Chalk and Sand Painting

House Interior Painting
The wall, door and windowsill colours are part of the indoor painting décor. The internal furnishings, along with fixed structured like fireplaces and banisters, are also part of this, and the various colours must work together in a coherent way. Yet there is a great scope for variation here.
Internal furnishings can be painted in a variety of ways. This is popular for those who like a rustic look, or even pastel and sparse looks. Wooden furniture can be painted darker colours for an old fashion appeal, or light shades for a modern and light look. The appearance of the furniture can be further modifier by distressing the finish – adding artificial signs of age. 
Chalk Paint
Chalk paint has a calcium additive in it that gives a very pleasant finish that is smooth without being shiny. It literally has a chalky texture. And this is an excellent option for many old type of furniture, or even for making new furniture look old.
Sand Paint 
This is like chalk paint but with a rougher texture.  

Products from Commercial Painters
Chalk paint is available commercially. But it is also possible to make your own version by adding a slightly rough material to latex paint.
  1. Mix 2-1/2 tablespoons of plaster of Paris with 1-1/2 tablespoons of water. Add this to 1 cup of latex paint.
  2. Mix ½ cup of baking soda with 3 tablespoons of water. Add this to 1 cup of latex paint.
  3. Mix 2 tablespoons of unsanded tile grout with 1 tablespoons of cool water. Add this to 1 cup of latex paint
Often this paint can applied to a wood surface without primer, though we recommend light sanding and cleaning to remove oil and grease.
