Oh wow!! Never want to do this again!! Check out this... I was told that with chalk paint, you do not have to rough up the laminate before painting. That you can paint ANYTHING. Well, not so. This is what happened when I painted the laminate without roughing it up. I tried to paint a 2nd coat and it started to take up the paint. I took a cloth to it and it all just started coming up like nothing at all. Dixie Belle paint in Bunker Hill Blue. The black was Dixie Belle's Midnight Sky.

Dixie Belle chalk paint in Midnight Sky. I did two coats and then distressed on the edges. I used a black wax (Annie Sloan) and loved the matte look of it. I was told that on a chair it would be better to use a polyacrylic so I then put on a matte polyacrylic. I was not as happy with the finish. Kind of wish I had left it with just the black wax. Live and learn. I will use only the wax to finish the next one. It did come out nice though. What a difference! Dixie Belle paint is a local Florida company. Supporting the Local business!!
