The buffet is old. And had seen some better days. But it's still a solid piece of furniture that we wanted to keep. We debated painting the whole thing a solid colour, but both me & my mom loved the idea of 'liming' the oak with chalk paint.

After painting, which took barely any time to dry, we gave the whole thing a coat of clear wax. It gave everything a 'soft' finish and made the wood look really good. I buffed in a little extra wax on the main top area just because it gets so much use.
So happy with how the whole thing turned out! And super pleased with how easy chalk paint was to use. I'm already planning what to paint next :) Every surface is going to be covered in Old White soon haha
We purchased our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint & Wax from Painted Out, which has tons of great products & ideas. I chose not to purchase a 'proper' wax brush from them, and instead bought a pointed round brush from the hardware store. I was really pleased with it and was glad to have saved quite a bit!
What have you used chalk paint for? (or if you haven't tried it, what do you want to use it for??)
