Thoughts After First Coat of Paint _ Both had very similar coverage and went on fairly streaky for this first coat, as you can see. The Rust_Oleum paint claims that a “1_coat coverage allows projects to be completed easily”, but that’s obviously not the case. Both offered decent coverage on the first coat, but both sides definitely needs a second coat as you can see. I noticed right away that the Annie Sloan chalk paint has a much thicker consistency, while the Rust_Oleum paint reminded me of normal latex paint. Between the two, I felt like the Rust_Oleum paint was easier to work with and easier to apply due to the fact that it isn’t as thick. The Annie Sloan paint dries in a a very rough, dry finish while the Rust_Oleum is more of a semi_matte, smooth finish.
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.
