Chalk Furniture Paint Dresser Tutorial

This post is sponsored by Maison Blanche.

I have another makeover in our Master Bedroom to share with you today. Earlier in the week I revealed our bed makeover and today I have a super simple chalk furniture paint dresser tutorial for you.

So let’s take a stroll back to when I bought this Henry Link dresser. . . .

I had found it at the Salvation Army for a steal of a price. It was not a horrible color but it was not in the best of shape and it did not go with the room. We lived with it for awhile but I just knew I wanted a creamy grey color. So after selecting the perfect color from Maison Blanche, here is the after . . . .

Directions:

Step:1 Remove all hardware

Step 2: Paint first coat of paint onto dresser. Let dry. Mine took about 30-40 minutes to fully dry but this is also the end of summer and it is pretty hot here in Dallas. If it is a cool day, you may need to let it dry overnight.

I even enlisted the help of my 8 year old. She loves being able to help paint “real” projects!

Step 3: Paint second coat and let dry. I personally do not think you need to do 3 coats but if you feel you still need more coverage then you can.

Step 4: Apply clear wax. I used a old wash cloth and scooped some onto the cloth and rubbed it into the finish. Then I took another old wash cloth and wiped off any excess.
