Today, I’m sharing a compilation of DIYs using chalk paint.
These 4 simple chalk paint makeovers are an example of what you can do to create a beautiful cozy home that is unique and one of a kind.
I take you step by step as I guide you through each DIY.
They are easy and perfect for beginners.
Here are the 4 simple chalk paint makeovers.
#1 – Making over frames with chalk paint.
This easy transformation can take your frame from blah to wow!
Here is the link to the full tutorial on how to makeover a Goodwill frame.
For this frame, I used Folk Art Home Decor chalk paint.
I loved how easy this paint was to work with.
It went on smooth and dried into a beautiful matte finish.
After it dried, I took some sandpaper and gave it a nice rustic, chippy look.
Below is a white mirror I painted.
I lightly buffed the edges and raised areas with sandpaper for a rustic look.
Another piece I painted was this fireplace mantle that I turned into a chalkboard frame.
I bought it at a second-hand store for $45.00.
For this frame, I painted it with Annie Sloan paint in the color Old White.
It is one of my favorite pieces I enjoy placing all over my home.
Plus, it is fun to write my favorite scriptures or seasonal sayings.
#2 – Paint a table and chairs.
Linking the tutorial on how to paint a table and chairs here.
The photo above is the before.
This breakfast nook looked a little dreary and needed some pizazz.
So, I took some Annie Sloan chalk paint and painted them.
Here is the YouTube video for that DIY.
I learned something during that video to wait for the paint to fully dry before applying a second coat.
That’s how life goes, sometimes, doesn’t it?
After I figured out the issue, I repainted it and placed it in the corner of my breakfast nook.
And boy, it was exactly what that area needed!
What do you think? Do you like it?
I then added the matching Pottery Barn chairs that I painted with Annie Sloan paint.
I added a little blue antique chair that I found at Goodwill.
And a brand new rug from Amazon. Link here.
Plus, a beautiful dish rack that I had customized by a seller on Etsy.
I give a tour of this breakfast nook on YouTube. I’m linking the video below.
This area became bright and cheery.
I encourage you to give it a try if you have a table and/or chairs that need sprucing up.
It will bring a big impact to your home.
I think this breakfast nook looks fantastic.
I love this space now!
#3 – Paint a Sofa

You guys! This DIY is my favorite.
When you see the before in the photo below, you can see how dramatic this DIY was.
It honestly gave my husband, and I pause to take an old antique and paint it.
But I envisioned the transformation in my mind, and boy, it turned out amazing!
Here is a link to the video sharing how I painted this sofa.
This sofa was the perfect addition as I slowly transform my home with a Rustic Victorian Farmhouse style.
I am in love!
#4 – Paint a Chair
Link how to paint a chair, here.
This was the start of it all.
I bought this chair for $20.
I had heard about painting a fabric chair and wanted to give it a try.
The chair I chose was a little risky since it had a busy pattern.
But it had the perfect smooth fabric and style I was looking for.
Here it is in its ugly stage, as seen in the photo above.
The black design is not that appealing, in my opinion.
The Paris Grey color covered it so well that you wouldn’t even know what it looked like before.
What I love about this neutral grey color is how well it works with other colors.
I’m not restricted to one color for pillows or blankets.
I love the versatility of it.
What do you think?
I hope this compilation of my best chalk paint DIYs inspired you to get your paintbrush out and make over some furniture and frames.
To give new life to pieces in your home for cheap.
With a little bit of paint and time, you can transform almost anything.
