How to Redo an MDF Wall Decor Into Rustic Finish With Chalk Paint

If you’re interested in applying a rustic finish to your MDF wall decor, you should follow the steps outlined in this article. The steps covered here include preparing the MDF wall for chalk paint, using a brush and roller, and finally, the final step – applying wax. If you’re using wax on your wall decor, you’ll need a 500-milliliter tin. You’ll need about three to four liters of wax to apply a single coat.

Creating a rustic finish with chalk paint

Using chalk paint to redecorate your home gives it a vintage and antique feel. You can use it to re-invent old pieces of furniture or to achieve a distressed look. With so many different styles available in the market, chalk paint is a great option for making your home look more personal. Here are some of the techniques to use chalk paint on your wall decor.

Preparing an MDF wall for chalk paint

There are a few steps that you must take in preparation for applying chalk paint to MDF walls. The first step is to properly clean the wall and remove all traces of dust. You should then use a vacuum to remove any dust that remains after sanding. After removing the dust, you can wet rags in white spirit. Do not overdo the solution. This will degrease the surface and provide a good sealed base for undercoats. Next, you must prepare the surface for your top coats.

Using a brush

A common question from people new to using chalk paint is whether they need to prep the piece first. The answer is ‘yes,’ but not all pieces need to be prepped. The first coat of chalk paint will be slightly chalky, and a final buffing will give the piece more luster and shine. You can apply clear wax over the top of the chalk paint to further enhance the finish.

Using a roller

The first question that most people ask when they decide to use chalk paint is whether they need to prepare the surface. The answer is that yes, you do need to prep your piece of furniture. In general, if it is shiny, you should use a Slick Stick product. If it is not, you should use a different type of paint.

Using a wax

If you want to give your MDF wall decor a rustic finish, you can use furniture wax. You can either use clear or light wax, or you can use colored wax to give the furniture an aged look. Although wax isn’t required, it will help to improve the furniture’s appeal. There are several types of wax to choose from, and some are more durable than others. It is also a good idea to protect nearby items, such as curtains and mattresses, with a dustsheet. Marshall Cotton Twill dust sheets are highly recommended for this purpose.
