Refinish Old Chairs with Chalky Finish Spray Paint

Summer is here and the garage sale season is officially in progress. The popular trend of refinishing old and worn furniture into something fresh and new goes well with garage sale shopping. We have a project to share with you using our new Krylon Chalky Finish Spray Paint, Krylon Spray Wax Coating and Krylon Spray Sealer.

This chair is pretty worn and the paint is scratched. It is ready for a makeover.
We chose Slate Chalky Finish spray paint and brown spray wax.

American Decor L'Auberge Chantecleer Stencil
DecoArt Americana Light Buttermilk Gloss Enamel Paint
Fine Grit Sandpaper

  1. Clean your chair and allow to dry.
  2. Place your chair outside on paper (or a well ventilated area indoors will work, too). 
  3. Spray paint the chair and allow to dry for 24 hours. This may take two coats.
  4. Gently sand with the sandpaper to distress the edges and seat in places so the old color shows through. ( this is a good time to practice patience and do a bit at a time to get desired results)
  5. Spray the brown wax on the chair. Allow to partially dry and then wipe the wax off.
  6. Place stencil on the seat of the chair and dab the paint on top of the stencil. Gently remove when finished and allow to dry.
  7. Spray the chair with the Krylon Matte Sealer and allow to dry 24 hours before using.
