No Hopscotch with this Chalk Paint!
I loved playing hopscotch when I was a little girl…boy, has that been a long time ago. 🙂
I find myself working or playing with chalk again as I have found a paint that is a chalk paint and I like the way it makes furniture look distressed (or not) depending on the coverage one chooses.
Last week, I showed you, my dear readers….my garage sale purchases.
I decided to use chalk paint on a table and hutch which I plan to use in one of the Flip Houses.
And I thought you might like to see the process of using this neat paint.
Yes, I love to work crossword puzzles….as you can see on my newspaper!
The paint goes a long way and if you want to use a regular paint brush you can, but I like the effect of using this round brush.
Actually, it is a lot like a simple painting….but it depends on how stressed you would like your piece to look.
The first thing one has to do is clean the piece with Simple Green cleaner.
Jesse James is giving me moral support! 😉
Now here is the best part…..NO sanding! Just apply the paint to any surface.
The finished furniture piece is so cool….it almost looks like a soft velvet. (I am sure that is not an accurate description, but you get my drift) 🙂
That is why I have pictures…..:) Again, the coverage depends on what you actually prefer. A streaked look (kind of like when we were kids and we painted something) OR….to a more matte coverage.
This is not a good pic as the wall behind it is an off white too….:(
I am not finished with this piece yet, but I couldn’t wait to show you what I have done so far.
I still have to put a “top coat” on it, but after I have it “staged” with “stuff”, I will show you that picture too.
I really like to paint things, anything! It just makes rooms or furniture seem new again.
What are your thoughts on painting?
Have a great Monday!
