Homemade Chalk Paint (Video Tutorial)

Whether painting furniture is a hobby or a business for you, you’ve probably heard about homemade chalk paint. When I found out that making my own chalk paint was an option, I was very intrigued and interested in trying it. So I did… and I liked it!

It all started in the spring of 2013. I realized how tired I was to see my house entirely decorated with IKEA stuff. Nothing against IKEA, but after 12 years, I just needed some change. I wanted stylish, original furniture, but noticed that everything I liked from retail stores was way out of my budget. Thanks to Google, Youtube, and a couple of amazing blogs, I was able to discover and explore the world of furniture refinishing, and it was the beginning of my addiction. I now spend my days rescuing old, dull, unwanted pieces of furniture to give them a fresh look so they can be displayed, used and loved again for many more years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
