    What a beautiful transformation, Tara! I’ve never heard of this paint company before but I love chalk paint so I can’t wait to try this brand out. Thanks so much for the heads up. Hope your day is a fun one, CoCo

  3. So awesome! Did you sand before waxing? Not everyone like the extra step but I always lightly sand the paint with 350 or above sandpaper to give the wax a smooth application. I don’t spend more than a few minutes… just to fill some of the pore space found in mineral paints. The hemp oil wax will give you extra protection compared to other wax finishes. Such a Cool piece! Thanks for being part of such a fun blog event!

      Thanks so much for stopping by to see the cedar chest I painted using your Wise Owl Paint Karen! I did not sand my piece before waxing, I will definitely try that next time:). Thanks for the tip! I did already start painting a shelf in my kitchen with the leftover Republic red because I liked the color so much. Thank you so much for sending me the paint, wax and paint brush! Have a great weekend and take care, Tara

  12. Republic Red really transformed the chest. It’s so peppy now and looks beautiful. You did a great job. I saw your link at Sharon’s Elizabeth & Co. party.

  13. My favorite color is red so this really caught my eye. It looks like this paint product has good coverage and the shade of red is nice. This was a great makeover.
