Transform Your Next DIY Project with Chalk Paint

Painting with Chalk Paint

For DIYers, furniture flippers, and crafters, chalk paint can be a great option to spruce up a piece in your home. Whether you're a seasoned DIYer or just dipping your brush into a paint can for the first time, chalk paint offers a myriad of possibilities for your next project.


What is Chalk Paint?

Chalk paint is a unique type of paint known for its matte finish and smooth texture. Unlike traditional paints, it requires minimal prep work – no sanding or priming necessary – just wipe down your surface, crack open your paint, and go to town.

The coverage is unreal, too. With just a couple of coats, you can totally transform a piece or even kitchen cabinets into something straight out of a home décor magazine. Not to mention, it adheres to pretty much any surface, including wood, metal, glass, and even fabric. Plus, it's got this velvety matte finish that'll make your creations look like they were plucked straight out of a Pinterest board.


How Do I Use Chalk Paint?

Using chalk paint is a breeze, even for beginners. Simply give your chosen surface a quick clean to remove any dust or debris, then start painting! Thanks to its thick consistency, chalk paint covers exceptionally well with just one or two coats. If you're painting a high-traffic piece or area with chalk paint, it's always a good idea to finish with a top coat or wax finish to prevent damages to your furniture or freshly painted cabinets. 

What Brands and Tools Do I Use?

There are various brands of paint and tools to choose from when doing a project. Here's some paints that we suggest:

Dixie Belle Paint

Annie Sloan

Rustoleum Chalk

Jolie Paint 

Most of these brands also offer top-tier paint brushes and finishing waxes or clear coats to help you achieve your desired look. 

Whether you're using a brush, or a paint roller, another fantastic tool to help get the job done is an eco-friendly paint tray. The reusable and resealable design, streamlines the painting process, making cleanup a breeze and reducing plastic waste from traditional single-use plastic liners.

Pros and Cons.

Like any DIY project, chalk paint comes with its own set of pros and cons. On the plus side, it's easy of use and has a quick drying time make it perfect for a weekend or spontaneous projects. Plus, its matte finish lends a rustic charm to furniture and decorations. 

At the end of the day, the best paint comes down to your own preference and look you're going for.
