Now - on to the chalk paint! As I said, I followed a make-your-own recipe for this, which was 1/2 cup of warm water mixed with 1/2 plaster of paris, and then once that was fully mixed I added 1 1/2 cups of plain white paint (finish doesn't matter - so I used what I had on hand which happened to be semi-gloss. Because of the Plaster of Paris the finish will always be matte).
After I mixed up my paint it was just a matter of patience. Remember - this is essentially watered down paint - so it goes on VERY thin.

And at last...
Have you used chalk paint? What were your thoughts on it?
