$11 Nightstand Makeover with Magnolia Home Chalk Paint (for Kilz Brand)






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. 


 BEFORE:



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!!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!   To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white. 1. Drizzle 2. Sterling 3. Halation These three options are als

Backyard Entertaining Project

  Backyard Entertaining Project with Home Depot! DISCLAIMER: This post is sponsored by Home Depot.  All opinions are my own.  Thank you to Home Depot for sponsoring this post.  Post contains affiliate links.     Spring has sprung and this girl is ready for outdoor entertaining and spending evenings under the stars! I know you all have seen our backyard for a couple years now and probably thought we were finished with it.  Well truth is during the daylight hours all is well...but after sunset we could really only entertain and hang out with friends inside the screened lanai where we have market lights strung.  The pool lighting helps a little but my conversation seating located by the fireplace gets SO dark! I tried lanterns, candles, allll the things and it is just too dark to sit and entertain with friends.       At first Elton and I discussed adding a structure.  Possibly a pergola or gazebo but unfortunately my communities HOA did not allow it.  That's when we decided to add som
