Sherry posted about her escapades with homemade chalk paint and she found success with only spending $4.00
Homemade Chalk Paint Recipe
1 1/2 Cups of latex paint
1/2 Cup water
1/2 Cup Calcium Carbonate
Then I ran down to Littleton, Colorado and met with the lovely ladies at The Little Black Chair. They sell all the Annie Sloan products and have a ridiculously amazing warehouse where they create perfectly beautiful stuff!
They also enlightened me on what to do when I got home.
2. Use very thin coats of wax or it will never dry. Thin coats will dry in 24 hours.
One bonus is this paint dries SUPER fast-love it!
I went pretty heavy with the dark wax. You can go lighter and get a much more subtle look.
Or you can use only the clear and just get a nice shiny finish with just abit of emphasis on the distressed areas.
But if you are afraid to make your own or need the wax, brushes, cheesecloth, head over to The Little Black Chair and order it from them!
