Today's post is one I've been thinking about doing for quite a while now and it's a comparison between the Annie Sloan chalk paint vs the Rust_Oleum chalked paint. Now you guys know I've been a big fan of the Annie Sloan chalk paint for a looooong time. I've been using it for about six years now and I even wrote a post about my top ten chalk painting tips, which you can check out here if you're interested. It's actually what led me to fall in love with painting furniture in the first place. But recently I've been growing more curious about some of the alternatives that are popping up on the market, like the Rust_Oleum chalked paint. I picked it up at Home Depot about a month ago and I've used it on a few small things here and there. Well this weekend I was in the mood for a little painting fun so I decided to do a side_by_side comparison between these two products. I grabbed an old table that worked perfectly for this little experiment and I got to work. I was actually pretty surprised at some of my observations and I'm excited to share the results with you fine folks today!
