freshlypieced I may have found a new addiction - chalk-painting things! This stuff is amazing!! Not a brush mark or a drip in sight!! Of course, we'll see how I feel about it when I get to the waxing. Lol. 24h
  •   peppiflo What?!?! You have to wax chalk paint?!?! That explains why it is so matte. I was just going to go get a clear gloss spray paint. Hilarious. I used it for the first time today on candlesticks and a pot. 23h
  •   judy_durant Beautiful color. 23h
  •   sewpixie I used the same color on my bathroom vanity. Still need to wax the doors and pop them on. Whoops! Went quite a long time before I waxed the base and it still held up dandy in the bathroom. 23h
  •   sewcharmed Love it! 23h
  •   krazgrl0524 You can hardly buff them enough. We did our oak table, chairs & bar stools. 22h
  •   sewbeait Looks great 22h
  •   tophatquilter Did you get the wax buffing brush? I didn't at first but went back for it... It makes the it so much easier:) 21h
  •   trina_peterson Wow. Love that color though. 18h

freshlypieced One coat done! I think I like this stuff. 1d
  •   freshlypieced @cheryljamo No, no primer or sanding or anything required with this paint! Apparently that's why everybody loves it so much. It sticks to anything. They do recommend waxing it afterwards, which I plan to do. 1d
  •   cheryljamo Wow!think I'm in love! Very exciting, can't wait to see your finished product x 1d
  •   artandstole It's beautiful! @maddiebeachbear 1d
  •   happysewlucky Been meaning to try that stuff out for ages. Looks great. 1d
  •   judy_durant @freshlypieced is this paint the same as old fashioned milk paint? 24h
  •   threadedquilting I'm THIS () close to painting our piano with that kind of paint! 😬 Don't know what color yet, but that brand/type of paint was highly recommended. 24h
  •   gretchens42 I'm really intrigued. Have a piece that needs some livening up. 23h
  •   trina_peterson I think I must try this. No sanding beforehand!? 😯 That's my kind of paint. I believe I'd take the waxing in trade. 18h

freshlypieced I'm trying out my chalk paint today! Here's the "before"shot. I got a great deal on this table from Target, thanks to the awful color. If my paint job turns out, I'm planning to use it in my booth at Quilt Market. 1d

  •   tashaspatchwork And I was wondering when they will get back. Still waiting for mine. 3w
