I painted my first piece in my 20s (I’m 41 now). It was a nightstand I found on the side of the road. Back then I used latex because I thought “paint was paint”. A few years ago when I first began this blog, I discovered Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and I. was. hooked. I quickly learned that paint isn’t just paint. As with cars, there are different classes: there are Cadillacs and then there are Hondas. I had found one of the Cadillacs of paint.
I painted everything I could get my hands on. You know what I’m talking about!! It was actually Marian Parsons’ blog, Miss Mustard Seed, where I first read about Chalk Paint® and saw what it could do. If you would have told me that I’d have a store and would be carrying not only Chalk Paint® but also Marian’s line of paint (Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint), I would have told you you were nuts. But here we are.
Back in the Spring of 2014 when we first opened our newest brick and mortar location, we talked about the possibility of carrying another line of paint. We didn’t need to carry another line, but we knew it would be beneficial to our customers. Options are always nice! I’m a consumer too, and I know I like options. I filled out the application to carry Chalk Paint® in April of 2014 and was accepted, but wasn’t ready to pull the trigger. I wanted to explore all of our options and ensure that my final decision would be to carry the absolute best and something I could stand behind with all that I am. So I began contacting various paint companies to try their products. I tried many other paint lines and products and we even retailed Fusion Mineral Paint for a minute. But I just kept coming back. In the end, it all came down to wanting products that can be easily manipulated for many different looks. So in December of 2014 we signed our contract and officially became a retailer for Chalk Paint®. And we are so proud of this fact!
Last week I traveled down to New Orleans to the headquarters of Unfolded and attended the required Retailer Training.
It was incredible. There were a lot of other store owners there that had also carried other paint lines and then finally changed their minds and decided to carry Chalk Paint® right along with me.
I even got to explore the French Quarter a little bit and found some jaw-dropping antique stores:
One of the best parts of the trip was being able to walk outside with only a light jacket in January! That never happens here in Wisconsin in January, I can assure you of that!
The whole training experience was amazing. The staff is top notch and the other retailers were equally amazing. I had a great time, and I even managed to get a little rest. But the best part of all of this is the fact that we now offer two of the best paint products (Chalk Paint® & Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint) on the market in our store, and in our online shop! We are so grateful and we’re over the moon. Not to mention that I get to paint, once again, with one of the very first paints I tried when I began this blog journey. Somebody pinch me!
