Tips:

  • Mixing the chalk paint in plastic paint pails/buckets allows for a small quantity of paint without a lot of waste. Do not store chalk paint for reuse. Mix the quantity of paint you think you will use.
  • If you wish to have a more chalky feel in your project, you can add more chalk powder and water mixture up to 1/3 cup of chalk powder and 1/3 cup water to one cup or 8 oz of Olde Century Colors paint. Try this recipe after you have experimented with the original formula. Work your way up to what you are looking for.
  • Once you have determined what works best for you, write down the proportion formula and you are on your way to a successful project.
  • Test boards are highly recommended.
  • Follow all of the precautions on the label of the Olde Century Colors Chalk Powder.

Classic Black and White

This classic black and white dining room was created by Laura Hardin, Intrigue Interiors in High Point, NC via Houzz.

Classic Black and White

If you have a large piece of furniture, don’t be afraid to paint it black.  If you like, age the piece by rubbing through some of the paint to shown “worn” areas.  An application of Briwax over the paint will give you a lovely sheen and protection for the paint.

The neutral wood tones of the dining table and chairs are a lovely addition to the stark colors of the classic black and white.

Using Black on Your Walls

Ever think of using black paint on your walls?  Not many people do, but maybe we should.  Let this article from Houzz inspired some more thought on the subject:

Black is the color of the night sky, ebony, caviar and coal. It was one of the first colors ever used in human art. It’s classic, deep, simple and elegant. It is also associated with death, fear, mourning and evil.

But whatever your associations — from witches to fashion — black is a serious color. As Henri Matisse said, “Black is a force.” And using it in decor is a statement unto itself. It’s confident and self-assured. It’s chic and mysterious. But most of all, black is beautiful.

Read the remainder of the article:  Color Guide:  How to Work With Black.

Black on walls

Olde Century Colors has a Lamp Black in Acrylic Latex Paint and Carriable Black in Simulated Milk Colors paints.  Either would be perfect for any room.  If you want to go really, really dark but not quite black, take a look at these colors:  Greenbrier, Olde Navy, Dark Hunter Green, Candleberry Green and Salt Box Blue.

Paint and Painting Tips

Painted Cabinet 3

Both Olde Century Colors Acrylic Latex paint and the Simulated Milk Paints are soap and water clean-up.

Both paints can be used as a wash by cutting the paint with water.  Additional coats will give more depth of color.

Acrylic Latex paints are quick drying, low odor, and non-yellowing.  The finish is tough and very washable.

Simulated Milk Paints may be intermixed to achieve any color you desire.  White to lighten.  Black to darken.  You’ll be creating your own custom color!

Remember that all surfaces must be clean, dry and dull prior to painting!

Make sure that your paint has cured prior to applying Briwax over the paint.
