However, for all the good there is one big downfall: the stuff comes with a pretty steep price tag. Think around the $40 mark for a fairly small container.
Anyway, I decided before I shelled out the big bucks for some Anne Sloan Chalk Paint I would try the DIY version.
I found a few different recipes for DIY chalk paint and decided to give this one a try:
1 part hot water
1 part Plaster of Paris
3 parts water-based paint
Heat the water and mix in the plaster of paris until it completely dissolves and becomes smooth. Thenpour in the paint and mix again. (My 5 year old was happy to help!)
If it gets too thick or lumpy like this...just a add a little bit more water.
Once you get a good consistency, start painting and distressing.
I told you the coverage on this stuff is no joke! This is after just one coat.
