What You’ll Do:

1. Prep your object with the sandpaper. Flatten out the rough edges, according to your preference and style. (While unfinished wood is popular in farmhouse furniture, you may want to go a bit smoother for this project, since you’ll be finishing it off with a coat of wax.)

2. Use the paintbrush to apply the chalk mineral paint to the surface, allowing the color to dry completely between layers.

3. Seal in the color with a coat of clear wax. Rub it on with the soft cloth and allow it to harden.
