How Do You Paint Furniture to Give it a Coastal Look?

If you’re interested in giving your furniture a coastal look, you may be wondering how to achieve this look. The great news is that there are many options. MudPaint is one of the easiest ways to create a coastal look. The paint has many different looks, including rustic, aged, and rough. Read on for more information. Below, I’ve listed several ways to achieve a coastal look on your furniture.


To get a coastal look, you can use a midpoint. This eco-friendly, LEED-certified paint has different finishes that can be used to create a different look. Coastal paint is less bright than the Boho look and more aged and rustic. You can apply it with a paintbrush or an electric sander. Adding a light sanding layer before applying a second coat will help you to achieve a perfect finish.

Chalk paint

Use chalk paint on your furniture for a coastal look. This technique is perfect for transforming your ordinary furniture into unique pieces of coastal decor. There are many ways to apply this technique, but you can also opt for a custom finish if you want to give your home a more personalized look. For example, you can apply a coastal look on your dining room chairs, sofas, and even your kitchen cabinetry.

Distressed painted furniture

If you’d like your furniture to have a rustic, coastal look, you can use a distressing technique. One popular method is sanding. The grit of the sandpaper determines how much paint you’ll remove. For a softer distressed look, you can use a sanding sponge. For a more pronounced distressing effect, try using a #220 grit sandpaper. Remember to wear a dust mask to protect yourself.

Wicker furniture

To give your wicker furniture a new coastal look, you need to know how to paint it. You can use chalk, mineral, or milk paints, and make sure you use self-sealing paint. Self-sealing paint will not require a clear top coat or wax. If the paint you’re planning to use isn’t self-sealing, make sure to read the label carefully to ensure that it is.

Striped rug

In a coastal living room, a striped rug acts as the focal point of the room. If you have a traditional sofa, you can add a beach-style striped throw to the couch. To tie the whole look together, use sheer blue curtains. A striking light fixture can also be a great choice. Then, you can accessorize with other nautical items, such as wicker baskets or driftwood sculptures.

Painting the walls a neutral color

If you’re looking to update your living room’s walls, consider a coral hue like Sherwin Williams’ Romance. This shade is both playful and sophisticated and is perfect for decorating with coastal-style furniture. To create a more subtle look, try pairing it with a light greige like Aesthetic White. Both shades serve as neutral backdrops for coastal-style furniture while providing a soothing effect.
