I've been a slacker blogger lately but I've been crazy busy doing furniture. I'm going to start trying to get caught up! So check back tomorrow, and the next day, and the next!
Here's a favorite that I just finished today. Isn't the color amazing?
This is a really easy finish! After doing some patching I recoated the whole thing in black. Then I sprayed one light coat of gray. Using 150 grit sandpaper, I hand sanded in the direction of the woodgrain. And, last of all, I coated it with lacquer. Pretty dang easy, huh?!
I think this would work really well using chalk paint. The stuff I use is called lacquer undercoat, and it's more like a primer than paint. I would experiment a little with your paint to make sure it sands away in a nice smooth finish.
