Easy DIY Shabby Chic Furniture Painting This Christmas

Two words that we love here at Rainbow chalk are EASY and DIY.

DIY shabby chic furniture painting has never been so easy! We’ve got another great example of how you can use our furniture paint to transform a dull looking chest of drawers into a sophisticated TV stand.

And, with Christmas right around the corner, why not revamp the dining table and chairs before the family come over?

Here’s how Tracy, who works here at Rainbow, used the paint to jazz up her front room at home.

Have you read our previous post? Tracy finished off the remaining paint from her dining table project to complete this chest of drawers!


Tracy used our Chalky White furniture paint, which complements the light wooden floors and the pastel green walls.

No primer was needed to start the shabby chic-ing process off.

Why? Because our paint is so thick and pigmented that it will cover most varnished or unvarnished surfaces without a problem.

The whole process took between five and six hours in total, including the drying time.

I am delighted with the result. It really has transformed the furniture at a very little cost. Just a bit of effort – it couldn’t even be described as hard work!” – Tracy
