How to add colorful shades to your chalk painted furniture

Dr.Happy Jasta

These days chalk painted furniture is getting high scores in trends, as it is a perfect way of adding some vintage touch to home interiors. One can find plenty of ideas online about painting furniture with chalk paint. However, this DIY enthusiast named Gwen B. Alexander from Columbus has painted her furniture in unique shades. She likes chalk painting furniture with two or more colors. One can see numerous pictures of unique DIY works in her Facebook posts.

She regularly posts pictures and videos of her refurbishing works. Recently, she shared an easy refurbishment project to chalk paint furniture in four colors at HomeTalk – an online DIY community. She believes any furniture unit can be given a special look if one follows the procedure correctly.

One can start with standard paint brushes, but large brushes make the paint job quick and easy. After choosing the desirable color palette, drop the chalk paints in a way that they stay cozy with each other and dip the brush without disturbing the color arrangement. Once the brush is filled with paints, you can apply it on any part of the furniture to create colorful patterns. Move the brush lightly to blend the differently colored patterns.

The cabinet top she chalk-painted looks impressive over the blue body. If you are also planning to modernize any of your old furniture, then chalk painting is a fantastic alternative.
