A Paint Wish

I.Love.Paint. There, I said it. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram then this is no surprise to you. I work with paint everyday. My one wish? That there were places in my immediate area that carry specialty paints, like chalk paint or milk paint, or even the paint that comes in ridiculously cute mason jars {what is it with mason jar packaging that we go crazy for?!}

This leads to my second wish...

I wish I could carry a paint line. For real. Like sell the paint in my booth. Have fun little classes teaching people how to paint their furniture. To go to fun classes and workshops to drool over learn from other painters. This is where my happy place is, painting and distressing.

Clearly my second wish would fulfill my first wish. I have begun researching paint lines that are looking for retailers I've realized that it's overwhelming. The upfront costs, the quality of the paint, is this the type of paint people in my area are looking for?

This is where I turn to you for help. What paint do you wish was available locally? What paint have you tried and loved/hated? Send them all to me, the big lines, the small and struggling line, even the line that you may be mixing in your kitchen right now! Meanwhile, I'll be here collecting every penny I find for my wish jar.


  1. Make your own line!!! Why work for someone else's dream when you can make your own come true…If Annie Sloan and Miss Mustard Seed make it, why can't you!!!!

    1. Awww...thanks Kelly! Maybe I need to start playing around with paint colors and recipes in my spare time! ;)

  2. You probably know what I'm going to say here...but I so wish Annie Sloan was carried here. And Miss Mustard Seed, too. And I haven't tried it, but I've heard awesome things about FAT Paint. :)
