Your pieces and talent are amazing! I love your detailed instructions. I’ve been trying to restore an old dresser and having a tough time getting a look I like. I’ve made chalk paint in a turquoise color, as well as cream and tried so many different things– painting one over the other, wiping it off, painting the other over the other, dry brushing, and today I made 5 different glazes to put over the cream and then over the turquoise and still it’s dreadful! I think I’ve settled on a solution (chalk paint in turquoise the whole piece and then glaze it-color TBD). This is my question….the chalk paint has a lot of brush strokes in it. Yours looks so smooth. Is there a special brush I really need to invest in? Thank you for any help you can provide. Sincerely, joyelle

LOVE the beautiful look you made from this project! I have a furniture piece I would like to redo (first time for me), and plan to use the chalk paint just like you did with the turquoise sideboard. However, in addition, can I paint a latex over parts of the chalk paint, before waxing (i.e. – would latex stick to chalk paint without some other process beforehand, like priming)? I would like to add a pattern to the piece in latex…unless you recommend using all chalk paint for the piece…Thank you in advance for your help!


Prime and Paint Apply a thin coat of primer to the furniture using a brush and roller (Images 1 and 2). When it’s dry, follow-up with a coat of white paint. High-adhesion primer is preferable if the furniture has a laminate veneer, which tends to be harder to paint with long-lasting results. If the piece is solid wood, traditional primer should adhere well to a sanded surface. While the top coat of paint is still wet, eliminate roller stipple by smoothing over the paint lightly with the brush (Image 3). This leaves the paint with a brushed-on look, which is a more traditional effect for a rustic or painted piece of furniture.

This dresser is among the must unique I’ve refinished. The molding around the fronts of the drawers double as the pulls! This dresser is painted, glazed, and distressed in Turquoise, with heavy Black Glaze on the piece. The before and after photos here capture the transformation. Related


I want to glaze a dresser after painting it a similar turquoise color. It’s currently painted white, and I’ve sanded it to make it mostly smooth (I want it to look a little distressed). Do you recommend I paint it a dark brown color underneath so that when I’m finished painting/glazing it, it will have the dark edges?

Hi Diane, I am totally in love with the color of this dresser. I am redoing a spare bedroom to become the “grandkid’s” room and would love to paint an old dresser I have with this color. I am totally overwhelmed at all the choices of turquoise and aqua colors. Would you please tell me the color and brand. I would be forever grateful. BTW, I just painted a small nightstand using your calcium carbonate recipe and it turned out great. Thanks so much! Diana


I LOVE THIS!! It looks so incredible! You did an amazing job! We have almost the same sideboard that we also redid (using homemade chalkpaint) in almost the same color of turquoise. Only difference is that we removed the doors and turned it into a media cabinet. I think it will be making an appearance in our living room very soon (maybe even tomorrow??). I am so inspired now that I see yours! Love the pulls too – they are so fabulous, and you are right, they make it such a special and unique piece. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful work!

Re-sand the Furniture To distress the finish (and make the painted surface look more naturally weathered), take the sander back to the surface of the furniture when the paint has dried. With emphasis on the edges of the furniture, use the sander to gently remove some of the paint and primer allowing the underlying wood to show through. The effect can be subtle or dramatic, depending how much of the existing wood you allow to show through the topcoats.
