15+ Easy Chalked Paint Project Ideas Anyone Can Do

Chalk paint is a “DIY”ers best friend for different DIY projects and makeovers

Chalked paint has become so popular due to its ability to transform anything quickly. There is nothing more satisfying than just updating a piece of furniture quickly without all the priming and fuss that goes along with different painting methods. Here are 15+ chalk paint projects to inspire your next DIY project.

You can either buy or make your own version of decorative paint. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. You can read more about this on Liz Marie’s Blog (people also left some great comments about also considering being eco-friendly).

Should I splurge on a chalk paintbrush?

Okay, since we are DIY”ers” I hate spending money. If you plan on only doing a small project then a regular brush is probably fine. However, having the right tools (like this brush) can really make your painting job easier. A lot of “professional” chalk painters would roll their eyes at people using just a regular brush.  They also may not like making your own version, but we have a lot of success redoing furniture with DIY chalked paint.

Would I chalk paint an expensive piece of furniture?

Probably not. While I think chalk paint can take on my styles and aesthetics it is best to only paint pieces that you won’t be devastated if it doesn’t work out. We love painting free items we get from Facebook BST and other thrift stores.
