Luxury Pet Bed
It was pretty gross, and my daughter was fairly disgusted but I hauled it home. I saw a recipe for DIY Chalk Paint and jumped right in - after another super fun trip to Home Depot.
I bought Turquoise and Pink flat interior paint and Non-Sanded Grout in white. Away we go!!
Recipe: 1 cup flat paint
2 tbsp Non-sanded grout
Water (to desired consistency)
I followed one blogger's recommendation and I added the grout first and then a little water to get it to dissolve a bit and then added the paint. Stir stir stir!!!!!!! An old hand mixer would be great for this.
No sanding or priming needed. This one was flaking ALOT so I did some sanding but not much.
2 coats, then sanded to make it distressed. Followed up with Minwax Paste Finishing Wax. I plan to buy a little cushion instead of the blanket. But I love how it turned out!
