Last week I had the opportunity to go to Artworks in Spokane, Washington to do some Chalk Paint™training for my employer, The Antique Barn, who will be the first ones in Montana to stock the paint. We were lucky to have Nancy Jones as a teacher--this woman knows paint! Here are a few pieces painted with Chalk Paint™ in her beautiful shop:
but paint colors are a dime a dozen. I think my number one reason for converting is the speed and ease that it takes to paint a piece with the paint. I love that it sticks to any surface, but the homemade stuff seemed to as well. The homemade stuff does not go on as beautifully and quickly as Annie Sloan's paint does. And the homemade paint certainly does not sand "like butta" like the Chalk Paint™ does, and neither does any other paint I have ever used. Revisonary Life shared a great post on the paint and why it is worth the cost--read it here.
I picked up this dresser with glossy veneer at a yard sale.
