Why I didn't use Chalk Paint...
First of all, I definitely would've used ASCP if it weren't for a few things about my kitchen...
Number one...I wanted a pure white cabinet and ASCP currently does not have a bright white available in the US. My husband was out of town, things were a little slower at Lucketts and I had a True Value gift card burning a hole in my pocket, so I went with an oilbased paint (Satin Impervo in White C235 01 by Benjamin Moore.)
Second...My cabinet doors have bead board inserts, which look awesome, but would be an absolute nightmare to apply 2-3 coats of wax to all fifty-one of them.ASCP would've saved me the priming step, but would've added the waxing steps, which would've been very labor intensive for my style of cabinet.
The last reason I chose to work with oil based paint is that I didn't want to distress them. While you don't have to distress ASCP all the time, I feel that distressing brings out the best in ASCP.
I didn't doubt the durability of ASCP or how beautiful it would look, it just wasn't the right paint for this specificproject. If you're painting your cabinets and are interested in using ASCP, it's a great option. I hope that cleared it up! There are many products and paints I like working with and I think there is a place for all of them.I'm planning to write a post soon about my favorites and how I put them to work.
Speaking of paints I love, John Millen Hardware's Milk Paint and Wax Giveaway is running through Sunday, so make sure you leave a comment to enter if you haven't already!
