A few years ago I first tried chalk paint while redoing some furniture from my husbands’ childhood room, to put into Nickerbean 1’s big girl room. I mixed my own, because once again, I’m a frugal kinda lady.. I browsed many recipes online and found one that made me feel most comfortable–meaning, I recognized the ingredients and knew where to buy them. (The recipe is at the bottom of this post)
Ok, now for the goods.
Plaster of paris is found at the hardware store or probably craft store or you can find it here from your sofa. When your project is painted, use wax to seal and protect it. The wax also gives it a pretty sheen. This is the type I buy.

Let me know if you try your hand at painting something! Did you use the recipe? If you have any questions, please ask.
I’ll be back Thursday with a dresser makeover. Make sure you subscribe by email so you don’t miss it.
Thanks for reading, friends!
