Recognized by its soft, matte finish, chalk paint is commonly used to give furniture an aged, distressed look. This popular type of paint was first produced by Annie Sloan, but other companies have developed their own versions, and the world is full of DIY alternatives that save the ำ_per_quart cost of the real deal. Curious to see what all the hype's about? Here's everything you need to know.
Okie dokie. Let’s do this comparison! Here’s the table I used for this project. I chose this one because of its dark finish and the fact that there’s some damage on the top. I wanted to see how well these paints would cover the scuffs and markings. I used the Annie Sloan paint in Old White and the Rust_Oleum paint in Linen White. I applied both with a regular paint brush.
