Why Is Chalk Paint Popular?

Should I splurge on a chalk paintbrush?

Okay, since we are DIY” ers” I hate spending money. If you plan on only doing a small project then a regular brush is probably fine. However, having the right tools (like this brush) can really make your painting job easier.

A lot of “professional” chalk painters would roll their eyes at people using just a regular brush.  They also may not like making your own version, but we have had a lot of success redoing furniture with DIY chalked paint.

Would I chalk paint an expensive piece of furniture?

Probably not. While I think chalk paint can take on my styles and aesthetics it is best to only paint pieces that you won’t be devastated if it doesn’t work out. We love painting free items we get from Facebook BST, other thrift stores and DIY furniture builds that use cheaper materials.
