Target Strikes Again! :: Devine Paint Review

So if you’re anything like me, you’re obsessed with Target. I mean let’s be honest, who isn’t? If you haven’t seen this article on Buzzfeed, it’s a must read; and pretty much spot on for any girl that walks through those red doors. So by now I’m sure you know that they started their own paint line called Devine. With super cute packaging and gorgeous colors, how could anyone resist? I know I couldn’t! Image

I got a small sample of the color called “Devine Pond”. A beautiful turquoise, which is unlike any color I’ve used before so I was super excited! The guinea pig for this project was a little table my friend Abby was going to take to Sal Val, so I took it off her hands. Free = fabulous. Image   It’s not something I would usually be drawn to, but I knew I could spruce it up and put my own touches on it. I thought that painting the whole thing might be a little overwhelming, so I decided to sand down the top and re-stain it. This was a little more time consuming than I thought it would be, but after about 45 minutes with my orbital sander and a very sore back, I was left with this: ImageWhen I started sanding I wasn’t sure if the patterns in the wood would stay intact, but they did! And even though the grain of the wood was facing all different directions, everything was smooth and ready for some stain.

Now for the paint! I was super happy with it so let’s talk about all the Targety goodness 🙂

1 :: Price. For the small 8 oz. sample it’s only $4.99 and it goes a long way!
2 :: Zero VOC. This makes it perfect for painting inside. I didn’t notice any odor at all.
3 :: Water based means super easy cleanup.
4 :: Quick dry time. Recoat in 30 minutes.
5 :: Non-spattering coverage. The consistency is great and it doesn’t fly off the brush.
6 :: Self priming. I lightly sanded my table and the paint was sticking to it great; 3 light coats gave me awesome coverage.
7 :: Sheen. It’s matte and reminds me of how chalk paint dries, making it super easy to distress.

The only negatives I have to talk about right now are that I wish they had more colors to choose from! This paint was great for the type of project I was working on.ImageAfter distressing, I used Annie Sloan’s Clear Wax to seal it up and for the top I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil. Did you know you could use it as a protective coat over stain? Well you can! It’s so much easier to use than Polyurethane and it’s all natural. I love how smooth it makes the wood feel 🙂

Once this was all done, I was feeling just ok about how it looked. I loved the color and the stained top, but it needed something else. Time for those special touches I was talking about earlier 😉 There’s a deep decorative line that goes all around the table and I thought about adding a gold or white accent in there until I remembered I had some extra upholstery nails laying around. Luckily, the wood was pretty soft and they were super easy to nail in. I’ve had some bad experiences in the past and was glad this wasn’t a repeat situation!

The nails looked great and I added a big knob I found at Hobby Lobby to the front. I painted it in Old White Chalk Paint and distressed it up a bit. Now I was feeling much better about this little table 🙂 With all the gorgeous sunny days we’ve been having lately and not many windows in our small apartment, I couldn’t resist photographing outside again.

I’m excited to try some of the other colors they have to offer and they even have wallpaper that pairs perfectly with each one. I mean of course they do, Target thinks of everything!

Have any of you tried the Devine paint? I’d love to hear what you think! Hope you’re all having a happy Monday!

  1. This looks so great! And that aqua/pond color is absolutely my fave color 🙂 The upholstery nails and the medallion are the perfect finishing touches. I might have to go get some of that paint now after reading your review! 🙂

  2. Wow Bre that is one gorgeous makeover! Love how the top came out uneven and aged looking (must get me some MMS Hemp Oil). I hope Target Canada carries this paint – unfortunately the Canadian stores are just not up to par with the US ones. I have one less than a block away and rarely shop there. Love the oversized knob you used and nail head detail.

  3. I will be trying the paint now! The table looks great! I recently got some inexpensive chalk paint at JoAnn Fabrics! I will try anything not to pay the $40/quart a local shop is selling the large brand name for!

    • Hi AnnMarie! Yes I know how expensive chalk paint can be! I’m up for trying anything that will save me a few bucks and works just as great. I believe you can make your own chalk paint using regular latex paint and plaster of paris. I’ve never done it but I’ve read about it! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  4. Such a gorgeous color!! I noticed the paint at Target too but didn’t give it much thought. I do believe though that anything from Target deserves a chance because Target.
    Stunning makeover as always!

  5. First of all I never knew they had their own paint line – thanks so much for that information !
    Second of all I just adore your transformation – it’s a perfect color 🙂
    And third of all I bought 2 folding metal chairs from Target for the garden that match your table perfectly !
    Visiting from Katherine’s Corner – hugs,

    • Hi Suzan! Thank you so much 🙂 Now you know where you can find some new paint to try and you might have to make something to match your chairs! Thanks for stopping by! xo

  6. I love this post so much. I’m starting to dabble in DIY stuff and love to learn from others. Thanks for doing this review. I really want to try the paint now. Loving your blog. I’ll be featuring your post on this week’s party in your PJs. Hope to see you there 🙂

  8. Apparently i haven’t been looking around my Target close enough. That’s a great price for paint and I love that I wouldn’t have to buy a ton of it because I rarely need that much and don’t really want to paint everything in the house that color. And self-priming I feel is a must. Thanks for sharing on the Merry Monday Linky party.

  10. Adorable! Thanks for the review. I’ve looked at that paint into Target quite a few times, but wasn’t sure about trying it. Now I can hardly wait!
