Really, a paint that will stick to any surface? Does it really work? You mean I don't have to strip paint or prime first? What is this mystery paint? Chalk paint. I've read all about it in the "blogosphere". I watched tons of Youtube videos. Now it's time to try CeCe Caldwell's Chalk Paint.
I brushed on 2 coats (thick) and waited for it to dry. It drys lighter than the finished product.
I painted the top CeCe Caldwell's Vermont Slate.
I lightly sanded the table with a fine grit paper to expose the original finish in the areas where I wanted a worn appearance. Starting in sections, I brushed on the Clear Wax first before it could dry I brushed on the Aging Wax Dark. After 15 min. or so I wiped it off with a lint free cloth.
The next day I buffed the wax. I used a scotch pad (scrubber thingy) and it really started to shine. Then I used a lint free cloth and finished buffing.
I loved the base of the table but the top did not meet my expectations. So after many days of thought..... I taped off the table and spray painted it a glossy black.
Warning! BAD IDEA! Do not spray paint over chalk paint!
