About Chalky Paints & Finishes

A long-time fan of fixing up garage sale furniture with beautiful paint techniques, I got a thrill out of turning that discarded chair or dresser into a new prized conversation piece.

Chalky Paints & Finishes was born because industry-standard paint wasn’t cutting it. I thought if I used quality name brand latex paint, I’d get good results. But, I was quick to realize that most of these paints would chip off at the slightest scrape.

I partnered with a paint artisan with over 35 years of knowledge who handcrafts my paint and finishes using only safe, natural ingredients. All of my products are easy-to-use and made specifically for projects on vintage, re-purposed or distressed furniture without having the prep work beforehand.

Most name-brand waxes, especially hard waxes, are difficult to work with, and give off a toxic odor that can linger for up to six months. With my products, not only is this odor a thing of the past – no rubbing or buffing is needed to finalize your new favorite piece of furniture.

Chalky Paints & Finishes non-toxic products make it fun, safe, easy and affordable for you to create a distressed, stylish furniture piece, even if you've never painted something before.

If the paints and finishes weren’t easy enough to use, I am readily available via e-mail, messenger or phone to personally answer any of your questions on paint design, color choice or any other questions you have about your DIY paint project.

In a world of messy, toxic paint, Chalky Paints & Finishes is a breath of fresh artistic air.
