Chalky Paint Chair Makeover

Chair Before Chalky Finish Paint MakeoverThis chair has been with us for many, many years! I think I bought it at Pier One about 9 years ago.

It’s comfy, but it’s so dark and gloomy, so I decided to give it a makeover.

Here’s my supply list:

Americana Décor Chalky Finish Paint in Primitive

Americana Décor Crème Wax in Clear and Golden Brown

Medium Chip Brush

Chalky Finish Paint

First of all, to get the weathered and antique look that I wanted, I dry brushed the whole chair.

It only takes a tiny bit of paint on your chip brush to do this.

Take a look at this little video demonstration to see what I mean.


I continued to do this same technique over the entire chair with the chalky finish paint, and got this look (which I love!!)

It gave me an even more weathered look which I really, really love! 🙂

Here’s the old gloomy chair after it’s bright and happy makeover. I love how it turned out!

This project was super easy to do. You could easily do this same technique on baskets, too!

Have you painted any of your furniture with chalky paint?

I love it because there is no prep work at all!

You just grab the paint and go for it!

 If you would like to update and brighten up some pieces in your house,

I highly recommend Americana Décor Paints! They are really great!
