With a very small budget for home decor, and a strong desire to repurpose, I recently embarked on a journey… namely chalk painting random things. Old lamps from my mom’s garage, plate hangers from Goodwill, wrought iron wall hangings. Chalk paint is the easiest, most beautiful finish you can find.
I bought a can of Amy Howard chalk paint at Agnes Agatha here in Jacksonville. It took me all of thirty minutes to paint three pieces… two of which I captured on camera. They were dry within hours. No sanding, priming, or applying multiple coats.
My mom’s old rooster lamp from 1999… aka… a junker.
A little coat of grey chalk paint… and…voila!
Instant French Country.
Goodwill plate rack. $3.99
Paired with some toile plates!!! Love it!
I barely used any paint at all!! I could probably paint 30 more small pieces with this little can of paint. This is great for the free spirit with no required talent or experience!!
