I ran out of store-bought chalk paint and so I followed the DIY chalk paint recipes I found on the Internet and made my own using white grout. It was rougher than the bought chalk paint, but worked just as well. I painted the bookshelf backs in a lovely dusty blue. Waxed and buffed, it was all done in 2 days.
And here’s the after:While my kids were away, I sorted and repacked the books. Despite my hubby’s initial comments that everything looked too white while I was still painting, the completed schoolroom looks delightfully fresh and light!
Painting with chalk paint is as easy as all the online tutorials say it is. Quick and delightfully textured, the results were lovely! I love it!
