If you've ever pulled out a can of Pure White Chalk Paint® then you know first hand it isn't one of those Annie Sloan paint colors that goes on effortlessly with just one coat. If anyone tells you it is a one coat color, they are lying. LYING I TELL YA'! I've never...

Since 1990…

Caitlin and I were talking earlier this week and I was telling her that I feel like we should have some sort of big, epic 2018 announcement to share! But, that's not the case. I'm relishing the fact that after seven years of business, we are at a point where things...
