“Painting old furniture is one of my favorite ways to save money,” says Turner. “My favorite painting technique is chalk paint (try Devine Color Chalky Finish Paint- Shadow Grey by Valspar) because you don’t need to sand the furniture back before painting. It’s super easy and has a gorgeous matte finish."

"I especially love chalk paint in grey or charcoal because it can transform any old piece into something that looks like it’s straight from a Restoration Hardware catalog,” Turner adds.
