$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!!

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week!

You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.
  I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree. The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.
