I am super excited to be kicking off my partnership with Valspar as part of their blogger panel. We have a lot of fun projects coming up over the next year and I’m SUPER excited to get started.
Most of you know my husband and I have recently added on to our home and are currently remodeling the rest of our home and I’m excited to work with Valspar. We’ve been painting our entire house with different Valspar colors, so it’s awesome to be part of the blogger panel working with them. They’re my brand of choice when it comes to anything paint related around my house.
We’re kicking things off with a project to create a DIY Kids Work and Play Table using Valspar chalky finish Paint.
To free up our kitchen table from the mess of my four children, my husband and I recently decided to add an area in our home for the kids to do their homework, draw, color, and paint.
Rather than spending a lot of money on a new table we decided to save money and upcycle a used table to create something fresh and fun using Valspar chalky finish paint. This past weekend we headed to our local flea market, which is one of my favorite places to get great deals on things that just need a little extra TLC. We found the perfect table! Of course, it needs work, but who cares about doing the work when you can pick up a wood table for $7! SCORE! I do admit we lucked out and I’m excited because now I can spend the extra funds on other things, like decorations for the study and play area. Valspar chalky finish paint is going to help making things easy, because it can be used on décor items, varnished, bare wood, metal furniture, and previously painted items.
With 40 colors to choose from, we’ve got a great selection to make the table bright and fun. We’re thinking to include letters, numbers, shapes, maybe a silly animal. My sister is an artist so I know she will help make this table pop! We’re also going to use Valspar Chalkboard Paint to create little areas where the kids can write on the table
I’ve found several fabulous colors I want to use on other projects. However, for the table I think we’ll play with hues Aggie’s Shawl, Satin Ribbon, Crisp Bodice, Vintage Moire, but I also love the Dancing Slippers, Ann’s Embroidery, Hope Chest, and Trousseau Blue. I just want to use them all! On the plus side, we’ll also be painting chairs, which allows me additional things to paint in more colors – we’re still scouting for those.
Another tough decision I’m in the process of making is which look to go for – the paint offers four finishes – ultra-matte, satin, distressed and antiqued. I’m honestly not sure which look I want to go with yet, because they all sound neat.
I look forward to getting started, mostly because the application process sounds like a breeze – Valspar chalky finish paint helps users get the look without priming or sanding and allows a forgiving paint application. All you need to get started is the Chalky finish paint in the color of your choice for an awesome Ultra-Matte type finish. You’ll then need to use the Clear Sealing Wax for a Distressed and/or Statin look. The last step to that old-world beautiful look is finishing your project with Antiquing Wax.
You will be able to find Valspar chalky finish paint starting on 3/1 from Lowes!
