Regular chalk paint is great for getting a chalky matte finish and adheres well to many surfaces. And, aside from regular chalk based paints there are other chalk mineral paint products available in many different brands and features.

Just remember that these paints need to be sealed with wax or a top coat to protect your finish.

Dresser Makeovers

Dressers are a mainstay of bedroom furniture. So often when painting bedroom furniture you need to paint a dresser. Most dressers see much daily use, so a durable paint product is best to hold up to wear and tear. Next up I’ll share a few dresser makeovers to share to inspire you to get started on your bedroom makeover.

White Chalk Painted Dresser

This dresser was the first furniture I painted using any type of DIY paint product. This was an old dresser and nightstand set that belonged to my grandma. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White. Then I sealed with Annie Sloan Clear Wax and put on new hardware.

This is a tough question to answer, and a very individual one. Honestly, it totally depends on one’s preference.

Some may love whites and neutrals like gray and wood tones, while others may want to go deep and moody with navy and black paint colors. Yet others may be ready for some color with bright pinks, purples and other bold colors. There are honestly so many colors to choose from!

And you can always consider the best of both worlds, having some neutral wood tones with some pops of color on the same furniture piece.

How To Paint Bedroom Furniture With Silk Paint

When using Dixie Belle Silk Paint, you’ll need to do some prep work before you begin painting. However, the prep work is minimal.

How To Prep Furniture For Painting

Scuff Sanding Before Painting Bedroom Furniture

But typically if the furniture is in good condition and not in need of any wood filler or major sanding, just do a quick scuff sand.

Scuff sanding is a quick sanding with a fine grit such as 220 to help take down any shine. This quick scuff sanding will help your paint adhere.

Clean Before Painting Bedroom Furniture

Once done with sanding use a mild cleaner to remove any dirt and gunk that might have accumulated on the surface. I usually use either White Lightning Cleaner or Krud Kutter spray-on cleaner.

Then rinse clean with clear water. Once your furniture is prepped, you can start painting with Dixie Belle Silk Paint.

Applying the Dixie Belle Silk Paint To Your Bedroom Furniture

Applying Dixie Belle Silk Paint is easy and requires minimal effort for maximum results. Just apply the paint in thin coats of using a synthetic brush in long strokes. Allow the first coat to dry completely before applying any additional coats.

My favorite brushes to use for Silk Paint and most other paints are the Dixie Belle Synthetic Brushes in Flat and Oval. Also the Cling On S50 and S30 are excellent synthetic bristle brushes.

Most projects require two coats. This paint has great coverage! You’ll be amazed at the coverage with even just the first coat.

And this paint dries pretty fast, but wait at least 2 hours between coats.
