I know, I’ve been telling you and telling you about the chalk paint recipes that I tried out. So here it is and I’ll just call it part one because I’m certainly not done yet.
Here is the story:
I used to not be a fan of chalk paint but then you start seeing it all over blogland, Pinterest and Primitive & Propper (LOL) and you start to wonder: “What is up with it and why do people like it so much?”
So I wanted to try it too. Especially since there are certain pieces of furniture that I couldn’t imagine with a lacquer or spray painted finish and when you have and Etsy store like myself, then I at least can try to have a little somethin’ somethin’ for everyone (it’s almost empty now though). For me that’s fun! Maybe it is because I have a split decorating personality. There are so many things I like and that I’m interested in and I can’t have them all in our tiny house. So it is fun to do it for other people.
I don’t know if you read along for my first chalk paint dresser makeover a couple of weeks ago, which I painted with CeCe Caldwell’s Destin Golf Green chalk paint (click HERE if you missed it). That started it all!

And then I also painted this dresser with the leftover paint and the hex sign knob details that I showed you last week (click HERE to read more about it):
“Non-Sanded Grout” recipe:
I tried it out on my dresser that I wrote about in my last post (click HERE to see more).
DIY Chalk Paint Recipe using Calcium Carbonate Powder:

I really liked this recipe. It’s smooth, good to sand and the wax goes on great as well.
And don’t forget to buff the wax at the end!
For the gold detail on the dresser I used Rub ‘n Buff that I thinned out with paint thinner and then brushed on.
I hope you weren’t expecting a ground braking DIY recipe already because I don’t have it (yet, haha).
And if chalk paint isn’t your thing but you want a similar color to my dresser then check out THIS very similar shade of pink. It’s so pretty!
