DIY Chalk Paint



Greetings! 
A big thank you to all who asked about the Chalk Paint recipe my Hubby used on this table, so as promised here it is! It's  quite simple,really, once you see it, you'll understand. 
My husband uses this recipe when he wants a pretty vintage finish on furniture. He does however play around with the measurements and consistency to get the look he wants. He also tries different paint types, such as flat, satin, etc. He likes to mix his own colors too, after all it's only paint;)  Now go have a little Chalk Paint Fun! xoxo tami

  15. Hi lovely,

    I did go and have a look at the tutorial. Who'd have thought it would be so easy!! I thought it would be a long complicated recipe. Does it really work?
