So The Beast From The East is upon us! It’s hard enough being a Furniture Whisperer through the winter months without these conditions. The way I get around working outside is to paint small items so I can do them in my kitchen. Of course I cant move all my materials inside so when I went into my shed yesterday for my Rustoleum Chalk White paint I was amazed to find out that it had frozen.
I asked my fellow painters on a fabulous Facebook Page called Essentially Shabby and it was suggested to let it thaw out naturally and everything should be fine. Luckily I had another new tin of the same colour to use whilst this one was thawing out, and after a couple of hours near the kitchen radiator and a thoroughly good stir the paint was back to normal.
So thats a lesson learned for future icy blasts, if chalk paint freezes all is not lost because it will thaw out and can be used as normal.
