How to refinish with chalk paint

  1. Clean surface then lightly sand.
  2. Tape off areas you don’t want painted.
    If your project will have multiple colors, choose which color you want to paint first then tape and cover areas that will be another color.

    I like to use trash bags to block off areas. Use painters tape to create the lines and to tape the trash bags.
  3. Spray the chalk paint on the surface. *Tip: don’t get the spray can too close to the project while painting. It will make the texture look different when it dries. About 12″ is good.
  4. Let the paint thoroughly dry, then see if it needs another coat.
  5. Continue taping and painting until you’re done!
