I have been painting furniture for a few years. So today I want to share 12 distinct chalk paint furniture flips, and a brief overview of each before and after makeover.
I have used a variety of paint types over these past few years, but all are chalk or mineral based paints. These are not latex paint makeovers.
For very basic information on using chalk style furniture paints, go to my page, chalk mineral paint basics.
Some of these makeovers have blog posts available to go over details of each project. But here I’m going to cover the basics and just mainly focus on sharing the before and after makeovers.
Hopefully this can provide inspiration for some of your upcoming projects! I will add a few affiliate links here and there in a quick review of any products used, such as paint colors and design elements. So see my disclosure shared below.

A fun nightstand chalk mineral paint makeover before and after with this project. A little nightstand or small table was transformed with a Mediterranean design. I love a little pops of color and this one was just that. I used:

This furniture makeover used so many colors and products that I won’t list them here. The link above will take you to the blog post where you can get all the details of the before and after makeover.

Another fun product used in this chalk paint furniture makeover was the Redesign With Prima Stick-N-Style Stencil in Cornelle Garden.
Nightstand Makeover With Stencil: with Chalk Paint and a Stick & Style Stencil
Okay so next up in this makeover line up is this cute nightstand. It was very simple. But I opted to give it a color update using a blend of Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint in Buttercream and Colonel Mustard. Sounds like a strange mix but it worked to product a pretty golden yellow. So many other design elements went into this before and after makeover and if you’d like more info click the link above to see the project post. But two of my favorites products I used were the Royal Damask Stencil by Belles and Whistles and General Finishes Java Gel Stain.
Morocco Inspired Table Makeover With the Morocco Stencil and a Beautiful Decoupage Paper
This table makeover before and after involved a pretty decorative round table that needed a bit of TLC. The base color for this table makeover was the same mix of paints in the previous table, the Buttercream and Colonel Mustard chalk mineral paints. But the true beauty came out with the addition of the Colorful Tiles Decoupage Paper and the Morocco Stenciled tabletop.
Silk Mineral Paint Table Makeover With A Glass Bead Gel Raised Stencil Design
This table was a unique makeover featuring Dixie Belle Silk Paint in Anchor and Redesign With Prima Metallic Paint in GoldenRod for the trim.

This glass bead gel is so cool, really amazing to use. Creates a very interesting finish!
Round Accent Table Makeover Using Chalk Mineral Paints and Boho Western Transfer
Next, we have a round wooden table makeover before and after. This round tablet got painted with several colors of Dixie Belle chalk mineral paints. To see details of the colors used see the blog post in the link above. I then used Best Dang Wax in Brown to add a rustic, aged effect. And after adding the Beautifully Native transfer by Redesign With Prima, this table makeover really came to life.
Patina Painted Tabletop With Nautical Transfer
Another fun makeover from a while back. This wooden pie table got a chalk paint makeover with Dixie Belle Patina Paint and you should see the before and after. For details click the link above. However, this transfer also has a nautical theme with a really cool transfer by Belles and Whistles called the Nautical Life Transfer. This makeover was a fun project and much different than prior furniture paint projects I had tackled!
Vintage Desk Makeover Using Gel Stain, Transfer, and Chalk Mineral Paint
Okay this next makeover was literally one of my all time favorites. For details click the link above. But for the top I used my all time favorite stain, Java Gel Stain by General Finishes. The desk got several coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint in Cotton, a true white paint. To really put the cherry on top for this piece I added the Redesign With Prima Postal Birds Transfer and dark wax for aging effect.
This was one of my favorite makeovers of all. I was so happy with how it turned out.
Gossip Bench Makeover With Navy Chalk Mineral Paint and a Beautiful Transfer
This was one of my first makeovers that involved using furniture transfers. This wooden gossip bench got painted with Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint In The Navy, a deep navy blue. And then the gorgeous French Ceramics Transfer by Redesign With Prima was added. Additionally I gave the seat base a makeover using a white fluffy upholstery material to give it a cute little touch.
Laminate MDF Board Cabinet Makeover With Chalk Paint, Decoupage Paper, and Redesign Moulds
This is a furniture makeover before and after that I haven’t yet shared in a blog post. But I’ll share it here now. This cabinet was a Facebook Marketplace find. I first painted with Dixie Belle Slick Stick, a bonding primer, and then painted with Dixie Belle Silk Paint in Desert Rose using a textured finish created with Dixie Belle Sea Spray texturizing powder. Then I added a fun decoupage paper by Belles and Whistles called Art Deco Bird Pattern. The last fun details were a few castings created by using the Redesign Moulds, one of which is Blossoming Spring.
