(Lucky always likes to hang out with me when I paint!)
If you don’t wax chalk paint, you should use a high grain sandpaper all over it instead. I highly suggest you wear old clothes and take it outside or to the garage to sand. It isn’t that the dust is toxic – it is just a mess (think chalk dust all over yourself and floor). Anyway, if you sand it down with a high grain sandpaper, the paint pretty much folds into itself and becomes nice and smooth. After sanding, take damp paper towels and wipe off all of the dust.

I think it looks great in a brighter white.
I also finished the other caned chair…
and love the way they look against the drum table.
because I can’t believe Christmas is only a week away – yikes! Off to shop 🙂
