Have you ever tried Chalk Paint? It’s such an easy way to transform any piece of furniture with very little to no prep work!
Last week I shared my pretty little cabinet with y’all. She’s a little rough, but after a day at the DIY spa, she’s better than new.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is the original chalk paint – and it is an amazing product that helps you paint furniture (or almost anything!) with almost no prep. Just clean, paint & go. While not every piece is that easy, just make sure you have a solid surface without a ton of damage. Also make sure you’ve wiped the piece down completely so it’s clean and ready to take the fresh paint.
Two easy coats was all it took to give this little cabinet a whole new lease on life. For this piece, I used Provence, and it’s the perfect dusty teal.
Just a little distressing, nothing major. I actually let it sit painted a couple of days before attacking it. I always wait for the piece to “tell me” if it needs it or not.
I did leave the top alone… it was just too pretty to cover up. Besides giving it a paint makeover, I added some new ceramic knobs to make it pop just a bit.
I’ve used this little cabinet all over, but I think my bedroom has to be the best place! It’s been my nightstand for a few years now… it just fits there perfectly!
