The Scene: it's 7:00 pm. I have 2 kitchen cabinets left to paint. And I'm out of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Oh, The Agony!!
If I could just finish it all tonight.
Oh, what to do? What to do??
Wait . . . A thought . . .
You can thin down thick Annie Sloan Chalk Paint with water right?? Well, I have lots of dried Chalk Paint on my tarp . . .
What if . . .
Hum, would it work???
Well Let's see . . .
Scoop it up!
Uh--BTW a clean brush works better for this . . .
Add some WARM WATER--
Next time I need this trick I'll use warmer water--you know that whole heat being a catalyst of change thing from 10th grade Chemistry?
Oh, doesn't this photo look so candid?? NOT AT ALL like my mom told me to stand and look thoughtful and hold the can with my right hand so you can see the label . . . oh no.
Have you ever tried to spatula with your left hand when your right handed (or visa verse)?? Not easy.
Blend on high for about . . . oh a long time.
Voila!! I got her done! The reconsituted paint was very gritty, but I was able to sand this away with some 320 Grit sandpaper. Definitely a nice little trick in a tight spot!!
Thanks for Stopping by!!
