Vintage Furniture Chalk Paint Redo
Mom and I have become a little obsessed with chalk paint lately. Like really. Nothing in this house is safe from our brushes. Nothing. WE ARE ON A ROLL!
If you don’t know what chalk paint is, it’s essentially flat paint mixed with un-sanded grout to make a chalky paint base. It gives a very vintage, shabby chicness look to things. I loovvveee it!! Anyway, our first try at it we took an old chest that was used to keep our sound system, dvds, cds, and a menagerie of broken pencils in.
You can see it was in need of feeling loved.
This once dark, and lonely piece will now spend the rest of it’s days a lovely blue that brings light and warmth to a room and every old soul that enters!
Too dramatic? Don’t care. I LOVE this piece. Really. One night I am planning on sneaking down to the living room and stealth-fully carrying it upstairs to my room. By myself. All the way up the stairs. Just you wait and see.
I’m leaving for Europe in a few hours and will be back and blogging on the 17th, so I plan on posting our chalk paint recipe and how we got the the distressed, weathered look then.
