What Houzz contributors are saying:
Chalk paint: Annie Sloan chalk paint is a popular line that requires no primer and little to no sanding before painting, depending on the condition of the surface. The finish you’ll achieve with this paint is consistent, with less flaking and chipping than milk paint. Wax can be applied as an alternative to sealer, in clear or antique, depending on the look desired.
Painting wooden furniture, whether it's a piece you've had for ages or one you scooped up at the flea market, is a satisfying and fairly easy DIY project. For a creative twist, try tinted chalkboard paint, natural milk paint or tints of a single color to make ombré stripes.
