Happy Wednesday! We have had SO MANY questions about the chalk paint finish we did on the base of the Alvarez dining table a few weeks back…
Here is a close up of it!
Easy Chalk Paint Finish
Isn’t it gorg?? We love chalk paint finishes, but so many of them require 14 steps… Not our style 😉 We recently found a few products and tricks that helped us achieve the finish with minimal steps, and we LOVE the outcome! Check out our how-to video here!
Here are links to all the products we used!
I also used the chalk paint finish on this centerpiece tray I made for my dining table! This was so simple!
I built this with a few scraps in about 5 minutes!
I started with a scrap of plywood. Any size will do!
Next I cut 1×3 boards the length of the shorter sides and attached them to the plywood using my Ryobi 18g brad nailer and wood glue.
Then, I just cut the longer 1×3 sides to sit flush on those boards. I attached them the same way.
I used the chalk paint method we shared in our video to finish it! And that hardware….
Those were a lucky Amazon find that I LOVE!!! You just screw attach the screws and then screw the cap on. You can find them HERE!
I also found the leather on Amazon HERE! I love it because it’s distressed and worn looking.
