For those asking about Chalk Paint…

It is ANOTHER of the many “decorative” finishes that you can seal with Polyurethane to “seal in” place your creation if you want a long term solution that wears well and in an area where you’d have to clean / scrub the finish (something that a wax finish won’t stand up to).

Here is a great website I came across where a woman did her Kitchen Cupboards EASILY with Milk Paint… as there is little to NO PREP WORK required (the part of the job that drives people crazy… before they even get started).

This makes Milk Paint a great alternative for this labour intensive job that many Home Renovators find themselves facing as a cheap / make do (for a few more years) vs. total Kitchen Replacement which can be uber-expensive !!

Wow! It turned out amazing! I have an old dresser in my shed to do the same thing with, just waiting for the weather to get warmer. You did such a great job that I want to drag mine in the house and get it done.

@peasantsong:  I definitely will. I’m going to show how yours came out to dh. We’ve been debating over finish, I want to paint it grey with white accents and he wants to stain it. I think showing him how good yours looks may win him over.

That is gorgeous! We also need a new tv stand so hmm 🙂 . But everything decent that I’ve come accross (on Cl) has been over priced!
