Chalk paint is really nice because of how thick the consistency is and it’s durability. You don’t have to sand or prime. Just 2 layers of chalk paint and top it off with a top coat and you’re done!
There are tons of different chalk paints on the market. The ones I’m using in this video are found at a vintage shop I visited recently in Fairfield, CA “Pieces of Time Too.” Some other popular, reputable brands are CeCe Caldwell and Annie Sloan. These are slightly more expensive than the paint I’m using here.

For the VAX, I’m not sure if other brands carry something like this. Usually people use a wax as a top coat. I heard that wax needs to be reapplied twice a year, but VAX does not need to be. As far as which one is really better, I’m not sure because this is my first time experimenting! 🙂
FYI: I’m not affiliated with this store in any way. I just happened to find them on Yelp when I was hunting for vintage furniture. They have no idea I even made a video using their products.
My dresser was found at a vintage shop called ‘Mignonne Decor’ in Berkeley, CA.
