This past week while Troy was on a business trip, I decided to make myself busy by finishing our nursery to surprise him!
I had heard about a new product called “Calk Paint or chalk paint” that you can use on furniture and not have to suffer the hassle of sanding or priming the wood first. Knowing that the nursery was not going to be a easy task to finish in 5 days, Chalk paint seemed like a God-send! I searched all of Kelowna and not one place carried it, so I decided to make my own. The process was actually way easier then I thought and my furniture turned out great!
My learnings with using this product-
1)The first coat looks horrible! So don’t get worried the second coat will smooth everything out.
2)Once the paint has been sitting for awhile, little lumps will form “Plaster of Paris” add a tiny bit of water, mix and paint should thin out.
3)The Chalk paint will be thinker then any paint you have worked with and will have a bit of a sandy sound going unto the wood.
