Today I’m sharing all about painting cabinets with chalk paint.
I recently shared my laundry room makeover (to see more, click here). My laundry room lacks natural light, and I painted the cabinets to brighten the space.
Here’s the before:
And the after:
To paint my cabinets, I used a chalk-type paint from Amy Howard at Home. I love this paint because it eliminates the need for sanding or priming. There is no prep work! Here’s what is needed:
- Amy Howard One Step Paint (I used Linen and Vintage Affliction)
- Amy Howard Matte Sealer
- Simple Green Cleaner (Amazon affiliate link)
- Paint Brush
- Foam Roller
To begin, remove the hardware from the cabinets.
Next, wipe down the cabinets with Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner.
Use painter’s tape to tape off areas where needed.
Now it is time to paint!
Begin with a brush to get all the areas the foam roller will not reach.
After the hard-to-reach areas are done, add a coat of paint to everything with the foam roller.
Once the first coat of paint is dry, give everything a second coat.
I painted the insides of my cabinets with Vintage Affliction.
I painted the inside of the cabinets similar to how I painted the cabinet doors. I used a brush for the hard-to-reach areas and went back through with the foam roller. I gave the insides of the cabinets two coats of paint.
I also painted the shelves.
Once the paint is dry, finish with Amy Howard’s Matte Sealer. Add two coats using the brush and foam roller.
My laundry room cabinets were painted in one day, and what a difference it made!
I’ve painted a lot of cabinets over the years. Here are a couple of other tutorials you may be interested in:
Happy Painting, and let me know if you try painting cabinets with chalk paint!
