And of course here is the reigning queen of Chalk paint, Miss Mustard Seed. Both corner cabinets and dresser have been painted in chalk paint.
Now I have heard some conflicting comments around blog land. Some say that it wipes off too easily with water, but I did read that it has to “cure” for a few day before you attempt to wipe with a wet rag. I recently painted a chair with Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint that I’m also reupholstering (which by the way is almost done I’m just waiting – between my hubs being sick and now me – for a trip to Home Depot for a pneumatic staple gun). It went on like a dream with virtually no drips and dried uber fast! I then dry brushed it the next day and it looks amazing. Oh and another comment I read was the lack of colors available. But I did hear that they are releasing more colors soon. Most stockists are back ordered but eventually get the product out to you. It is expensive but well worth it in time and money as there is no sanding, priming and it covers with less coats. So that said I pretty much love it. Oh and I did hear as well that when doing a second coat it “grabs” for more paint. I can see that point as there is no slickness to it at all.
Anyway, order yourself some chalk paint – you’ll be glad you did!
p.s. any suggestions on that pneumatic staple gun?

I received mine from Anne (different lady) in Canyon Lake California. She was very sweet and kept me up to date on the whereabouts of my paint.
