Anyone done any furniture chalk painting? I recently did a dresser that we dug out of someone's trash
. It turned out pretty good for my first attempt, although I didn't use wax on it. I'm now thinking about doing my bedroom suite. Any suggestions? Post up pics of some pieces you have done.
For those that are like "chalk paint??", basically it's easy to use paint. It's super thick, doesn't require any prepping (sanding,stripping, etc. I guess the worse it looks, the better?). It goes on really easily, I was surprised and it's doesn't take a lot of paint to cover your project. The paint is pretty expensive but it goes a long way. Me being the cheap ass that I am, I got some from Walmart. It was Waverly brand. Next time I'll get the good stuff, Annie Sloan and see if it makes much difference.
Our "dumpster" piece had a broken leg, and had been abused with stickers and fingernail polish. Between paint, and all new knobs, I think I had about $40 into it. I put it on facebook and immediately sold it for $150, someone else said they would have given me $200, after the fact. Well here's some pics. If I can do it, anyone can. http://s266.photobucket.com/user/01g.../Chalk%20Paint
The pics ended up in reverse order, from after to before. Don't mind the lawn furniture in my dining room. We sold our dining room set so we'd have less to move, when we move.
