This armoire was given to me but was a painted mess. I wanted to re-paint using chalk paint so I wouldn't have to sand of the different types of paint that was on it. I didn't want to spend the doll hairs on Sloan Chalk paint so I decided to try the recipe Diane Henkler posted on Pinterest ( http://inmyownstyle.com/2013/02/diy-chalk-paint-review-update.html ) using Calcium Carbonate. Worked great and turned out beautiful. I used some blue paint I already had and some tea stain (Ralph Lauren). The chalk paint was easy to work with. The final pictures really don't do it justice.
