We all have that one piece of furniture that’s just kind of there. You love the bones of it, but there’s still a little something missing. Sanding it all down just to repaint it sounds like way too much work (ain’t nobody got time for that), so it continues to collect dust while you secretly wish you could breathe some life into it.
That’s why chalk paint is exactly what we’ve been waiting for. Not only is it easy to use, but it looks amazing without requiring you to be a perfectionist about every detail. (Trust me).
Caution: After you try it, you’ll want to use chalk paint on everything from your window moulding to your kitchen cabinets. It’s kind of addicting.

All you’ll need is:

– white spray paint (optional)
– Miss Mustard Seed’s white wax
– sandpaper
– cloth of choice

Step 1: If you’re painting a wooden surface, gently spray with white spray paint. Let dry.

Step 2: Using a brush, gently apply chalk paint to your object of choice. Let dry.

Step 3: Apply wax with a cloth (I used a t-shirt). Let dry.

Step 4: Using sandpaper, rough over edges to give a distressed look.

Told you it was easy! What piece of furniture will you refurbish using chalk paint?
