I LOVE This Blue and Copper Chalk Paint Furniture Makeover

Does anyone remember this white distressed coffee table I rescued a couple years ago? I love that wood pattern I glued to the top of this coffee table, but thought it was time for a change of color.

I wanted something a little different this time. For the new look, I wanted to use 2 of my favorite chalk paint colors together to make a unique piece of furniture. I LOVE how it turned out. And, it was fun!

Good news, you don’t have to use the exact paints I use. If you have similar colors in different brands that look good together, go for it.

I also love mixing up my own DIY Chalk Paint recipe using latex paint and plaster of Paris.

Copper And Blue Furniture Painting Tips And Steps

Because it’s so freeform, this kind of paint effect is easier to recreate after watching the video. But, I have a few tips and steps to help you get this look.

First, use chalk paint. It will stick to just about any surface and is easy to apply and distress with a sanding sponge. Other paints probably won’t work as well.

Before starting, make sure you wipe furniture clean with dawn dish soap & water or another degreaser and let it dry completely before staring.

When you’re layering on the different colors, go with whatever look you like. Everyone watching my video can probably pick a different point in the process where they thought it looked better.

It’s all about what you like. So, keep layering on copper, teal, and paint until you love the look. Using a light mist of water while applying chalk paint is a great way to blend different colors together.

There is no wrong way to do this, as long as you like it.

Once you like the look of the paint, use a slightly damp sanding sponge to reveal some of the layers of paint. This works best in areas with corners, curves, and grooves.

Then protect your final look with 2 coats of your favorite chalk paint top coat, like the Matte poly I used.

I really liked that distressed paint. But, it didn’t really match the room I used it in anymore.
