Rustoleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint

Rustoleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint is an ideal way to renovate and transform furniture with a shabby chic, chalk finish look. With a classic, smooth touch, flat matt finish, it brings a new lease of life to old furniture.

The paint can be used directly onto wood (bare or painted), brick, stone, plaster or any suitably primed rigid surface (metal, plastic etc).

How to create a distressed vintage look

To achieve a shabby chic or vintage feel, use contrasting base and topcoats. Once dry, taking the topcoat back in high-wear areas will reveal the colour beneath and give the surface a worn appearance – see video below.

There are a few different methods of achieving this look, you can wet sand or scour to reveal the first paint colour, or after the first coat has dried you might want to apply a little wax to some areas before you apply the second colour, resulting in the topcoat not adhering to the waxed areas. This effect looks fantastic on objects with intricate carved details and really makes your furniture unique.

Quick Guide

Before you get started make sure the surface of your item you’re painting is nice and smooth, dry and free from any contaminants such as dust, oil or wax.

  1. Stir paint before application and then simply apply the paint with a brush or a roller depending on the item you’re painting. For furniture with a lot of detail a good quality paint brush is recommended to ensure that you reach into any mouldings and cutouts.
  2. Apply the paint evenly and keep your brush strokes in the same direction. If you want a solid finish, you will probably need 2 or 3 coats, but for a finish that you want to distress and sand back you will need fewer. Leave four hours between coats to ensure the paint if fully dry.
  3. Once your item is dry you can begin to spot sand some of the detail and places that would naturally wear, this will achieve a ‘distressed’ vintage feel. For this you can use sandpaper, a sanding block or a wire scourer.
  4. For the best outcome start off on corners and edges and work from there. Remember to keep standing back from the item to ensure you are happy with the developing effect.
  5. To protect the surface apply Rustoleum Furniture Finishing Wax. Apply with a rag or paint brush and work the wax into the paint work a little at a time. Leave this to dry for 10 minutes then buff the surface with a clean, dry cloth to remove any excess wax. This will then just take 15 minutes to dry fully.
