Step Five: Sand Surface Once More
Step Six: Lay Down Mesh Stencil And Press So It Adheres To Your Surface
Step Seven: Apply ChalkART To Stencil With A Squeegee Or Spreader
You don't need a ton of product! Put some product on your tool and press it through the Mesh Stencil.
Step Eight: Keep Adding Your Stencils Until You Are Happy With The Design
Once your stencil designs have dried, sand your surface.
Step Nine: Apply Two Coats Of Matte Sealer
Tip: If you want a softer feel, wax your chair after the sealer dries with Mind Your Own Beeswax. Apply the wax and buff.
