I know, I know, it's been a while since I've written anything.
I have a good excuse – if you are on my mailing list and you've read my past two emails, you know what I'm up to!
To make up for it, I'm going to share some of my research with you – It will save you some time if you are a DIY painter.
I spent a couple of hours researching chalky paint recipes and put together a one page PDF that you can reference if you are interested in making your own chalky paint.

That's what happens when you've fooled your kids into thinking you are the expert in the room.
