DIY White Chalk Paint Bookshelf

Hi friends, its been to long, and I could hardly wait to share this post with you. I had an itch the other day to up cycle my black bookshelf into a DIY White Chalk Paint Bookshelf.. and I did it. I did it on a spur of the moment. Once I thought about it, and got the idea in my head, I jumped up and got busy. Nothing was holding me back because I had all the supplies, and the itch hit me just right. I love the outcome and the white bookshelf totally transformed my space, from dark and a bit dated to “Neutral and Chic!” The best part is that not only did I have the supplies to up cycle the bookshelf, I also shopped my home to re-decorate the bookshelves and re-create a new gallery wall. YAY!

Lets take  look….

  1. It looks great! Just curious what is the wax for?

  2. Karen, Thank you. the was is like a sealant to the chalk paint. Thanks, jen

  3. Wow that turned out great! Thanks for sharing. I have a few laminate bookshelves that I’m thinking about painting black but I was hesitant to paint them black. I would be afraid that I couldn’t ever paint over a dark color like black. How many coats of paint did you use?

  4. I like both but the distressed open bookcase wows me more. Great job, it looks fantastic!
