    The chest turned out so nice…thanks for sharing the DIY chalk paint recipe, I don’t want to invest $$ in the “real deal” as I don’t think I’d use it that much.

    Love what you’ve done – have not worked with chalk paint. I usually just use a spray can of Rustoleum and go to town on the piece I’m doing. I always LOVE the transformation from this to that! These pieces being no different – great job!!

      Thank you! I love spray paint, too! But this chalk paint really is simple!

    Love the furniture! I always get excited when you do a makeover;) What are your plans for the little black and white awning in the nook? I ask because if you are removing…Id maybe like to buy it for my little boys room…I have wanted to do something like that:)

      Thanks, Jenny! I’m excited, too! Unfortunately, I have already disposed of the awning! It was kinda faded and worn from the years.

    My chalk paint was very thick and pasty when I followed this recipe. I wonder if yours was the same consistency? After I painted for a while the water started to leak out of the paint and sit on top of the container.

      No, I don’t recall it being thick and pasty. It will separate a little if it sits for awhile so I would recommend stirring it periodically if it’s a job that takes awhile.
