Chalk Paint -
Chalk paint is so popular right now! It’s a great option when you want a really flat, chalk like finish. Because it is so flat and porous, it does need to be sealed with either a top coat or a wax. It’s a thicker paint that provides great coverage (sometimes in just one coat!) but because of this it also show brushstrokes and a bit more texture than other paints - this may be a look that is desired (or not)!
It’s a very easy paint to distress, and there are many options to make it a very decorative finish, it’s good for use on wood, furniture and even fabric.
There are so many brands of chalk paint, it’s hard to list them all - some you may have heard of would be Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Dixie Belle, Heirloom Traditions, DIY paint, and more!
