Chalk Paint®

Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan
Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint


Visit us at 7518 Hickman Rd in Des Moines!

New products:

Scrubby! Arriving next week! A natural soap infused scrubber that has an orange aroma. Great for cleaning and conditioning your paint brushes!

TSP – Degreaser for cleaning kitchen cabinets or other items that may have collected airborn grease. Rinse off with water, then denatured alcohol and you are ready to rehab your cabs with Chalk Paint®

Large Syringes – To measure paint amounts when mixing for a custom color. Or if you want to keep your can top clean for a tight fit, suction out paint with the syringe and put paint in separate container while painting.

Tip of the Month:

Want a super smooth finish that feels like silk to your touch? Buy 440-660 grit sandpaper and sand gently between Chalk Paint® coats. This removes even the faintest hint of brush stroke lines. Also be sure to water that second coat down just a tad with distilled water to help level your brush strokes. 0000 grade steel wool will do the same. But be sure to not apply lots of pressure or you may burnish the paint (making it shine) which makes it difficult to apply the wax. You may also sand gently after each coat of wax before polishing!
