Chalk Painted Furniture

Chalk paint before

Red chalk paint tablesI thought I would try something new and see how I liked it. I have a friend who does chalk paint and she walked me through my first project. Check out her Facebook page at the link below.

I found these tables at a garage sale for 8 dollars and paint and supplies for maybe 25 dollars. This was really fun and not hard at all. Just clean, paint, sand lightly and wax. Now to get some new glass to add, something fancy I think. This was only a test to see how difficult this might be for me, but this was so easy I am sure I will be doing this again real soon. This being my first chalk paint project and not sure how they would come out I was planning to sell in a garage sale or something, but I like them so much I think I will keep them. I hope you like it.

    This came out beautiful! I would keep them too, if I were you. I have several pieces of furniture that are vintage, antique, or just plain old (but with nice features) that I need to re-finish. I would love for you to give me some input when you’re in town!

    Sounds like you enjoyed taking something old and transforming it into something pretty
