There's no denying the fact that chalk paint is a popular favourite amongst DIYers. Last September, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting the co-founder of The FAT Paint Company, Victoria. Based in BC, Victoria and her brother, Bradford, have created a fabulous line of chalk-style paint. Would you believe that the original lab was Victoria's kitchen and that they used her kitchenaid mixer to whip up batches of paint?! True story.
I used Orangeapalooza on a frame in kiddo 1's bedroom. I didn't use the wax for this project because I loved the finish of the paint on it's own. Such a fan of the orange + green + blue combo!
You all know just how much I love pink, so without a doubt, I was excited to use Blushing Bombshell asap! It's gorgeous and I may have plans to use it elsewhere in the house in the near future! ;)
You can see more photos of pieces painted with the colours from the collection here.
The beauty of chalk paint is that it allows you to easily distress your pieces with a little sanding. The wax (a little goes a long way) gives your pieces the protection that they need. However, I think that the most brilliant part is the minimal prep work that's required prior to painting and that the wait time between coats is only 20 mins!
