If you follow us on Instagram, you have seen our journey picking a new coffee table for Savannah’s living room. We partnered with Behr Paint to find the perfect piece for the space. You guys voted and it shows the round, yellow coffee table for us to paint with BEHR® Chalk Decorative Paint.
Using chalk decorative paint is one of our favorite ways to paint furniture. Painting furniture has been a part of our DIY journey since way back in 2010 when we started our business. The best thing about BEHR’s chalk paint is that it’s incredibly easy to use and that it’s available at The Home Depot® in a variety of colors.
For this project we chose “Tin White BCP08”, which is a beautiful, crisp and clean, white finish. used BEHR® Wax Decorative Finish in Clear . We purchased this coffee table at a local antique store. We wiped it down really well and began painting.
TIP: if your furniture has a glossy finish you can sand the piece before you get started. Since our furniture was already painted, we did not have to do the step.
How to Chalk Paint Furniture
Time needed: 2 hours.
How to Chalk Paint Furniture in just a few easy steps!
- Shake the paint really well to mix the paint and open up the can.
- Begin brushing on a light coat of chalk paint. Allow to dry 2 hours in between coats. Repeat coats until you have your desired coverage.
We did two light coats of the white paint letting it dry for 2+ hours in between coats. We saved our Instagram LIVE of this process so you can watch it by checking out our IGTV.
- After the paint is fully cured, apply a coat of wax using a soft cloth or an old T-shirt and buff in a circular motion to a shine.
This project was super easy and we love how it turned out! If you’ve ever been nervous about using chalk decorative paint or about painting furniture this chalk decorative paint is the way to go for beginners and experts alike!
