Painting used furniture with Colorantic Chalk paint

When we move into a new house, our current used furniture may no longer match our new decor. Who doesn’t have a sturdy dresser, chairs, a TV stand, or a shelf that are still in good condition but are no longer in style?

Colorantic chalk paint offers multiple possibilities, especially for revamping outdated furniture, whether it’s made of melamine, plywood, or solid wood. Applying paint to your furniture is an excellent way to give new life to your old furniture while personalizing your interior decoration. Whether you’re looking to modernize an old dresser or add a pop of colour to your shelves, paint can instantly transform the appearance of any piece of furniture.

With a little patience and imagination, you can easily bring them up to date. It’s much cheaper than buying new furniture, and it’s trendy. 

Youtuber Jennyfer Galarneau and her partner built their first house earlier this year and had some furniture to revamp to match the new decor. 

Jennyfer decided to give a second life to a used TV stand, a coffee table, a pitcher, a ladder, and a frame.

Because once you start, it’s very difficult to stop!

Here is the list of products used:

Properly preparing your furniture and work environment is essential before starting. Understand that if you don’t prepare your furniture before applying the paint, it may chip, and you’ll have to start over from scratch.

First, protect your workspace by laying down sheets or tarps around your furniture to avoid staining the floor. As for preparing the furniture, note that when it comes to applying a new coat of paint to a piece of furniture, it must go through certain steps:

  • Cleaning
  • Drying
  • Light sanding to scratch the surface (this allows the paint to adhere very well).
  • Application of oil-based or water-based primer (this ensures very good adhesion to the paint). It guarantees a job that will last a very long time.


Colorantic offers you three choices of finishing products:

  • Wax: Recommended for occasional furniture that doesn’t need to be cleaned with water.
  • Matt varnish: This varnish contains around 10% gloss and is perfect for furniture requiring very frequent cleaning.
  • Glaze: Translucent Window glaze contains approx. 35% gloss (satin). The glaze is excellent for kitchen cabinets and vanities. It cleans perfectly.

In a ten-minute video, Jennyfer explains the steps involved in realizing her various projects. The transformation of used furniture is amazing! We can’t wait to see them in their new home!
