Painting Furniture Using All Natural Chalk and Clay Paint

Print Friendly

Surfing U.S.A.   I couldn’t help but sing when I finally finished this dresser that I’ve been tinkering with on and off for several weeks.  I painted it three times trying to get it just right but each time I wasn’t feeling it.  Am I the only one who does this?

I was stumped until I started painting the sample trim pieces for the chalk and clay paint I’m carrying from American Paint Company.  I felt like a kid in a candy store!

I like to mix up colors, so  I painted the base in American Paint Company’s Beach Glass, a fabulous teal.

The top was given one nice coat of American Paint Company’s Blue Jeans then washed with a thin layer of Surfboard.  Wow!  What a cool combination that is!!

The icing on the cake was when my friend Laurie stopped by and asked if I wanted to borrow her awesome stencil for anything.  Um ~ YEAH!

I mixed up some leftover sample pots to paint a base color of orange then topped it off with another layer of yellow.

Scuffed it up a bit then sealed it with American Paint Company’s Clear Antiquing Wax and off she went to the shop to await her new owner.

    This dresser is just fabulous.!!! I absolutely love the final result with the colours , and the flower stencil is such a dramatic look. 10 out of 10. I don’t know if this paint is available in Australia, but will try to obtain it for a few projects at my little beach house. Thank you !
