First Experience with Chalk Paint - 31 Days of Junque Decor
So remember this post about the ladder on the front porch? That box holding the hydrangeas?
Well I really wanted it to be white. It was time to try a bit of chalk paint. Here's the box with 2 coats.
Then I got the sander out to take off some of that paint. Now I may have waited a few days too long and it got REALLY hard to remove! I had to use a lot of elbow grease, even with an electric sander!
I used a dark wax that I applied with a tshirt and a brush....just doing a little experimenting. I also decided to add a touch of blue chalk paint as well.
Then finished it off with the clear wax for a smooth finish.
Then back to the front porch it went.
It sure brightened it up a bit!
