Frosty by Design
A self-described "paintologist" and furnishings designer, Michelle Frost has a way of making objects appear unrecognizable. At Frosty by Design, she does this with her line of shabby-chic pigments: the Van Gogh Chalk Paint Collection, a water-based, low-VOC formula with a vintage look that's easy to distress. Because chalk paint doesn’t require that surfaces be sanded before application, it's ideal for refinishing furniture, updating cabinets, or transforming old Barbies into miniature recreations of Renaissance sculptures. In addition to rehabbing old tables, bureaus, and chairs—which she sells at her shop—Frost leads workshops to teach visitors methods for mixing and applying colours, as well as tricks of the trade.
