Homemade Chalk paint experiment


I went to buy plaster to make my own chalk paint. Since I am an impatient and WalMart didn't have plaster i bought a tub a premixed patching plaster. I just came home and added my paint and some water and painted an old board I had in the garage, i didn't want to paint anything important in case it doesn't work.
Brush Meadow paint for first coat and and if it works a cream color for second coat. Wish me luck !

    I have been making my own chalk paint from the beginning. My favorite is the calcium carbonate and latex paint. And after that it is the plaster of paris & paint. The best thing is that I just buy the sample paints for a couple of dollars and add the calcium carbonate and can paint the furniture, distress it and wax it for pretty cheap. The hardest thing anymore is finding a piece of furniture that someone is charging a lot more then they should because they so many of us out here are looking for things like that.
