Chalk Paint™ Rescue In-store Pop-up!

Our latest “Chalk Paint™️ Rescue” here in the store was so much fun! Candice took this desk and transformed it over 2 hours.

 

 Candice painted, distressed, waxed, answered question, gave hands on training and inspired a crowd of people to get creative.

She painted the body of the desk with French Linen Chalk Paint™. It was sealed with Clear and a bit of Dark Chalk Paint™ Wax.

The top was finished with Dark Wax to create a stain like finish.

We love teaching people how easy it is to use Chalk Paint™ to upcycle a thrift store find!

Arts Alive Chalk Paint Makeover

What an incredible day at the Discover Downtown Langley 26th Annual Arts Alive Festival! Both our tent on the road and the store were hopping with both new and return customers. 

Here is the buffet we chose for our Chalk Paint™ Makeover:

 

No sanding, No priming!

Svenska Blue is one of Annie Sloan's newer colours. We decided would be beautiful on this piece!

Before and after clear wax. Can you see the difference?

All of us at TPH love what we do and it was our honour to share it with you! For those of you who saw us painting, here is the finished piece. Have a wonderful day...with gratitude!

Ombre by Christina of The Reclaimed Heirloom

Meet Christina from The Reclaimed Heirloom. She is a fantastic painter and she uses Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan!

She agreed to come in and show us how she does her Ombre Paint Technique!

We gave her this tall lingerie dresser to work her magic on:

Here we go...😀

 

She started with Honfleur and moved into Amsterdam Green

 

At the top she worked into Cream. To keep the paint wet so she was able to blend, she kept misting it with a spray bottle.

Christina was kind enough to show us two methods to Ombre. 

She stippled the colours here to blend.

It looks like a beautiful landscape painting!

Christina has taken the dresser home to complete. We can't wait to see the final product! Come in today to take ombre or any Chalk Paint™ technique with us!

Check out Christina's YouTube Channel with lots of how to videos!
