When I picked this one up they had already gutted it!! Bonus!!
I finally used homemade chalk paint, and I am happy to say I was pleasantly surprised but the outcome. I think it sticks much better than other chalk paint and it holds up better against water!
Here is the Recipe I used
Plaster of Paris
3 parts paint
1 part plaster of paris
Combine water with Plaster of Paris, adding a little bit at a time until you get a nice smooth consistency. Add more water to break down the powder. Once the powder has dissolved in the water add to your paint and MIX
I really did not stray from this recipe! It worked awesome, just a note, this paint doesn’t store very well unless it is air tight, so either work really fast or store in a mason jar.
I love how well it distressed, I also used Vaseline to distress this piece (tutorial here)
Once it was distressed I applied Annie Sloan’s Clear Wax and then Brushed on a touch of her dark wax!
The inside is painted with Benjamin Moore’s White Dove cause that is my favorite ivory color and I love the contrast!
Fun little storage on the top!
I left this plaque original as a fun reminder of what this piece used to be!
