Chalk Paint DIY Tutorial

Chalk Paint DIY Tutorial

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hey Everyone!

I have a super cool new tutorial to show you!  My best friend lives next door and she got this shelf at a garage sale.  After awhile, she couldn’t find a good spot in her house for it, so before she threw it away, she asked me if I wanted it.  I said sure! I think that could be something fun at some point!  It sat around for a little while and then it dawned on me that I should try the chalk paint trend that is so big right now! This is my first attempt at chalk paint upcycling… what do you think about the outcome?


I used the Folk Art Home Decor Chalk paint from Plaid and really liked how well it turned out.  Comes in a ton of colors and is acrylic, so great for cleanup and easy brush washing.


I even used the paint on these random birds I had laying around… they are so cute now!


For all my Pinterest Peeps… THANK YOU for helping me get to 5,000 followers!  And here is a handy pinterest photo, so that you can remember this projects for your DIY board!


I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I liked making it!  Leave me comments and send me photos if you are inspired by any of my projects… I love to see what you make!

Hi Melanie! Your videos are amazing! I was wondering if you would be able to create a baby lovey tutorial. I have been watching your channel for quite awhile, and I always see baby loves in crafty finishes/on your etsy. I would love to learn how to make one because they look so simple and cute!
