Do you find it ironic that all the old, chippy and worn items (that our grandparents and even our parents saw as trash) are some of the most sought after items in home decor these days?

It's usually the chippy white pieces that sell for top dollar at flea markets and barn sales. I love to come up with inexpensive ways to get a certain look, and when I purchased an old kitchen table and chairs set, I knew the chairs would be great candidates for my chippy white paint technique!

You can find spindles on old chairs, tables, even old cribs (many times at the curb)! It's easy to cut off the legs from these pieces and transform them into chippy vintage-looking decor, even if they're new!

I have a simple, 3-step method to turn those old and worn spindles into chippy white treasures using one of my all-time favorite products - white chalk paint!
