I received a message from Paula Blankenship, the Creative Director for Heirloom Traditions Paint, about working together. Intrigued, I gave her a call and we ended up playing phone tag for a bit. Because I was familiar with who she was, I was excited when I finally got to speak to her. In fact, I think we spoke over an hour on the phone. She was everything I had read and heard about her. Easy to talk to, funny, caring, kind and knowledgeable about this business. And now, here I am, writing my first blog post for Heirloom Traditions Chalk Type Paint. I hope you enjoy it!
Isn’t it funny how something so insignificant can spawn an idea? I found this piece of Masonite laying in a parking lot. I actually stepped on it, picked it up and threw it in my purse.
I just liked the shape of it, nothing more than that and I thought “I can do something with this.” I used it to outline shapes on the top and bottom drawers. So combined with it and some gorgeous colors from Heirloom Traditions I came up with this:
Have you tried Heirloom Traditions Products?! If not, you should! They have an amazing color palette and the finishing products are out of this world awesome!! They have SPRAY WAX, y’all! The products I used on the drawers were French Vanilla Chalk Type Paint, Black Bean Chalk Type Paint, Hibiscus Chalk Type Paint, Tanya Chalk Type Paint, Synergy Chalk Type Paint and Charlotte’s Red Chalk Type Paint. The base I painted with Thunderous Chalk Type Paint and finished off with Dark Patina. See how it gets down in all those grooves? I heart that!
