The Two Hour Piece
Some of my furniture renovations take time, lots of time. Sometimes I need a break from those time-intensive pieces. A break for me means that I whip out a nice cool neutral color, turn it into homemade chalk paint and cover a large piece like this one. Homemade chalk is easy to make: 3 parts paint to 1 part Plaster of Paris. Mix the PoP with enough water to get a soft peanut buttery consistency then add the paint and mix very well. It will need sanding after painting. Seal it with wax or poly. I used Minwax Wipe-On Polyurethane on this piece because it's strong and super easy to apply.
