Introduction: Chalk Paint Furniture Transformation
We found a CUTE piece of furniture at the thrift store for $30...it just needed to be freshened up! Using chalk paint we turned this into the centerpiece of our French style dining room.

Step 1: Items Needed
2 colors of chalk paint
Step 2: First Color
First, we painted 2 coats of Eggshell white chalk paint.
Step 3: Second Color
Next, we painted two coats of a light blue chalk paint.
Step 4: Distressing
Next I took sandpaper and distressed the edges of the furniture. In some areas I sanded just enough to see the first white layer we painted on. In others, I sanded all the way down to the wood grain.
Step 5: Sealing
Finally I sealed the whole piece with wax. This keeps the chalk from dusting or chipping off.
