|I was so excited last week when I got my hands on the new chalk based paint called La Craie by the Maison Blanche Paint Company!|
|I only purchased one quart and not in a fun color but in a color I needed. I know bummer!;)|
|I just love how pretty the cans are!|
|This color is called Le Bonne Terre and is so pretty. I would say it is a cross between AS Old White and Old Ochre. It looks more creamy than the color chart.|
|I wanted to see just how this paint compared to my other beloved paints so I pulled out a project that has been patiently waiting in the garage.|
|Here is the full before. I decided to take the mirror apart instead of keeping it as one piece.|
|La Craie is thicker than the other chalk based paints out there which I like a lot. You can always thin it out if you need to by dipping the tip of your brush in some water.|
|It went on as smooth as any other chalk based paint I have used and sanded out just as well too.|
|I decided to make a new mirror with the side mirrors. I just attached them together on the back with brackets. |
Yep, La Craie chalk based paint will be added to my paint supply for sure! The Maison Blanche Paint COmpany does not have the paint on their site yet to sell. They are still working on the site but if you go to their FB page you can find retailers where you can order it from. My local retailer has not even had a chance to get it on her site yet either. It runs $38.95 a quart.
And just in case anybody wants to know this is an UNSPONSORED post. Just my two cents about a fabulous new paint!:) I am working on teaming up with my local retailer for a giveaway because I liked it so much so stay tuned! I have to set up a give away page first though since that will be sponsored.
