Thoughts After Two Coats of Paint _ Both sides dried completely in about 20 minutes and were ready for the second coat. I found the second coat of Annie Sloan paint a little harder to apply compared to the Rust_Oleum paint. I think the difference was largely due to the fact that I was painting on such a dry, matte surface from that first coat. The second coat seemed to cake up for me a bit, which I have experienced in the past with Annie Sloan paint. If you look closely you can see how it caked up in the top photo above. Since the Rust_Oleum paint dried in a more semi_matte, smooth finish I found it a lot easier to apply the second coat. The Annie Sloan paint seemed to offer a bit more coverage on the second coat. Both covered the damage/scuffs on the table really well. I was able to easily distress each with sandpaper for a vintage look.
Chalk Paint Ideas _ You can get a lot of different looks using chalk paint, ranging from a more distressed, "shabby chic" finish, to a more modern approach that just covers the surface with a solid, opaque coat of paint. Becky, from Homestead 128, painted her piano a deep graphite grey, followed up with some furniture wax from Miss Mustard Seed. The entire project cost about โ, and took her around two hours to complete.
