What chalk paint should I use?
I have been painting furniture for at least 20 years. From my first painted "upcycled" refrigerator/stereo cabinet in college, to painting all the roadside rescues that have furnished my homes throughout the years.
I started painting ages before this thing called "Chalk Paint" came into the picture. Let's face. Cavemen beat us to it a few years back. I mean, they were chalk painting way before it was branded and marketed, and before it started coming in much prettier colors than "Bone" and "Dried blood".
So, I do know a thing or two about how to test drive paint. Vrroom Vrroom!
I know the good, the bad, and the ugly. How to really push it to the limit and see if it holds up.
Why I use what where and why I don't use certain brands anymore.
In order of appearance I compare homemade chalk paint, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Debi's Design Diary Chalk and Clay Paint, and Dixie Belle Paint.
I tell you how I ended up at each paint, what I like, and what was challenging.
Please note that these are my own personal experiences and I want to share them with you honestly and truthfully but they are only my opinions. Please do let me know what you think of my assessments. Do you agree or have you had a different experience? Id love to hear it!
Also please tell me if there is a paint you would like me to test drive for you. I love to experiment!
