A few days ago I decided to give a try to chalk paint to decorate small objects that I have at home. Chalk paint is a type of paint with a soft matte finish that can be used on almost any surface and does not require any treatment prior to apply it. It is also an eco friendly paint, water-based and made with natural components.
Once the paint is applied you can give it different finishes: can be sanded in some areas to give a vintage touch, you can give several layers of different colors, different types of wax or varnish to darken the paint or just go for a light wax.
To start trying it I ordered a small bottle 100 ml of pink antique color in Crea Decora y Recicla online store. I manage to paint 4 wood boxes of different sizes and even to decorate a stool from Ikea.
Maybe I’ll paint a large piece of furniture in the future with this paint. If you search on internet you will discover that you can do many things with it, this is just the beginning! : P
