I, like various men and women, LOVE a excellent chalk paint. I take advantage of and love several exceptional brands however they can be on the expensive facet. I had a rather gigantic wood bookshelf just ready to be made over so I determined to make some DIY chalk paint with some less steeply-priced latex paint I had available.
here’s what the shelf looked like before – boring and out of date. To prep it I calmly sanded and cleaned the entire piece.
subsequent, I blended up my paint. Up to now i have additionally used plaster of Paris to make chalk paint however i’ve located that when utilising calcium carbonate i am in a position to store the paint for a longer period of time without it becoming lumpy. For a quart of paint I frequently add 8 tablespoons of calcium carbonate and 4-6 tablespoons of water. I combine that separately earlier than including to my paint. Because I was once planning to spray the paint I wanted so as to add yet another cup of water. When thinning your paint invariably start with small amounts and add except you might have your favored consistency.
i take advantage of a HVLP sprayer and it’s very main, peculiarly when using DIY chalk paint, to use a cone paint filter when loading your paint. This ensures that any chunks of dried paint or calcium carbonate are not making it into the gun and clog it up whilst you’re spraying.
it is usually very major to wear a mask when you are spraying. I laid the shelf on its back for the first a number of coats. When spraying inside the shelves I shrink the air output on my gun and that helps it go on easily without quite a lot of overspray coming proper again out into your face!
After 4 quick coats I delivered some pretty flora with my stamps! (See my different put up for more details on that!) once the flowers had been dry I frivolously distressed the shelf with a sanding sponge and then I sprayed the entire shelf with two coats of clear matte polyurethane for a long lasting conclude.
one of these high-quality transformation! In the event you love painted furnishings please determine out my instagram for lots more!
