Hello! I am so excited you are here to see this series of chalk painted furniture posts! I have dreamed of doing this series for months now and thanks to these many wonderful bloggers it is coming true!
I love painted furniture. I don’t paint every piece I find but I have saved $1000s by buying thrifted furniture and giving it a coat of paint. Furniture that wouldn’t otherwise go together in the same room can with the right chalk paint!
Each color has it’s own post so if you are considering a certain color it is easy to find. And if you are looking for inspiration and ideas there are so many here! Have fun! Click on the images below to go to that post in the series.
I think I’ve said “this is my favorite color” in every post of this series! I hope you love it as much as I do! A huge thank you goes out to those who helped me put this together!
I hope you’ve enjoyed the Color Envy – Chalk Painted Furniture by Color Series as much as I have!
