Last week I finally found the time to do a half & half table to show the difference just one coat of Plaster Paint makes.

Plaster Paint requires no sanding or stripping.  All I did before painting this table was to wipe it down with a damp rag.  Here's a better shot of the top of the table.

Definitely in need of some love.  And here is the other side with one coat of paint.  Isn't it amazing how well it covers those cup rings, cracks & stains?!

My goal was to put it on lighter in area's to give it an aged appearance.  I used a 1" chip brush to put on my mixed base coat.  Once that was dry I used painters tape to create a grain sack style stripe. Then I used a clean 1" chip brush to apply Old Red and simply pulled off my tape before it was completely dry.

I mixed my paint because I didn't want a white and I didn't want toasted marshmallow so I just mixed them to create my own color & it turned out exactly how I wanted.

I did a quick pass or two with fine steel wool to make the top super smooth and then added a coat of paste wax to seal it.  This entire project literally took less than an hour if you count dry time.  Of course I only did half the table but you get the idea...this paint is super easy to use.

Plaster Paint is an affordable choice whether your a novice or a veteran painter.  We've been building/painting signs for a few years and all we use on our backgrounds is Plaster Paint because we love the finish that much.

Check out all the fabulous colors it has to offer.

Interested in trying it out for yourself?  Prices:  Quart $24, Pint $17 sample 8oz. $12 and a sample 4oz. is $8.  

To give you an idea how far it goes we painted the background on this sign in Irish Clover and didn't even use 1/2 of a sample 4oz.
