DIY Projects | Chalk Paint + Pots

A fun DIY project this Fall season can also help you reuse and recycle old flower pots that you may have tucked away!

No matter the size of your old flower pots (or flower boxes!) – adding some fresh Uniquely Exquisite Tintable Chalk Paint from Exeter Paint can help give your garden or front steps that extra sparkle this fall!

Simply follow our step-by-step guide on how to create these beautiful accents for your home! 

1) Stop into Exeter Paint or Exeter Paint West to pick up your own container of Uniquely Exquisite Tintable Chalk Paint. Choose ANY color from our swatches and one of our friendly staff will mix it up for you. Also buy top gloss 

2) Find those reusable + recyclable pots or flower boxes to give new life to! If they’re not sitting around in your garage, pop around town looking for some bargains at Garage Sales or Antique Stores! You’re sure to find a gem sooner or later to give some new love and life.

3) Open, stir, and paint your pots! When applying Chalk paint, you’ll see visible brush strokes, but it’ll dry pretty smoothly. Apply several thin coats to get your desired look.

4) Use a clear wax for a velvetty, matte finish on your new pots! But if you’re looking for a more glossy glow, apply a satin or gloss finish which can also be found in either of our Exeter Paint stores.

5) Display your new pots in your garden or on your front steps! Take photos and share with us on Exeter Paint + Exeter Paint West Facebook Page for chances to be entered into our next monthly promo-giveaway! Plus, we can always use some inspiration from our readers.

Chalk Paints | Giving Your Home a Velvety, Matte Finish

We’ve heard of the chalkboard paints and how fun and easy they are to use to create a useful space within your home –  but what’s all the buzz about chalk paint and what’s the difference?

While chalkboard paint gives us the traditional school-age, black, chalkboard look, feel, and usability, chalk paint comes in a large variety of colors made for painting furniture, floors, and walls to give a matte, velvety finish.

At Exeter Paint + Exeter Paint West, we are proud to carry
Uniquely Exquisite Tintable Chalk Paint. With this brand exclusively available at the Exeter Paint stores you can come in and choose from a wide range of colors for your next outdoor or interior project. Chalk paint can be used on almost any surface from wood to metal to plastics.

Use Chalk Paint in a fun DIY project to revamp an old piece of furniture . . . or your car!
