Chalk Paint Decorating on Walls & Furniture | The Carpenter’s Daughter

First of all, I’ve now made it to the AMARA Interior Blogging awards to Best DIY & Home Improvement blog, so if you could take 10 seconds to vote here, I would REALLY appreciate it!

Also, I’m back to decorating rooms again, and this week I’m in our dormer loft conversion. This means we have a window popping out of our bungalow’s roof that utilises space.

Anyway, this video has a bit of everything. I first show you how I paint some dated tongue and groove cladding with Ronseal furniture paint I picked up from Wickes. It wasn’t cheap, but I love the colour and no need to seal with wax.

Then a quick tip I picked up from a subscriber on painting our bedroom door – thank you so much for that!

And then I show you how I make my own chalk paint for just a few pence. But this time, I measure it properly so anyone can copy it at home (SCROLL DOWN BELOW FOR THE RECIPE).

And thank you so much to Posterlounge who sponsored my blog this week. They provided me with these cool posters which we picked our favourite films and you can find my review with a photo and step by step installation guide here:

Installing a Movie Poster Wall with Posterlounge
