Handlettering at the Biltmore (Almost)

One reclaimed cabinet door + One lettering tutorial and One jar of chalk paint = spend an evening painting in the artist studio and sipping champagne at Historic Westwood

Create a lovely piece for your abode or a gift for a friend…

The Knox Heritage Salvage Shop has over 30 cabinet doors just begging to be upcycled. Choose one and you’re off!

Paint yours in a velvety shade of chalk paint. (You’ll take home a secret recipe for making your own!) While it’s drying, you’ll learn a lovely lettering script that looks like you’ve been practicing for years. Accessorize your handmade treasure with odd bits of historical hardware and this time you’re off to (nonchalantly) brag about how easy it was to create something so
lovely in one evening.

Oops, we forgot to mention that you’ll be creating all this in the art studio at Historic Westwood, a room that dates back to 1890 and makes you feel like you are at the Biltmore.

Oh, and we’ll be drinking champagne.
