Quick, straightforward class with a clear, easy demo on how to make a chalkboard out of pretty much anything. I'm happy to learn that there's such a thing as chalkboard paint, and I love Mr. Tomcat as well! :-)

So fun. Think I need to use this method to make some door hangings from driftwood for the cottage!
