I had big plans to wow you with some other pieces I have in the works with the new paint that I really like but plans have changed.
The paint is still awesome.
Easy to use.
I couldn’t get it in the red that I needed.
So….I felt it was cruel to make you wait any longer.
Which technically I am doing right now. Aren’t I.
I painted four different pieces in the black and thought…what the heck was I waiting for.
So……are you ready?
Where can you get yours you ask?
Want to know how easy it is to get your own?
Go to Lowes.
It’s that easy. Or at your local store that carries Valspar paints.
I saw the label on this can and was intrigued.
Intrigued I tell ya’.
The paint plus primer made me wonder if it would adhere similar to chalk and clay paint on a variety of surfaces.
Plus the SUPER flat paint made me wonder if it would dry quickly and give the flat look of chalk paints.
The fact that it was a latex paint gave me the confidence that it would be a durable paint for re-selling pieces……….
But what intrigued me the most?
The PRICE vs chalk and clay paint.
$12.43 a QUART!!!!!
But $12.43 a quart was still high and I still wasn’t sure if it would be worth it.
So…I tested it.
I think it was.
Does it sand like chalk paint?
It dried like a super flat latex and sanded and distressed easily.
Low odor. No VOC. Some of the advantages of chalk and clay paint.
But not the high price.
Will I still use chalk or clay paint?
When I can pay $12.43 and turn out four dressers for re-sell.
Well, that’s a win in my books on certain colors.
By the way, in case you wondered(some of you asked me)…..this is the black that I used on all four pieces. (I am only showing you three right now)
I tried to get this kind of paint in my “Perfect” Red before I revealed the paint but the bases on this paint could not be tinted this red and would have been “pinky”.
No way Hosea. I LOVE my perfect red. I don’t want no pinky in my red.
It will work for other colors but I wanted to reveal the paint now so that you can test it out yourself with YOUR favorite colors.
Tempted to try it?
Were you ready to jump on the new “fancy shmancy” paint wagon and now a little disappointed?
You know I’m plain ‘ole people!
But I am picky.
And I like it.
And LOVE the price.
I can’t wait to hear what you think.
