Chalk Paint on my Bathroom Cabinets

About 8 years ago, I textured, painted, and tea stained my bathroom cabinets.
It's been chipping for the past few years, driving me nuts...
So I decided to tackle this "small" project...
I hand scraped (for 2 days) the texture off, and then sanded
(what a MESS)
During

I used this chalk paint recipe I had pinned...
Using Basil paint I already had (my family room is this color) and Plaster of Paris.
Let's just say chalk paint is super rough feeling. I used 320 grit sand paper to smooth it some and buffed Minwax Paste Finishing Wax on to seal it...
I am very pleased with the end result and would definitely use the chalk paint technique again.

They look really nice! I am not familiar with chalk paint. What is the benefit? Asthetics? Texture? Price? Just curious.

Looking good my friend! Feels awesome to accomplish something like that, doesn't it?

Earlier today when I was checking something on Pinterest, it had you listed twice as someone I was following. So I deleted one of them. Must have been n error on their end because when I just went back, I wasn't following you at all. 8-/. I am again. Gee-sh!
