DIY chalk paint. Plaster of Paris, water, and latex paint. Plus vaseline for distressing. No sanding prep necessary!
Make your own chalk paint by using plain interior paint mixed with Plaster of Paris. You can find Plaster of Paris at Home Depot or Lowe's and it's really cheap. All you do is mix 5 tablespoons of Plaster of Paris with 2 cups of paint and 2 tablespoons of water. Just combine ingredients and stir well. It may even be a little lumpy, but that's okay. Once you brush it on, it evens out.
This is so easy and inexpensive to make. It can be distressed or left alone to create a modern just from the factory look. I will never paint furniture without it. It gives every piece a beautiful patina.
