Over the last five years, one of my favorite things to share here on the blog is chalk painting projects. I’ve always loved finding old stuff to spruce up with a simple coat of paint! It’s seriously one of my favorite things to do. Plus with chalk paint, there’s basically no prep whatsoever, so it always makes for a quick and easy project. I’m talking instant gratification my friends! It’s a beautiful thing. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane and round up my five best chalk painting projects from the last few years. These are actually all things I still own and love today!
TABLE MAKEOVER WITH CHALK PAINT
This project is pretty recent but it’s definitely one of my favorite chalk painting projects yet! I found that little wooden table for cheap at my local consignment store and gave it a fresh new look with Magnolia Home chalk paint in the color Garden Trowel. I’ve never seen a table like this one and I love it for a little plant stand. See the full project HERE.
CHALK PAINTED BARN DOOR TV COVER
I was a Nervous Nelly to paint the barn door TV cover in our living room, but I’m SO glad I decided to do it! These doors really needed a pop of color and it totally changed the vibe of our living room. Again, for this project I used Magnolia Home paint in the color Garden Trowel. It’s such a pretty soft green color! See the full project HERE.
You guys know I have an obsession with cubbies, so when I saw this one I had to snag it. It was dark green when I bought it and I knew it could be so cute with a fresh coat of paint. I used Magnolia Home chalk paint in white and I love how this turned out. It’s definitely one of my favorite finds ever! See the full before and after HERE.
OUTDOOR SWING MAKEOVER WITH CHALK PAINT
I did this project last summer and it was so much fun! We had this old wooden swing sitting on back patio for years and it desperately needed some TLC. I was actually about to throw it in the dumpster when I decided to give it a little chalk painting makeover. It turned out better than I ever expected! Again, I used Magnolia Home chalk paint in white. See the full before and after HERE.
It’s hard to believe I did this project back in early 2018–it doesn’t feel that long ago! But this is still one of my all-time favorite chalk painting projects. This is actually a metal cubby that was used for nuts and bolts back in the day. I used Magnolia Home chalk paint in the color Olive Grove to freshen it up. I can’t wait to find a spot for it at the new house! See the full project HERE.
