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! :-)

I'm Peggy and I enjoy crafting. A lot. I'll be sharing some of my fun craft projects here on Skillshare.

Many of my classes are reuse and recycle craft projects, which makes them inexpensive to make.

I've also published an easy sewing class and hope you'll check it out. If you have a bit of sewing experience my simple sewing projects will be perfect for you!

Have fun crafting!
