Hey, guys! In this video I share the basics of how to chalk paint furniture in a rustic, farmhouse style. This gives you the perfect opportunity to thrift furniture with solid bones and make is fit the esthetic of your home. I LOVE the show fixer upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines and have been really gravitating toward farmhouse and distressed home decor. Whether you are painting a dresser, coffee table, chairs, stools, cabinets and more–this is SUCH an easy project. If you haven’t worked with chalk paint before, here is exactly how to apply chalk paint with an easy to follow tutorial. My favorite part? You can do it in ONE day and NO standing required. Even on previously stained or finished wood. I hope you enjoy!
SUPPLIES IN THIS VIDEO:
Chalk Paint: I used Valspar color “Kid Gloves” from Lowes. You can also use Annie Sloan and Plaid in the colors of your choice. All great! Here’s the Parisian Grey color
Chalk Paint Brushes
Water-Based Polyurethane Finish (also know as polycrylic)
Note: you’ll notice the Poly linked above is not the can you see in the video, it’s only because I was using up what I already had from another project but it’s the same thing–Rust-o-leum’s Varnathane. It’s the finish you want with chalk paint! Especially if your piece is ivory or white, it won’t yellow. Amazing staying power on high traffic pieces!
