I have a secret...
I have never painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!!
I know, it's a shame....but I haven't been able to bring myself to pay the price.
but I will soon...it's been calling my name.
For the time being, since I am new to painting furniture, I use my homemade version of chalk paint and so far I am loving the results I am getting
To make it...
2 tablespoons unsanded grout to 1 cup of flat paint
I used my free Clark + Kensington paint from Ace Hardware
The color is Venice Beach
I started with this piece...my mom rescued it for me.
It was in pretty bad shape...
My favorite thing about chalk paint is that there is no sanding needed!
Just make sure the mixture is nice and smooth before you start.
I painted on a few good coats, let it dry and then I distressed it with a fine grit sand paper and hand sanded it to shabby non perfection, perfection
It found a home in my art studio for the time being....
How about you? Have you painted anything with homemade chalk paint before? Or is it time that I bite the bullet and start buying some Annie??
I would love to hear what you think, Thanks so much for stopping by!
