About This Class

Hello and welcome to this class where I will show you an easy and fun technique to distress an old wood picture frame and transform it into a decorative shabby chic accent for your home in just a few easy steps.

There are a lot of different ways to distress your piece and everyone has their preference. In this class, I‘m going to show you a Two Color Distress with chalk paint, which when it‘s finished will look really cool and is something you can't really go wrong with. And this method will assist you in painting and distressing picture frames, shelves, old doors and even furniture.

Besides Anyone can do this. No previous experience necessary. This frame is so fun and easy, even kids can make it!

Designer, Decorator

I am an interior decorator working in ceramic tile company out of Munich, Bavaria. I moved from Russia to Germany 4 years ago and now run a shop with my own collection of tile decals & wall tattoos, EasySweetHome.

My hand painted art decals are about simple, but beautiful things created by nature: birds, butterflies, spring flowers, beautiful undersea world or just beauty of colors. It could be any thing from all around. But exactly these little things make our days better, don't they?

I am lucky to work with colors, emotions and humor every day. And it’s my hope that my classes here on Skillshare will help my students to unlock their creativity and new skills!
