Many Ways of Chalk Paint

This is for Claudia especially. This list is only current to the date (today) and I know there are hundreds of bloggers making their own chalk paint. As always these are only examples of other bloggers experiences and not any particular recommendations.

No Minimalist Here: Make Your Own Chalk Paint

Life Hacker (chalkboard paint)
Larissa Hill Designs (used sanded grout)

Spray painting ASCP by Dawn Cain and a combo of ASCP and Plaster of Paris/Paint for a 'rebel flag/coffee table remake.

A post by Tina on her blog Stitching in Texas first time using ASCP

A post by Deborah on her blog Upcycling My (ordinary) Life. She used calcium carbonate with latex and describes 'how' and shows the results.

A post by Shannon on her blog DoveNest with her first try with chalk paint, using ASCP Provence Blue.

Pumpkin Pie Painter wrote a post on how far a can of ASCP can go. Amazing.

Crushed up chalk (from sticks) and oops paint - and a painted curb free dresser - I am impressed with The Vintage Farmhouse.

Kammy's Korner has a terrific post on making her own chalkboard paint using plaster of paris and black paint.

Debroah Upcycling My (ordinary) Life made her own chalk paint with calcium carbonate and latex paint to renew a beautiful corner china cabinet.

For The Love of White made her chalk paint with plaster of paris mixed with paint, nice example on this page.

The Ladybugs Garden, Stephanie, has been making and posting on her chalk paint.

  1. Thank you so much, Joy! I am going to visit each link.


  2. Thanks for including my 'recipe' Joy! My homemade chalk paint using baking soda was out of necessity - the necessity of not waiting for a shipment of the real thing and the necessity of using up some of my leftover paint :) -Jill


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
