Let me just start by saying I just love reading blogs...I learn something every time I do.
One thing that I see coming around more and more is Chalk Paint recipes. I formulated one of my own a while back because I cannot see paying the high cost for the name brand.
I have used mine on many pieces of furniture and have not been disappointed a single time. I love the fact that there is little to no before prep...You just mix and paint...sand and maybe paint again.
Very easy to work with.
This was the very first table that I transfromed with my chalk paint and I did not have a clue what I was doing. I learned many lessons with this baby but it still turned out great and I only had to put two coats on it.
The magazine holder I bought at a yard sale for 50 cents and I just washed it and painted one coat...turned out perfect. Sold in RECORD TIME!!
The table to the left
was the most challenging piece that I have done by far...
I don't know what I did different...but let me tell you, that table has so many coats of paint on it and was sanded so many times...
I finally just gave up and finished it...
It sits in my living room and I use it every day..Turned out Beautiful...I think my formula was off a bit...WINK WINK !!!
The coffee table was the easiest piece..well after a little repairs on other parts of the table...the top was in pretty bad shape.alt="UndertheTableandDreaming" border="0" src="http://i693.photobucket.com/albums/vv298/theliebertfamily/party.png" />
