I haven't tried the DIY Chalk Paint Technique yet. To gather more information, I did a search and found the blog: A Vintage Green. Joy's post, Many Ways with Chalk Paint offers fifteeen links to bloggers who have experimented with DIY Chalk Paint.
I love what Deborah, host of Upcycling My Very Ordinary Life, did with her table (shown above). She even added an image after painting the table.
Check these links out. Lots of good ideas to explore. Now, I'm on the hunt for some old furniture.
