Let's talk plate racks. Yeah, I love them!
I've found it's cheaper to buy vintage ones
and fix them up. This one was just $12.
I bought it at a junk shop in town.
It was gold when I bought it.
I didn't care how bad the finish looked
because I planned to paint it with some
leftover ASCP in Paris Gray.
Ummm, I didn't care for it in gray...
It seemed too pale, especially
for the Fall season coming up.
Then I thought about the Amy Howard
One-Step Paint, which I had
I purchased it in black to paint a piece of
furniture. I really loved the finish on the
sample I saw in the shop selling the paint.
So I painted the plate rack,
and a few other things, to test it out.
The finish seems smoother and more
chalky than the other chalk paints.
While I was at it, I painted the little
chalkboard that the pig holds.
I went back to the store recently and
bought some more of Amy Howard's
paint in both a creamy white and a gray.
The shop owner told me Amy Howard's
paint has been around for decades.
The paint formulas were based on the
paint found on old European furniture.
The opinions expressed here are my own.
I received no compensation...not even
free paint! I just really love this paint.
