Homemade Gift + My First Chalk Paint Experience

chalk paint houses

I've been hearing about the awesomeness of chalk paint everywhere and I finally decided to give it a try. My husband has a ton of treated lumber scraps and I wanted to see how chalk paint would work on them. I made a treated lumber scrap village because #outofideas. I painted the lumber with chalk paint and then used a paint pen to draw on the windows and doors. The chalk paint actually worked pretty good. It covered the lumber in just one coat. I did notice that it took forever to dry, but that could have been my own user error. I used this as a test for more chalk painting to come and I was pretty happy with the results. FYI, I used this brand of chalk paint, but I recently bought some other brands as well and can't wait to try them out.
