If you follow my blog, you know that I love using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan to transform furniture. I was hooked from the first brush stroke!
Recently, someone asked me what my favorite Chalk Paint® color was. Honestly, I can’t say I have a favorite color. I love so many of them – as my husband would be more than willing to tell you from all the paint cans in our basement!
The fact that the paint colors can be mixed so easily just makes me love it that much more. And makes me possibly even more addicted to painting. But that’s another subject. For another time!
Like I said, mixing the paint is so easy to do. I usually use cotton swabs and/or plastic spoons, but you can even use your fingertips! No fancy supplies required!
I like to mix my paints on a sturdy paper plate. I keep a pen handy so that I can write down the formulas on the plate as I’m mixing them. That way I’ll remember how to recreate the colors later on.
Make sure to let your samples completely dry to get a better sense of what they will look like when you use them on furniture.

Here are some of my favorite mixes from around the web…with a couple of my own favorites thrown in, too!
