    Default Chalk paint.... Where?

    Hey ladies, I have a few pieces of furniture I would love to paint, preferably in the shabby chic style and have come Across chalk paint!
    But where do I get it? I'm in Adelaide, or should I just make it Myself!?

    I found it the cheapest on EBay and you can choose from heaps of different colours!

    Otherwise Bunnings has some but I only found black and green in there.

    Pinterest has a bunch of chalkboard paint recipes, if you're familiar with the app/website

    We paid I think $13 + postage from eBay and it was around $30 in Bunnings.

    Sorry, everyone is talking about chalk board paint, but I presumed you meant milk chalk paint?

    If you meant milk chalk paint, we got ours from Porters Paints and I'm not aware of anyone else who does them. Just be aware it can be really difficult to work with - it's very labour intense, not as simple as whacking on a coat of enamel!

    You can get chalk paint - not chalk board paint - from Office Works. I saw it there while getting school supplies the other day.

    Oh - it seems you're talking about painting furniture with it... so that's not what Office Works sells... they sell the stuff that sign writers use. :P
