Chalk paint and other fun home projects

by Faith Parker in , , , ,


Yesterday was a wonderful spring day. The weather was warm, the sun was shining, in a word it was flawless. I was confined to the house as my truck was spending some quality time with the mechanic. I love being home, painting and doing DIY projects. Luckily I have a never ending supply of furniture pieces that are begging for some lovin'. So with paint brush in hand I tackled a few projects yesterday. I was dying to makeover this dresser below. I had painted it this deep charcoal color but was not at all happy with the end result.

This is the result of 3 coats of my homemade chalk paint and a little wax to seal and protect the finish

After painting the dresser I styled it with some fun accessories.

And there we have it, a fun fabulous day at home with a paint brush.
