Folk Art Chalk Paint Freebie!

I recently reached out to the makers of one of my favorite chalk paints. Plaid produces Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint and I’ve used the color “Sheepskin” a LOT. The customer service representative could not have been nicer and shortly after filling out the request form I received a box with 5 new colors and 2 waxes, clear and white. I was super excited! I was expecting 1, maybe 2, and got 5.

“English Lavender” is the one I’m most excited about. I’ve looked for a pretty soft purple and have been disappointed with every one I’ve tried. This looks GORGEOUS in the bottle. I have a thrifted jewelry box I’ll be transforming soon with this color. Stay tuned!

“Willow Mist” is a pale pink color that reminds me of a hydrangea. I have another jewelry box I’ll be making over with this color.

“Summer Porch” is a buttery yellow that would be so cute for kitchen accents or on a front porch (hence the name, I’m sure). I’ve wanted to try yellow for a long time but haven’t found just the right one. This looks like it’ll be the one. I have plans to use it on a vintage desk!

“Glacier” reminds me of the “Parisian Blue” from Martha Stewart’s line that I recently used for my little secretary desk and I’m eager to see how Folk Art’s color compares. Guess what…I have ANOTHER jewelry box.

“Monarch” is a bold orange unlike anything I’ve ever used before. I’ll be on the lookout for a cool pair of mid-century end tables to spruce up with this orange and some bright turquoise. In the meantime, I spruced up a thrifted frame to make a modern farmhouse kitchen print.

Butcher prints make great farmhouse kitchen decor. I love this color! It’s not too bright, too rusty, too neon…it’s the perfect orange

As I get a chance to use these colors I’ll be reviewing them. Even though I got freebies I believe in honest reviews. I have high hopes because of how pleased I’ve been with “Sheepskin” on my coffee table and farmhouse kitchen table!

  1. I’m anxious to see these new colors. You’re right about the orange not being too bright. I see bold new colors in magazines but think some of them would do better as accent colors,such as your cute frame for the chicken. But the way, I just subscribed to Better Homes and Gardens for you for one year. Let me know when you start receiving them so I can be sure they are honoring my their cheapie gift subscription offer. Stay Calm and Keep Figuring It Out, Grammy
