Painting plastic

I’m going to show you that you can transform anything in your home with Chalk paint. Did you know you can paint plastic with chalk paint? I had a request from a customer to paint something in her home that is plastic. It is an Ikea organizer. I will show you how I did it.

First, I made sure everything was clean with a damp cloth. Here is a before pictureimage

Next, I painted two coats of coco color ASCP and let dry in between coats. image

Then, I sealed with a clear wax using the wax brush.

The owner spray painted an off white color before I painted the piece. I distressed lightly with a sand block to reveal the off white color. The original color was lime green. I distressed lightly on edges to reveal the green.

The owner added knobs to this piece for some added flair. Overall I think it looks great! I told the owner to let me know over time how it has held up! I will do an update to let you know how it’s done over time. What do you think? Will you try something similar? Thanks for reading my blog!
