I discovered chalk paint a year ago and I have been obsessed. What is it? Its paint that you can literally paint anything with, no sanding needed. Because it dries as chalk, you can sand off and give pieces a beautiful distressed vintage look. Suddenly that 70s buffet hutch becomes the best piece in your house.
I tackled 2 projects this spring. One was to makeover my dining room and the other was to create some wedding props for my upcoming wedding photos.
Here is a little glimpse at what chalk paint can do for you! Its super easy to do!
My makeover of the 90s country table chairs. Chalk paint and a simple stapler reupholster job with Pendelton Blanket material.
My next project was to refinish some old chairs so that they would be used in my wedding portraits…
I have used both the American Paint Co and FAT Paint Co. Both work great, but I did prefer the FAT Paint better. You can only by Fat Paint from a retailer, American you can buy online from the Crowsnest Pass.
Its a great product and so fun to restore an old piece. Both companies recommend using a wax to finish and seal the product. I scrapped that and bought a can of clear matte water based varnish at Home Depot. Its worked fabulous!!
