Upcycle Old Table with Americana Decor Chalky Finish

Chalk painted furniture is all the rage right now and we have stocked our store with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint by DecoArt Inc. The items you can upcycle or repurpose with paint are endless.

Here is a video sent to us by Americana Decor to share with you. For more great upcycled furniture ideas go to our Chalky Finish Paint Pinterest board HERE.
