DIY: Furniture Makeover w/ Chalk Paint! | ilikeweylie

Hello hello! Do you have an old piece of furniture that needs updating, or you see items at flea markets that you want to up cycle, OR you just want to save money but still have cute furniture? In this video, I show you how to use chalk paint to turn something boring into chic! THUMBS UP for more DIYs!

Share this with your friends on FB!
Or if you’re a twitter ya go 🙂

BTW, uploading a day early, so there will be no Monday video. This is it!

Check out Lauren (LaurDIY) video here:

Chalk paint is really nice because of how thick the consistency is and it’s durability. You don’t have to sand or prime. Just 2 layers of chalk paint and top it off with a top coat and you’re done!

There are tons of different chalk paints on the market. The ones I’m using in this video are found at a vintage shop I visited recently in Fairfield, CA “Pieces of Time Too.” Some other popular, reputable brands are CeCe Caldwell and Annie Sloan. These are slightly more expensive than the paint I’m using here.

Vintage shop I found the chalk paint at:

Products Used:
Purdy Nylon Paint Brush:
Shabby Paints ‘Alamo White’:
Shabby Paints Sheer VAX:
Shabby Paints VAX Sponge:

For the VAX, I’m not sure if other brands carry something like this. Usually people use a wax as a top coat. I heard that wax needs to be reapplied twice a year, but VAX does not need to be. As far as which one is really better, I’m not sure because this is my first time experimenting! 🙂

FYI: I’m not affiliated with this store in any way. I just happened to find them on Yelp when I was hunting for vintage furniture. They have no idea I even made a video using their products.

My dresser was found at a vintage shop called ‘Mignonne Decor’ in Berkeley, CA.

xpinklily I think she means chalky finish paint I don’t think it has chalk in it it’s just a paint that you can paint wood with so you don’t have to sand things before you want to pain it
