On Saturday we headed out for a chalk dust paint class at the My Savvy Sister's warehouse where Debbie & Vickie taught us many techniques using chalk dust. With the chalk dust, you can add it to a quart of paint and it goes much further than the other paints on the market. We all loved the product and the great hosts that Debbie & Vickie were!
