19 Chalk Paint Projects

If I had more storage space and room to work, I would buy lots old furniture in need of some love and restore it.

I have a semi-secret love of painting furniture.

I love taking something that is looking neglected and unloved and making it new again.  It’s so much fun!

 

I have at least two more projects waiting to be painted with my favorite — chalk paint.  I love working with it.  I wrote a post about it here.

(I have only used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint but I know there are other chalky-type paint mediums out there — including making your own.)

 

During this busy holiday season I’m hoping to squeeze both of my painting projects in before I host family for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

In the meantime, I’m gathering some chalk paint inspiration in one of my favorite places to be inspired – Hometalk.

What I love about this clip board is that I’ve included chalk paint projects that even include fabric!  Yes, fabric!  One of these days I’m going to tackle painting fabric with chalk paint.

Are you familiar with Hometalk?  It’s a great social media site where you can post your own projects, browse others, comment and get feedback.  It’s a place for home enthusiasts just like me.

You can create clip boards of the favorite things you find while browsing on Hometalk.

My latest clipboard…Chalk Paint Projects, of course!

Do you have any projects in your home you’re planning to get done before guests arrive this holiday season?

Or am I a little crazy trying to get it all done?

 

On a different note, I’m sharing my pecan pie recipe over at All Things Heart and Home today.

I hope you’ll pay Robin a visit at her beautiful blog.  She is the sweetest person and I adore her  and her home and blog.  

 

Wishing you a beautiful day,

  1. I love your chalk paint projects…love the Hometalk board!

  2. I’ve only used chalk paint once because well…painting something besides walls isn’t fun to me. 🙂 I love what you’ve done though. Your china cabinet is one of my favorites!

    Thank you for your sweet comment about Spencer’s room. We are super happy with it. 🙂

    Love all your chalk paint projects, it encourages me to try things if I see others doing it.
    I bought some Americana chalk paint at Michaels with 50% off coupon. Nice to try at less amount. Found the color to be quite intense so might put little bit of white acrylic with it in separate container next time. Was quite thick.
    I’ve used home made chalk paint also and prefer it. Afraid the professional stuff is way out of my budget, way out.
    I have a chair am going to paint with the chalk paint, just a little side chair to try out and have couple tables to redo so will use chalk paint on those. I buy the sample paints at Lowe’s for $1 (rejects) when I find colors I like or can combine to make other colors. Loved it last year and earlier this year when I’d find free coupons in my magazines for paint samples at Lowe’s. No more coupons for free samples now, only for gallons.
    Happy weekend Enjoy your blog
