope that I can remember it all. I guess the best thing to do would just to roll up my sleeves and jump in right? Thanks again for all of you knowledge and patience.”

I call it “Savings in a Can!” I love it and it has saved us so much!

“I have never refinished pieces before but now am a huge fan! Pieces we thought needed to be replaced are now fun accents. I call it “Savings in a Can!” I love it and it has saved us so much!”
