What you’ll need to make your own kitchen decor with Chalk Couture:
- Scrap Wood – If you need ready to use wood surfaces for your projects, check out my “Wood Guys” over at Twin Knobs Woodworks by clicking HERE.
- Caviar Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Dixie Belle Clear Wax
- Chip Brush
- 120 Grit Sandpaper
- Locally Grown Chalk Couture Transfer
- House Patterns Chalk Couture Transfer
- Chalk Couture Chalkable Chip
- Chalkology Paste Couture Teal
- 3/8 inch Buffalo Plaid Ribbon
- Gorilla Super Glue
I started this project by grabbing a few pieces of scrap from my wood pile.
Small projects like this are a great way to make use of pieces that you don’t want to throw away.
Next, I applied a base coat of Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in the color Caviar.
Be sure to paint the sides & let it dry completely.
Since I wanted to achieve a “chippy” look, I grabbed my Dixie Belle Clear Wax.
Next, paint over the entire piece with Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in the color Fluff. Yes – even over the wax!
Once those are dry, it’s time to reveal the chippiness!
Sand back and watch the chippy goodness appear! I used a 120 grit sandpaper for this step.
Once your pieces are nice and chippy, it’s time to dress them up with Chalk Couture!
Begin by using the House Patterns Transfer to embellish the top portion of the larger piece of wood. Before I began this step I used a piece of painter’s tape to section off the top portion of my large piece of wood.
When using Chalk Couture, simply follow these simple steps:
- Apply your transfer to your surface.
- Use a scraper to add a coat of Chalkology Paste over the desired area of the transfer.
- Remove the transfer to reveal your finished product!
You can see that I also used the House Patterns Transfer to embellish the entire surface of the small piece of wood.
Then use the Locally Grown Transfer to add the “Fresh Eggs” embellishment to a Chalkable Chip using the same steps outlined above.
Finally, add buffalo plaid ribbon to your pieces! What a cute final touch!!
What do you think! This is such a simple way to dress up a tiered tray or really any area of your farmhouse kitchen.
