As many of you know a few weeks ago I was able to travel to Waco, Texas for a master class lead by Chip & Joanna Gaines. The class was so much fun & it was to reveal something super exciting that Joanna is launching. If you haven’t already heard, Joanna Gaines is launching the Magnolia Home Chalk Paint line with Kilz! I’m already a huge fan of the Magnolia Home Paint line that already exists & have been using it throughout our farmhouse on furniture, cabinets, & walls, but the new addition of chalk paint opens up even more possibilities. It was so fun to hear her talk about the new line in person & to hear her passion behind it, it made me admire her even more than I already did. I couldn’t be more thrilled because my favorite kind of paint is chalk paint & I’m in love with her home paint line already so I was over the moon they were adding the chalk paint for us DIY lovers. I am all about bringing new life to old furniture pieces & basically transforming any surface with paint so this made my heart so happy that she created this product in some of my favorite paint colors.
Joanna, like me, always advices to give life to your old furniture before investing in new pieces & this paint is perfect for just that. I was lucky enough to get to test it out before it launches & I have to say I fell in love. I used the color shiplap at the demo which is a creamy white. I painted a dark stained tray with the chalk paint & was amazed at how well one coat covered which is not an easy task with a white paint. After two coats & one coat of wax my tray was looking perfect. I would say this chalk style paint is perfect for anyone from beginner to expert & that you will fall in love with not only the formula, but the color selection as well.
Some quick facts about the paint:
-The chalk paint will come in quart size cans that can be found on Magnolia.Com or at the Silos & should be available soon.
– The chalk paint line will have 44 colors to start which are straight from her home line of paint which is fantastic because in my humble opinion are some of the best paint colors ever.
-The finish is ultra matte & provides an ultra flawless surface.
– The paint works on multiple surfaces like metal, wood furniture, unpainted & painted surfaces, & even concrete.
-Concentrated formula provides great coverage & smooth finish.
-The chalk paint has low VOC’s
– One quart size can of the chalk paint covers 100 square feet with two coats.
-The formula is fast drying allowing you to get an entire project done in a day with a few coats & a top coat of wax.
-She also has wax to finish the pieces off in different shades from clear to dark & one in between.
I can’t wait to get my hands on it again in our farmhouse for all the projects we have going on. I will be back then with a further review and more facts that I find out, but I hope you guys are as excited as I am about the new line of chalk paint from Magnolia Home! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today & be sure to follow me behind the scenes on Facebook & Instagram. xx
