22 August 2017

The rise of upcycling has seen sales of chalk paint go through the roof. This matt finish paint offers a unique and rustic texture which is popular among DIY lovers, who use it to transform otherwise uninspiring pieces of furniture into enviable vintage items!

 

Here are three examples of how chalk paint has been used to create a fantastic, bespoke and vintage item, and ideas on how you can use it for your own projects.

 

 

We love this chest of drawers project, which is a brilliant example of how using chalk paint can bring your furniture back to life. What’s more, this perfectly illustrates how you can achieve an effortlessly stylish look for your own furniture. Before this chest of drawers appeared dated, and rather than throw it away, the owner used a simple technique which involves painting the furniture, followed by lightly sanding some of the edges of the furniture to give it a lovely vintage feel!

Chalk paint can be used on a variety of furniture, including old frames! This old frame was ready for the tip, with lots of scuffs and knocks, however using a small tin of blue chalk paint, the frame was given a new lease of life and was transformed into a boho chic style piece, which is sure to be a stand out feature of any room.

Even inexpensive mason jars can be enhanced using this technique; we love how this crafter used a small amount of paint to create some vintage style vases, which are a crafty way to dress any room, or would even look great in the garden!
