    I have a sideboard that I would like to "spiff up."
    It has a birch top and is white.
    What is the trick or method or just some hints about chalk painting?
    Any info appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Have not done chalk painting but did read something about the inventor of it. She said not all chalk paints are like hers-there is something particular in her paints that other brands do not deliver. Have to see if I can find out where I saw that interview.

    Our city's fashion/decor district has a business that promotes classes and items for sale with chalk paint. https://www.thepaintedbench.ca/produ...ry/chalkpaint/

    There is a place in London called Stan Portleys. It sells the Annie Sloan chalk paint and I think has classes as well. You can google it

    Hi, @avoncallingu!!

    The nice thing about chalk paint is that there isn't the prep-work that's usually involved with other painting methods.
    AND you don't even have to buy chalk paint! You can mix 2C of regular paint with 1/3C of Plaster of Paris and some water. (the recipe on the site below is a little different)

    I want to paint our nightstands and a wall unit and was looking at chalk paint sites today and found recipes! Good to know you can use up paint you may already have. You can tint paint with the little Plaid-type bottles from Michaels.

    Here are 3 recipes with photos for chalk paint!

    Great minds, huh??
