Painted with Sea Glass and Sunset
Donna from Michigan wanted to change up the look of this sponge painted black and blue dresser. She chose Chalky Paints Ocean Blue and Sandy Beach. Such a crisp change!

"Well I am officially obsessed with your product. I have an old table that used to belong to my grandparents it was super beat up but it fits so perfectly in my apartment and is very well made. When I was looking to replace it, I wasn't happy with the quality of the furniture in my price range. Anyway, I am not super crafty but thought I could try painting the table. I wanted to do chalk paint but heard it was really hard to work with. Also many chalk paints are super expensive! I had the additional hurdle of living in a small apartment in the City of Chicago... I don't have room to sand and was also worried about the fumes from paints/varnish, etc. I found your product through a youtube video and thought it was too good to be true... but after I tried it- it was not! Thank you for making this wonderful product- so easy, no fumes, and quick drying- not to mention the table looks awesome! I attached my before and after photos. I used Seagull Chalky Paint with the brown wax and a low sheen marine varnish. Total time was under two hours... It looks gorgeous! I'm telling all my friends and family! Thank you!!!
Michael painted this handmade rocking horse for his grandchildren. The Coconut Shell and Conch Shell Chalky Paint make a nice combination. He used Easy Varnish to protect the paint and makes it kid friendly!
Kathy is re-purposing this old shutter that came from a Maine cabin to be a cabinet door in her Montana cabin named "Restore". All of the materials and furnishings in the cabin are recycled and re-purposed. This shutter already had character so Kathy just wanted to add some more green to tie in with the green decor she has. Chalky Paints Sea Turtle Green dry brushed on the shutter was just what was needed! She then applied Easy Wax Clear to both sides to stop the old paint from chipping off anymore.
This wicker planter was lifeless and a little too "distressed"! With a coat of Seahorse as the base color, a slight coat of Vaseline over it and a coat of Whale Black over that it worked great! All that needed to be done was to lightly sand the areas painted with Seahorse to allow it to pop through. The Easy Wax Clear will keep this piece protected. It looks much nicer yet still is distressed in a good way! Take a look below!
