Recipe For Chalk Paint, $5.00 Make Over


2 Tablespoon's Plaster Of Paris
2 Tablespoon's Hot Water
1 Cup Of Paint
Mix plaster of Paris and hot water together until it dissolves and mix the 1 cup of water. Sometimes I have use a extra Tablespoon of Plaster if I want it to look really chalky.
I to over it with a green scotch Bite to take off any runs and to make it look smoother. I use a fine sand paper and distress it. I wipe it down and use stain on the distress marks. I like it sit for 24 hours and wax it. I use three coats. If it is sometime that doesn't have a lot of wear wax is great.
If you notice a double post for some reason my app on my IPad froze it and deleted my pictures.
