DIY Chalk Paint

How are you? How has your summer been? I hope
good. Mine hasn't been what I planned but it has been pretty good. Looking back on the past several posts, I notice I had all these things I wanted to accomplish for 2016. Funny haha! Dontcha hate it when you say you want to do something and then you don't or you can't?! I haven't been able to keep up with things this summer so really I'm trying to do a speedy catch up on all my projects now in the month of August, just before school starts back.   
Woohoo! So has anyone used chalk paint before? Do you like chalk paint? I've concocted my own before, mixing plaster of paris in with a can of latex, and this time I've used a different powder with latex. I'll tell you all about it after I'm finished. I normally don't post pictures of incomplete projects on the internet but this is a work in process and I'm not sure how long it will take really. I'm trying to be very patient and take my time. Sometimes I rush through painting projects to the point I'm not crazy about the result. Hoping to get it right this time. So far I've completed painting the exterior of this cabinet, including the inside and outside of the door. Next I'm going to sand and wax it up baby! I'm looking forward to sharing this after I'm finished. If anyone has any advice on the waxing process, I'd love to hear it! Happy Monday!
