HOW TO PAINT FURNITURE WITH CHALK PAINT

HOW TO PAINT FURNITURE WITH CHALK PAINT

WHAT YOU NEED TO REFINISH A PIECE OF FURNITURE USING CHALK PAINT:
1. A sander and/or fine sand paper
2. Rustoleum Chalk Paint (I used the color charcoal, you can find the other color options here)
3. Rustoleum Matte Clear Topcoat
4. Paint Brushes
5. New Knobs (if desired)

HOW TO PAINT FURNITURE WITH CHALK PAINT
1. Take off all existing hardware and remove drawers.
2. Lightly sand your piece of furniture. I used my sander (linked above and below) and when I say light I mean light. It literally took me an hour to sand the entire thing! I did all the flat areas using the sander but if you have any intricate details you can use a free piece of sandpaper to quickly get those areas or hard to reach corners.
3. After sanding, wipe down the entire dresser with a wet cloth to get the extra sand dust off, and then let dry.
4. Now comes the fun part, paint your first coat! This is the definitely the most time consuming part of the job. I put Gilmore Girl’s on the kindle and painted a coat each night. I did 2 coats of the chalk paint (plus a touch up) and 1 coat of the top coat (plus a touch up). I didn’t want my dresser to be super shiny in finish, but if you do you may want to do an extra top coat! I did a coat each night for four nights and honestly it was kind of therapeutic. Even though it takes awhile, it’s so easy!
5. Add new hardware and voila! You have a beautiful new dresser.
