Winner of Milk Paint & You will LOVE this!

Yesterday I was browsing through some linky parties, and this title caught my eye

Make Your Own Chalk Paint For $4.00 

You guys know how I have struggled with promoting ASCP, when it is so stinking expensive, so this was intriguing!

One of my awesome readers, Carla, has been experimenting with different formulas of home-made chalk paint and I sent the link to her last night. I knew this would be right up her alley too….

Wanna’ see this awesome blogher’s post?

Yes, she did that vanity with her $4.00 chalk paint….(I wish I had that vanity….isn’t it gorgeous?! But then, if I had a vanity that fancy, I would have to wear make-up more and if I had to wear make-up more, then I would have to cleanse my face more, and if I had to cleanse my face more… get the picture…I’m lazy.)

Bet you wish I would hurry and give you her link, don’t you?

Ok…my impatient little readers….here you go. Comment on her post and show her some love and tell her YouAreTalkingTooMuch sent you. (Then she will love me)

GENIUS! Can’t wait to try it! Let me know if you do and what you think. I’m worried about chipping and flaking after it sits for a bit. Let me know what you find out, if you try it first!

NOW…..onto the milk paint giveaway!

Random Generator picked:


K – so I’m a reader and admirer but not so much for crafty stuff – love to do it but pressed for time between garden and physio and life in general… but I did go yard saleing and because of your blog bought up some tablecloths and doilies with cushions and little girls dresses in mind.  And I bought a bugly  item as well with your chalk paint in mind…. So yes, please enter me for the goody goods!  And I promise to send pics of the results 😉

Send me your address! Email me at and I will send it out!

One last thing……

You won’t believe what I got off of Craigslist.

Can you tell from this peek what this is?

    Hi!  Can’t tell what that is other than its gorgeous! Love the vanity. Congrats to Anita on winning the milk paint, how cool!

    I’m trying to find out how much per piece the ASCP is, its so expensive but you do get a lot of pieces from a quart. Have you decided?? I bought 3 quarts and have used about 1/3 of each quart…so I think I’ve used 1 whole quart altogether. I’ve painted 6-8 end tables, a sofa table, 3-4 large sconces, lots of picture frames, paper towel holder, a small shelf and a few other odds and ends. You do get a lot out of a can…so is it cost effective? Maybe?? I can’t decide!   If I read the post about the $4. milk paint correctly she made enough for just the vanity. If so how much would it cost to paint the above mentioned pieces? Gets confusing, huh? Have you figured out how many pieces you get out of a quart of ASCP? Hopefully…please:)…since you now have milk paintyou’ll being doing some comparisons.
    Enquerring (how on earth do you spell that? 🙂 minds want to know!!

    PS… LOVE your blog!!!!

    I already love you, Rebecca!   Thank you so much for the post and the link.  No chipping  or flaking on the pieces I painted using these formulas.  I can’t even scrape the paint off now with my fingernails.  Congrats to Anita and thanks again.

    I could hardly wait to get home and try out the recipe; luckily I already had plaster of paris on hand.  My test piece is drying as we speak, and I can already tell that I am going to be downright dangerous armed with this knowledge! It looks like it will need another coat, so hopefully I can post pictures tomorrow night.  Just for kicks I also tested some on a crappity laminate shelf I’m re-doing for my daughter and it looks like it’s gonna stick!
