Faux brick wall Brick paneling from Lowes Covered with white chalk paint (recipe below) to cover the black grout. Paint the grout and blend it the bricks. Allow to dry and wash off bricks. Chalk paint recipe 1 cup of white paint (acrylic craft paint or flat interior paint) 1 tbsp plaster of Paris powder 2 tbsp water. I made 4 cups and have a lot left for my next project.
My $15 thrift store pine coffee table, chalk painted and lightly glazed. For the top, I first tried to stain it using a vinegar/steel wool stain, but it came out blotchy and not to my liking. So I changed course and dry brushed several layers of thinned off white chalk paint. Glazed it again lightly, then applied two coats of water based poly finish. Now it looks a lot like driftwood.
