When I last shared my attempt at making chalk paint, things didn’t go as planned. I always assume it’s my doing, so I kept at it. Since I already own the Non-Sanded Grout and have a million sample pots of paint, I tried again.
In its original state.
My indecision. First it was going to be gray. Then red. Yuck- the red was too pink.
Then I painted it Old White with a touch of Coco. It was too white.
I arrived at a creamy, very pale yellow.
Because I never tape off the glass, here is a shot after I take the razor to it!!
2 TBSP Non-Sanded Grout (available at Home Depot)
1 sample pot of paint
Water – added as needed
Mix it all together, add water as needed. The paint will be a bit lumpy – not smooth like latex. That’s ok. Keep stirring and adding water as you go along.
- The paint went on with great coverage, similar to ASCP.
- It sanded well, though required a bit more effort than ASCP.
- Waxed beautifully, using AS clear wax.
- This recipe will provide many color choices that I have been looking for.
Tomorrow I will share the finished China Cabinet. It has had numerous lives, but I believe she is done. There is also a GIVEAWAY coming! I love the product and am eager to share!
Have a great day!
