I've had a lot of requests lately for my recipe for my
Homemade Chalk Paint.
So, I decided just to make a post about it, so I can now refer everyone to a link. :)
Its actually not my recipe.
It was given to me by Val from 2ndEssence
and it works like a charm.
That's all there is to it.
It adheres to anything.
It doesn't have the initial smoothness of ASCP,
but it does sand out to a very nice finish.
Its pretty much my go-to when I'm not using ASCP and it was all I used before I made the financial commitment to purchase Annie Sloan's original version.
Here are some examples of the many, many things
I've painted using this recipe.
It has made re-doing pieces soooooo much easier.
If I had a blog post available for the piece, I provided the link to them.
So you can see the befores and know just what this recipe can do for you. :)
|Dumpy Thrifted Desk|
|Bland Dining Room Table|
|Gaudy Gold Mirror|
|Antique Lady's Writing Desk|
|Vintage Pine Chimney Cabinet|
|Daddy's Rocking Chair|
|Pleather Thrifted Footstool|
See... There's just no end to what you can do with it.
And you can mix up all the colors of the rainbow.
So, that's why even though I'm primarily using ASCP now, I don't think I'll ever quit using homemade.
Because, you never know when you just might find a piece of furniture that's telling you to give it its own special color. ;)
