new chalk paint...

I just tried the Americana Chalky paint, I love it!
redid this farmhouse table and vintage Windsor chairs...

the chairs and legs are done in Carbon, I love how it is a true black!
the top was sanded and stained...
I know you can get this chalk paint at Micheal's, Home Depot and online at Walmart

I have had some questions on the comes in a 8 ounce sample and in a 16 ounce can
the 16 oz is $15.95, but this paint is thicker and richer, so it goes so much further...
and I like having a larger color choice
I used a sample size and did a vintage desk, front and back with it...
I will share that this week

  1. Thanks for sharing this, I've never heard of this paint. Is it a substitute for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint? If so I hope it's less expensive lol. Your table looks gorgeous. xoKathleen

  2. Thanks for sharing this. Maybe it isn't as cost prohibitive as some of the chalk paint. I'll check it out!

  3. The table looks great -- I've not heard of this brand. I've used A.S. and love it and I also just did a bunch of pieces with a homemade chalk paint that I really liked too. How do you think this compares to Annie's?

  4. WOW! Great job!! Looks awesome

  5. That is one chalk paint brand I haven't tried yet. It sounds like a little goes a long way and that it is readily available. Your farmhouse table is very pretty and I like that this paint comes in a true black. You've peaked my interest!

  6. I sure didn't know you can get chalk paint at Michaels, only the black I bet? chalkboard paint?
    I have always wanted to try a lighter color chalk paint on something
    the table and the windsor chairs looks real good, I love windsor chairs
    Just wanted to say Hi


  7. Looks great! I can't wait to try this paint. I've just used Annie Sloan. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  8. Can't even say how much I like the ironstone on that table! The table is great. The whole room is great, but nothing steals my heart like ironstone.

  9. What a beautiful table! I love the black! Thanks for linking with Home Sweet Home!

  10. I've tried this paint and like it very much. I got mine at home depot
