DIY Chalk Paint with Minwax Stain

Okay, as you can see, I’m still on my Chalk Paint kick. My hubby is out of town this week so I was able to knock this dresser out in two days! I just used green and white acrylic paint mixed with my Plaster of Paris Chalk Paint recipe. (2 tbs of PoP, 2tbs of water to 1 cup of paint) I also used a Minwax Kona stain after I applied one coat of clear Minwax to give it a darker, worn appearance. Here is this finished look.

  1. I know this is an old post, but maybe you’ll see this 🙂

    When you say you used a coat of clear Minwax, do you mean a polyurethane?

    Thanks!
