Chalk Paint is an ancient paint, and has been around since B.C., and is NOT a modern invention. Chalk Paints, Milk Paints & Special Effect paints and techniques are becoming extremely popular with the DIY community. WHY? With Chalk Paints, there’s usually no need for sanding or priming. (The exception may be if you’re going to paint a very shiny surface) A slight scuffing/sanding (to create some ‘tooth’) is recommended.
We all know how difficult it can be to give up those treasures we have taken time to put together. Just the other day I was telling someone how hard it is when I see a piece of fabric leave the store that I absolutely love. I see is the 70's Bell Bottoms or Skirt that my head has been making out of it, walking out. The good thing is I also see the excitement of the new owner and often wonder what they see themselves making with it.
