Chalk & Cheese Paint and Decor – the name conveys a sense of being different from the norm. At the same time it brings together the reason why we started this venture. A love of Chalk Paint.
When an ideal house became available in the seaside town of Strand, South Africa, we joined up with the Interior design firm of Alpha Design Associates and transformed the house into a combination of design studio, showroom and workshop. A home away from home where customers and friends can relax. Winters are particularly cozy around the fire place. In summer, the airconditioner takes care of the heat.
Chalk Paint was the paint product of choice due to how versatile and creative a medium it is. We decided not to sell only one brand of Chalk Paint but rather a range of tried and tested brands. Hall’s, Dala, Harlequin, Granny B’s all bring something unique to the mix. This also allows us to offer many more colours that our customers can choose from. The beauty of Chalk Paint is that anyone can use it. It requires little or no surface preparation and, after applying different types of waxes and sealers, you end up with a durable finish. Ideal for upscaling that old piece of furniture.
We not only sell chalk paint …..we also sell embellishments and stencils. These two products complement the chalk painting process and together with some imagination, transform furniture, walls, doors, headboards and more into bespoke works of art.
We manufacture our own embellishments which can be purchased in-store or from this on-line store.
We hope to offer paint and stencils on-line in the near future.
In addition to products, our staff hold regular workshops in chalk painting techniques.
