Furniture painting with chalk paints

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back, Khyati this side and today I have something different for you all. Today i have a furniture painting tutorial for you all where I share lots of tips and tricks on how to paint furniture the right way. This video was shot a year back however I released it just now as I wanted to see how my furniture coped up with the daily wear and tear and what is the feedback over the year. I share with you all a lot of tips and tricks of chalk paints, varnish and upcycling furniture in general, these things I have learnt over the period of years of my research and a lot of trials and errors. I have been very hones with my feedback on various products and where you should and should NOT try to save money. Again please note all these are my personal opinions and are in no way a generalization of the brand products. You are free to make your own decisions and select the products.

Before we get in to more details, I hope you have participated in our monthly challenge which is Festive Projects
