Everyone is talking about Annie Sloans Chalk Paint,
And those who try it LOVE it.
It’s expensive so before I bought it I thought I would try a
DIY chalk paint recipe first.
Make sure you dissolve the plaster of paris in very hot water first,
the first time I rushed & did not follow the directions, it was clumpy.
I made the diy chalk paint in cream and used it to paint a vintage liquor cart
& my dark stained dining room bench.
I apologize for not having a better before shot of the bench.
I am sure I am not alone in this,
but as a mom of a 2 yr old when I miraculously
get time to do a project like this
I often forget to take the before pics.

Like I said I do have a 2 yr old:).
I did really like the DIY chalk paint(it was a little watery, maybe a tiny bit less H20.)
However, last night I bit the bullet & bought it.
I have a few big projects & wanted to try it.
I ordered the “French Linen.”
It is a beautiful color & I am so excited to try it,
I will definitely keep you posted.
