Painted Chess Set

Haneen from Haneen's Haven created this fun DIY chess. Whether it's family game night or a quiet afternoon alone, this painted chess set is the perfect reminder of the activities that enhance our lives and make us whole.

Gray and white chess board with black and brown pieces on a wooden table
  • A cup of cark paint, three small paint brushes, and a pile of dark brown chess pieces

    Getting Started

    To get started, Haneen lightly sanded the surface of the chessboard to help the paint adhere. Next, she painted the chess pieces, incorporating colors from the “Live Well” design trend.

  • Gray squares painted on a board. the squares are sectioned off with Green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape


    Haneen then got to work painting the chessboard. She taped off the border using FrogTape® Multi-Surface Painter's Tape and then alternated taping off and painting the different colored squares.

    Tip: It’s important to peel away the tape before the paint has dried to ensure a smooth pull-away. Just be sure to let your chessboard fully dry before putting tape on top of the first set of squares that you’ve painted and moving on to the next.

    Wrapping Up

    Finally, seal it for added protection, then find a cozy spot to enjoy!
