How To Refinish Wood Furniture With Chalk Paint

Updated: Nov 27, 2021

This video shows how to refinish wood furniture with chalk paint. This painting tutorial is a step by step guide that will show you how to take a piece of furniture from the flea market or thrift store and do a complete furniture makeover using chalk paint. Cynthia shares with you her experience so you too can flip furniture for a profit.

NO you DO NOT HAVE TO SAND all the time. She will teach you when you need to sand a piece. When you need to prime furniture and when you do not have to prime it. This is the video for you if you are just starting out refinishing furniture. Yet even a more experienced furniture flipper will get some helpful information.

This video is helpful for someone that is a DIY enthusiast that wants to do a furniture makeover with chalk paint for use in their own home. It is also helpful for someone that wants to earn some extra money in their spare time or earn extra money while working full time. This video shows you how to do a furniture flip as a side hustle using chalk paint. Furniture flipping does not always require painting furniture.

I have flipped furniture after simply giving it a good cleaning and made over $50 per hour on the final furniture flip! It took me only about 2-3 hours to complete this thrift flip using a $75 dresser and night stand that I purchased from Facebook Marketplace. I will post it with an asking price of $550 on Facebook Marketplace. Based on my prior experience in selling furniture on Facebook Marketplace I believe I will get at least $500 for it , if not the full price.
