Once the paint is dry, seal the surface by applying a thin layer of Clear Wax. Wipe it with a rag to remove any excess. Focus on highlighting the details of the furniture piece. Be sure the wax is applied in the crevices. Wipe on Dark Wax and wipe off shortly after.

PREPARATION AND APPLICATION

MAGNOLIA HOME BY JOANNA GAINES® CHALK STYLE PAINT can be applied over most existing finishes with little surface preparation. Use this product to up-cycle vintage furniture. Apply paint on old and new wooden furniture, cast stone, concrete, and even metal surfaces†. Do not use on horizontal surfaces subject to foot traffic.

  • Loose and peeling paint, mold and mildew stains, rust and all other foreign substances should be removed from the surface. We recommend scuffing and sanding glossy surfaces and repairing any imperfections. Remove all dust with a damp cloth and allow to dry.
  • Shake the container thoroughly before opening for application.
  • Use MAGNOLIA HOME BY JOANNA GAINES® CHALK STYLE PAINT on properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces. For woods that contain tannins, such as redwood and cedar, use a coat of primer such as KILZ® PREMIUM Interior/Exterior Water-Base Primer.

  • Brush: High quality Nylon / Polyester Blend

Note: This product is formulated to be rich and concentrated to provide excellent hide and coverage. If you find this product to be too thick add up to 2 oz. of water per quart to thin it to the desired thickness for smooth and easy application.

  • Test your spray application technique on a scrap surface or inconspicuous area before starting the project.
  • Hold can upright, moving from side-to-side while spraying lightly and evenly about 12” from area being painted. Always begin and finish spraying off the object. Each spray pass should overlap the other pass by half.
  • Apply multiple thin coats to prevent dripping and sagging.

NOTE: Use MANGOLIA HOME BY JOANNA GAINES Clear Chalk Spray Paint over glossy surfaces to create a matte finish. For high use surfaces like coffee tables, dining tables or vanities, spray over surfaces previously painted with MAGNOLIA HOME BY JONNA GAINES Chalk Style Paint for a permanent seal.
