Painting furniture with chalk paint is a great way to add a unique and personalized touch to any furniture project.

Not only does chalk-style paint allow you to customize the look of your furniture, but it can also be straightforward to clean.

Whether you're dealing with dust, dirt, or stains on your chalk-painted furniture, you can take some simple steps to clean it while maintaining the matte finish and shabby chic look effectively.

If you need deeper cleaning, use a small amount of warm water on a soft cloth. Use a slightly damp cloth to wipe the entire surface.

The best way to clean the furniture piece is by using a dry lint-free cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt.

Never use harsh chemicals to clean painted furniture. This includes furniture painted with chalk paint, traditional paint (aka latex paint), or any type of paint.
