I am so excited about this new product!!!
ALL-IN-ONE sounds too good to be true…but I've used it people……and it is for REALZ!!!
Introducing Heritage Collection All In One Chalk Style Paint!
Heirloom Traditions Paint Company has developed a paint with a built-in primer and built-in wax for the time-conscious consumer….(that's me!!!). It is available in 12 European-inspired colors that offer a high-end finish.
This is a game changer for my business….and can be a game changer for you too! Heritage Collection All In One Chalk Style Paint products will cut down on your project time AND make your projects more approachable (like tackling those kitchen cabinets) with it's easy application and durable smooth finish!
I show you in the below photo…. a very large entry cabinet that I chose as my first project with this new product! (if you are interested in the entire story of WHY this gorgeous cabinet was painted…there is a video available at the end of this blog….where I give you the ENTIRE run down of the project).
I applied one coat of Cobblestone Gray using the True Applicator Sponge (which I highly recommend) and will be listed at the end of the blog in my "Shop Here" section. Here is the cabinet after the first coat of paint.
The paint is thick and creamy…and needs to be stirred very well for about 2 minutes prior to using to make sure all properties are well blended. It also dries very quickly. By the time I finished on one end..the end I started on was dry and able to accept the second coat. I used my chalk-type paint brush for this coat. And the second coat was my FINAL coat! Seriously….that was it! Two FAST coats….completely leveled smooth….and DONE! However….on this project….I was wanting some white-washed highlights….so the project continued…but had I just wanted the solid Cobblestone Gray finish…I would have been finished! Here is the final result after the highlights were added.
They recommend a full 24 hours of cure time. They also recommend a full 24 hours of cure time before applying a glaze or any other type of wash to the painted piece. I did not follow those instructions before applying my white wash highlights (I rarely adhere to any product instructions…duh)….and I had VERY little lift of the paint when using baby wipes directly to the fresh paint. I knew this would happen…and even WANTED it to happen as I was going for an aged finish…so a little wet distressing worked to my project advantage! You can see the exposed original surface in the photo below…and it's exactly the look I was after.
I am so impressed with this product…..and am honored to have the opportunity to promote and share it with my readers! The team at Heirloom Traditions Paint Company have put together two kits for you! They offer a Heritage Collection All In One Cabinet Restoration Kit and Heritage Collection All In One Furniture Restoration Kit. These kits take the guess work out of what to buy for your project.
