Unearthing Aldi's Hidden Gem: Deco Style Furniture Chalk Paint

Hey, Besties!

Guess what? I stumbled upon a bit of treasure during my latest Aldi escapade. Nestled between the avocados and the almond milk was this darling can of Deco Style Furniture Chalk Paint, priced at just $7.99! Naturally, I had to snag it.


Not a Paint Snob, Just a Thrifty Queen 

Let's get one thing straight: I'm no paint elitist. My basement is a kaleidoscope of mismatched paint cans, each with its own story to tell. Why? Because I'm a thrifty shopper at heart. I'm all in, whether it's a clearance sale at the local hardware store or a hidden gem at the Habitat ReStore.


The Thrill of the Paint Hunt 

You see, part of the fun is the unpredictability. Sometimes, you score big with a can of pristine paint; other times, let's say it's a "character-building" experience. But hey, that's the thrill of the hunt!

First Impressions: Thick & Dreamy 

I've already taken this Aldi chalk paint for a spin on a couple of projects, and let me tell you, it's like spreading frosting on a cake—thick and dreamy.



Vintage Gray: A Moody Love Affair 

Initially, the Vintage Gray shade had me skeptical. It looked like a gloomy day in a can. But oh, how it's grown on me! It's got this vintage, moody vibe that I'm totally vibing with now.



The Sealing Deal 

I even jazzed up our handmade bench with this Aldi wonder. A little wax to seal the deal, and voila! Pure magic. I'm also experimenting with water-based sealers, and so far, so good.

    1. I bought that exact color some time ago and had it set aside for a project. I'm so sad I put it off because now I want more cans of it! I love how it covers and the texture is super smooth. I really wish I could find more.

    2. Hi Ania,
      I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Clear Wax to seal the bench. It still looks great a year later!

    3. Michele,
      I think Aldi carries it about once a year but I'm not totally sure. It really is a great paint!

    1. The bench was bare wood so I didn't sand before I painted. On the table legs, I honestly didn't sand beforehand, just because I'm lazy. Chalk paint is marketed to be used without sanding. As I get more experience with painting furniture though, I would recommend sanding everything first. It doesn't have to be down to the bare wood--just a nice, flat layer. A lot of things have a glossy finish applied & it's difficult to cover that without several coats. Sanding everything gives your new paint a good start. I hope that helps!

    1. For the table legs, I used Minwax Clear Polycrylic in a satin finish. I've heard it's the best for sealing furniture without the old paint bleeding through so I've used it a few times. I've had it bleed through a dark red painted piece before though. Any more, I try to find a paint with a topcoat in it or use wax for chalk painted pieces. I hope this helps!
