Thanks to our online store and social media, we were able to service our customers in a new way. I feel blessed to be an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ stockist knowing how creativity was a savior for many people during the last few months. Daily I gratefully worked to fill orders, answer countless questions on Chalk Paint™, personal shop and offer inspiration and instruction.

Two and half months later I am excited to re-open our location and we have YOU to thank. So many people were kind and encouraging. As I write this I am overwhelmed with all the love and support you showed us during this difficult and uncertain time. I feel safe in saying that the whole Passionate Home team loves and appreciates you all. The girls are anxious to return to work and to contribute to you “Creating a Beautiful Life”.

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!
