You will need:
I added about three tablespoons of plaster of paris to the water in my bowl.
After mixing those together, I poured in about a half a cup of paint.
Stir the combo together.
You want to end up with a thick paint mixture a little thicker than yogurt.
It's not an exact science, add more water if the paint is too thick, or plaster of paris if the paint is too thin.
I've had a vintage door in my garage for about a year and my husband is dying for me to get it out of his parking space. I starting painting the door with my homemade chalk paint.
Once the door is covered, let the paint dry.
Chalk paint dries fast, so you won't have to wait long.
As I explained yesterday, chalk paint goes on very dull and in order to bring out the color of the paint and to seal your work, you need to apply a layer of wax. I used SC Johnson paste wax.
You literally brush on a thin layer of wax
and wipe off the extra with a dry cloth.
I took out my sander and distressed the edges of my door.
This is the final result with my home made chalk paint.
