Upcycling accent furniture pieces with paint is a fun and easy DIY project that can be completed in as a little as a day. From bookshelves to small tables and chairs, a coat of paint can instantly give new life to thrift store furniture find. And if that one piece of furniture doesn’t fit your new color scheme, paint it!

One of our favorite paints for small furniture projects is KILZ® Chalk Style Paint. It adds history and character to any piece, goes on thick for excellent hide and requires very little surface preparation. Depending on the furniture piece, you might want to lightly sand it prior to painting; and always ensure your surface is clean and free of dust before you paint.

If picking up a paint brush isn’t your style, KILZ Chalk Spray Paint is another great choice for painting accent furniture. Ideal for small indoor and outdoor project, KILZ Chalk Spray Paint delivers a premium matte finish with enhanced adhesion. Available in six beautiful colors, including two of our favorite blue hues – Authentic Navy and Blue Juniper.

To enhance durability of your chalk style paint project, we recommend sealing the surface afterward with KILZ Clear Sealing Wax. Or for a more antique look, seal with KILZ Dark Sealing Wax.
