One thing does lead to another!

For those of you who read  Miss Mustard seeds blog, you have seen recently her bragging on this chalk paint.
She is so good at painting furniture and I thought to myself if she likes it, and it was that easy to use,
that has my name on it!
Why not take a risk?
I will be joining the Nester for her take a risk day...wait til you see the end result...please do come back and see.
Well, let me tell you, I am in some SERIOUS love here.
Not lust, we are talking LOVE, true love.
Sure wish I was getting paid to brag like this, but I'm not!~
I ordered this paint just a couple of days ago, and today it arrived.
I thought I would test it out on a night stand in the guest room.
Did I mention I did not prime or sand?
No need to with this paint.
I wasted no time to get started.
Seeing I am working on the master, I may as well give the guest room a perk me up too.

 Of course it is still in the process of drying, but boy does it dry fast. 
No drip, clean up was a breeze. I can't wait to distress the piece.  I will say for this little quart it was 35.00, and I bought the set of three brushes.
Oh and I did NOT buy the book. If you know me, I don't follow instructions anyhow.
This paint goes a LONG way, 
I barely put a dent in the can and I did two coats on this piece!
I am so excited to get busy painting more.  
Here goes another room transformation!
Oh and if you are interested in learning more about the paint here is the website

Blue chalkboard paint? Wow, I thought it was always black or grey! How cool that is! Do you follow Lola B's blog? She has a gorgeous home and she painted an entire wall under her stairway with chalkboard paint.

I am way to cheeep! I thought cool I will try it, but at $35 a can and $10 for shipping, it was just tooo rich for my taste!! I am so tempted though! It sure would be neat not to have to use a primer and I guess it sands really well.....I am thinking about it!

Great color! I just ordered 2 cans and can't wait until it gets here. Not having to prime, sand, etc., really inspires me. I may be painting everything in sight. :-)

I read this post yesterday and got side tracked before commenting... I had to go research this caulk paint... clearly it is not the same as caulk board paint (which I thought it was and apparently it isnt). I would love to try it. I am working on something now, I think for my next project I will give it a try! You a Miss Mustard Seed have me sold!

Oooo, this is great. I have been reading about this paint ever since I saw it at Miss Mustard Seeds. I want to do my kitchen cupboards in it! Glad to see how far is goes: definitely worth it in my opinion. And the colors are fantastic. What color was this? Did you get the wax that goes with it, too? I just can't decide on a color yet. Thanks for showing us this, and I'm happy about how fast it came, too. Of course, if I wait too long, it may be all ordered up!! :S

Do you love the finished piece? Did you put a clear coat or protective coating on after this? I wonder if the chalk paint makes the furniture have a chalkboard texture? I want to do this with furniture but I'm not sure if I'll like the feel of it.
