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.
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!
