Two weeks ago you probably remember how excited I was to receive a gift package from Magnolia Home featuring their new chalk paint line with KILZ Brand!
Well I wasted no time getting down to business and immediately knew I wanted to redo a pretty beat up nightstand I scored for $11 from our Church Thrift Store. This nightstand actually originally comes from a great furniture store here in Tampa so the bones were there. Solid wood, large, plus the drawers were even on sliders.
I was excited! I decided to sand the crap out of the top of this nightstand down to the bare wood and restain with a dark color I had already from a previous project. After everything was smooth and stained I sealed the top with a clear poly.
I lightly sanded all the sides and drawers and used the Magnolia Home Chalk Paint by KILZ in the famous "Shiplap" color. I love the dark and white contrast! How gorgeous does the wood look now?!
For this project I used the Magnolia Home 2 1/2" and 1 1/2" brushes.
The 1 1/2" was perfect for all the trim lines and spaces between the drawers.
After the paint dried I applied the Magnolia Home clear wax. Okay. Lets just stop right here because this stuff STOLE the show! I have never really liked using any clear waxes (to be honest I almost always just seal with a poly) but this wax glided on SO smooth and SO even it was awesome! Seriously the easiest and best quality wax I have ever used! I have even decided to attempt painting one of the smaller vanities upstairs all because this wax is amazing!
I could not be happier with the end result! I LOVE the way this nightstand looks in Josie's room! I only wish I had another!
Thank you Magnolia Home and Kilz Brand for letting me try out these amazing products!!
