How to Chalk Paint a Dresser With Annie Sloan Paris Grey Chalkpaint

4 Materials
1 Hour
I just can’t begin to say enough good about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

The directions for how to paint a dresser with Annie Sloan chalk paint is seriously so easy!

Gather supplies-

Chalk paint we used Annie Sloans Paris Grey

Wax- Annie Sloan Wax

Paint brushes- We used a 2" brush

Screw driver- to remove hardware

Old Rags for wiping spills and then clean rags to use with wax

Drop Cloths or old blankets

Remove all the drawers and/or doors and hardware from dresser.

Use some drop cloths or old blankets placed under the legs and then just start painting!

We painted this dresser right in my moms bedroom!

The paint dries super fast especially here in the West where we have really dry air.

One coat could actually have been enough but we went with 2 coats but it hardly took any paint.

A total win! We just used a 2" paint brush and brushed it on. No sanding, no prep!!

I have also chalk painted my moms bed, our Entertainment center and our Master bath vanity! I love this stuff!

It turned out amazing! My mom loves her dresser now! It looks so French and chic now! It is always amazing how paint can change the entire look of a piece of furniture or room!

    Great job. I want to paint a similar dresser. How much paint did you use? Did you add water to your paint?

      It didn’t even use one small can! The chalk paint goes a long way! Even though it’s pricer it’s worth it because you don’t need much!
