First, I want to say this is NOT a sponsored post and I wasn’t paid to say anything or use Annie Sloan chalk paint. I just LOVE it and want to share it with you.
I recently partnered with HGTV HOME and Joann Fabric and Craft Stores in a room remodel challenge and I chose my master bedroom. My old dresser needed instant help! I knew I had to paint it…
I knew I wanted the dresser to be an antique white color with gray drawers. This project took me a couple of hours from start to finish using chalk paint!!
What is chalk paint?
Chalk paint is a very popular paint used for furniture….it doesn’t stop there though you can use it on almost anything!
Why I love it…
It doesn’t stink - water based
Let me show you how easy it was to update my dresser…
1. Wipe down your furniture with a wash rag to remove dirt, sticky residue, etc.
2. Grab your roller or brush and apply your first coat - you’ll be surprised how nice it covers with one coat.
3. let dry for at least 30 minutes - yes it dries insanely fast!
4. Add second coat.
5. Let dry for at least 30 minutes.
6. Last step - apply wax!
Tips - I used a wax brush in the pic above and it was so nice! Super easy to get inside of detailed places.
I added some new hardware and voila - I had a new dresser!
