Chalk paint is so expensive but you can make your own cheap and easily.
It has a rich, creamy, vintage look to it and is actually a bit more durable than regular latex paint.
It quickly gives your surface an aged, matte look that is easily distressed.
You will need:
1 cup Acrylic Latex paint
1/3 cup Plaster of Paris
small amount of water
wide mouth jar
