Chalk Painted Filing Cabinet

Sooooo.......I finally bought chalk paint 

and thought I'd share my first project.

 I still have much experimenting to do 
 before I can form an opinion, 

so all I'm going to do in this post 
is share a few pictures.

The laminate wood cabinet before

The metal handles before

The handles with 2 coats of chalk paint only

The finished product after the wax was applied.

I know blogland is all over this stuff, but I thought I'd share a few projects since not all of my readers know about chalk paint.  Like I said - I'm still deciding what I think of it - but this project was pretty fun, not to mention how lovely it looks in my office.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Looks great! What brand did you use, or did you make it yourself?

    1. It is Annie Sloan. I wanted to see what the fuss was all about and to have something to compare homemade to. Have you made any? What are your thoughts?

  2. looks sooooo pretty. What a great change.

  3. So pretty. I love the white handles.
