Webster’s Review

Hi lovelies!  I’m really {REALLY} excited to share my newest piece with you.  A few weeks ago, I received a few sample packs of Websters Chalk Paint Powder.  I’ve been wanting to try it for some time but haven’t found the time to mosey an hour down the road to purchase it.  Well, that’ll change after the fantastic results I had.  See for yourself…

Love it!  Websters Chalk Paint Powder is a powder that can be added to any latex paint.  When added, it gives latex paint super bonding powers which mean less work for you {i.e. no sanding or priming…woohoo}!  The best part is that it takes a very small amount, only 2 tbsp per cup of paint.  While a cup of paint may not sound like much, it’s all it took to refinish this beauty.

Here’s the before…

I simply mixed 2 tbsp of Websters Chalk Paint Powder with 1 tbsp of water.  I noticed immediately that the powder dissolves super fast.

I then mixed in 1 cup of Sherwin Williams Lattice {satin finish} and stirred.  Again, it mixed very easily and quickly.  The coverage was great and the dry time and finish are comparable to other specialty paints on the market.  To achieve this finish, I applied two very thin coats, sanded and sealed with clear wax.

I was very pleased with the product and will definitely use it again.  If you follow my blog then you know that I use all types and brands of paint and will continue to do so.  I truly feel there is room in this market for everyone and there is a perfect piece for every type of paint!  You can find a Websters Chalk Paint Powder retailer on their website.  Have you tried Websters yet?

  3. Cindy, the cabinet is beautiful! I found Webster's chalk paint powder about 6 months ago just searching on-line. I'm in California and there aren't any dealers for Websters close to me either. I have to say it was a great find! The first piece I used it on was a maple coffee table. It mixed into the sample can of Benjamin Moore I had on hand and it came out so nice no finish was needed (wax or poly). I enjoying reading your blog and appreciate that you use several different paints and techniques! Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Oh, I love Webster's chalk paint powder. I used it on 3 pieces and could not be more proud of the results. One piece I did is the same color as the piece you have shown here. It is expensive, but worth the cost for sure! Great post!

  5. I love that powder! Bought some a while back and changed several sample color pots into chalk paint to use on my Goodwill decor item finds. It works great and the mix can be stored for weeks.

  6. That is a beautiful piece of furniture! I love how you made all the details really stand out. I've not tried chalk paint yet, but I have a hutch I need to do so I might try it on that. Nice job!

    It looks like you also used dark wax. Is that just the original color showing through because you used a thin coat of paint?
