Chalk paint and mineral paint are both popular choices for furniture upcycling projects, but they have some key differences.
Chalk paint is a type of paint that has a matte, chalky finish. It's often used for shabby chic or vintage-style furniture, it’s also very forgiving, as it can be easily distressed or sanded to create a weathered look.
Mineral paint, on the other hand, is a newer type of paint that's gaining popularity among upcyclers. It's made from natural minerals and has a more durable finish than chalk paint. Mineral paint is also VOC-free, which means it's better for the environment and your health. It's available in a wide range of codours and can be used on almost any surface, including metal and glass.
One of the biggest differences between chalk paint and mineral paint is the finish. Chalk paint has a matte, chalky finish, while mineral paint has a more durable, satin finish. Chalk paint is also more forgiving and easier to distress, while mineral paint is better for high-traffic areas and outdoor furniture.
Overall, both chalk paint and mineral paint have their pros and cons, and the choice between the two will depend on your specific project, style of finish and preferences.
