Rust-Oleum

Rust-Oleum

My current custom woodworking endeavor is a single basin, double width bathroom vanity. Qualifications for this particular vanity included light, airy/open, ample storage as well as a distressed, farmhouse vibe. My kinda details! Once the design and dimensions were agreed upon it was time to address the finishing details – ie. color, etc. My past vanity adventures had led me down the semi-transparent stain road, however I knew I needed to go a different route for this build. I marched myself into our local Home Hardware determined to find the perfect finish. After browsing paint chips, wax options and all the necessary items on my supply list I decided to go the Rust-Oleum Chalked Kit route. While I have used many Rust-Oleum products in the past & am a big advocate, I had never given their kits a go. The benefit to me with this project was that it included ALL of the necessary items needed to get the effect I was aiming for. This kit included the paint (in this case Linen White), decorative glaze, matte top coat as well as the brush to apply it all. If I factored in purchasing all said items separately it would have cost quite a bit more. It just made financial sense in this case. The project kits claim that the amount of product included will be enough to finish an average sized project…like a chair, or a dresser. While I was fairly confident this kit would be enough I did double check the shelves to see if there were more Chalked products available, just in case. For the most part this product was super easy to use, easy water clean-up, low odor and one of the best aspects of all is that it is fairly customizable – depending on the amount of sanding/distressing along with the amount & time of the glaze. While I will admit that I did have to purchase more of the initial base color, I believe that was due to the size and expanse of wood that needed coverage in my case. Would I recommend or use this product again? Absolutely! Currently trying to decide what to build next.
