I have been a lover of chalk paint ever given that I went to my friend’s household in Dallas and observed the incredible transformation she had done to her home furniture utilizing chalk paint. Her home furnishings was all classic mahogany wooden and seemed alternatively darkish. All her parts had been nicely created and very beautiful but the in general vibe was a little bit dim and weighty. When I walked into her new household and noticed the transformation, I was wholly in awe. She had applied Annie Sloan chalk paint to customize each piece of furnishings she had. The all round influence was gentle and ethereal, a correct farmhouse influence that appeared so stylish and up to the moment. I do not know if anybody has at any time shopped for Annie Sloan’s chalk paint, it is seriously the very best chalk paint about, but it also can be pricy and hard to uncover. For people good reasons, I started looking Youtube for recipes to make my very own chalk paint and I discovered a good tutorial by Mr. Diy Dork. This tutorial explains particularly how to make chalk paint and is not difficult at all.
- 1 section Plaster of Paris
- 3 parts flat (or eggshell) acrylic latex paint
- Mix with a fork (it would be valuable to use an old immersion blender if you have 1 that you can dedicate to paint only)
Initially, you will mix a Plaster of Paris slurry that you will insert to your flat latex paint.
Then, you blend the latex paint and Plaster of Paris with a fork, you can also use an immersion blender.
This is a fantastic tutorial and Mr. Do it yourself Dork also tells us how to sand and seal our chalk painted surfaces. This video actually helped me deal with all my painting assignments.
