Mother’s Day Hand Crafted Gift Ideas!

These decorative boxes can be built to spec. Above are just a couple of examples. Make your gift personal!!

Professionally handcrafted, MDF is used for the bottom to avoid warping and Wood Icing is used as a filler to create a smooth finish ready for paint!

Wood Icing is a superior alternative to wood putty.  It accepts sanding and painting like real wood.

Your choice of three types of hardware are available for the decorative boxes: Silver Cup Pull, Antique Cup Pull and Antique Knob Pull.

Tool Box – $49.99

1′ box – $33.99

2′ box – $37.99

Pictured above are just a sampling of the unique, hand crafted gifts we have at Chalk It Up Norcross!

Featured is a local artist, Miyeon K., who has recently shared her beautiful and delicate creations with us.  

Miyeon K. Stars are handcrafted star flowers made by using a centuries old art form know as origami which literally translates as “folding paper”.

A genuine Swarovski crystal ring is attached to the star, and you may hang the star as an ornament.  Simply loop the 20 inch ribbon included through the crystal ring.  The star also sits lovely as a centerpiece at home or the office.

Also in her collection are beautiful note cards adorned with the same origami decor!

Miyeon K. has lived in London and Seoul, and currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia.

Update That Piano With Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint®!

Pinterest searches for navy are up 80%. One of our favorite navy projects is this piano done by lifestyle blogger Holly of Love The Tompkins. Holly used Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® and Dark Chalk Paint® Wax to refinish a piano she snagged on a local buy/sell/trade page for a mere $30. Isn’t the final result simply stunning?

Easy DIY Decor Ideas!

For those who may be new to the world of Chalk Paint® and are hesitant to tackle a piece of furniture, we’ve compiled a handful of easy DIY décor ideas for your next project.

First up is a brushstroke painted lamp by lifestyle blogger Bee of Windgate Lane. Bee fell in love with a designer lamp but couldn’t swallow the $400 price tag – and why should she when she could recreate the look on her own? Armed with a $12 lamp she found at the craft store, Bee painted the base with a few coats of Pure White before adding haphazard swirls of Aubusson Blue to complete the look. After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

Tired of the boring old bread boards and wooden utensils sitting atop her kitchen counter, lifestyle and design blogger Katrina Chambers decided to give them a little hit of color with a combination of Antibes Green, Antoinette, Barcelona Orange, Provence, Graphite and Pure White. Once completely cured, both Chalk Paint® and Chalk Paint® Wax are food safe so Katrina can continue to use these when entertaining at home!

Another easy DIY décor idea is to upcycle a TV tray like lifestyle blogger Tiffany of offbeat + inspired did. Tiffany used Paris Grey and Old White to turn this $1 garage sale into a one of a kind piece. “There’s something about transforming what many see as junk into beautiful and functional décor,” she says. “Even items that appear simple or drab can be remade into a one of a kind piece.”

Last but certainly not least is a series of garden pots painted by Annie’s former Painter in Residence Beau Ford of Drip Designs Furniture in Western Australia. Beau refreshed some old garden pots she already had around using Coco, Provence, Greek Blue, Pure White and a custom berry red. Since she was going for a drippy look, she painted very sloppily to achieve the look she was going for – isn’t it awesome?
