The paint they use in heaven.

Maison Blanche paint

At the Becoming Conference this year, I met Annie.  She is the owner and creator of Maison Blanche Paint Company.  I fell in love with her, her staff, and now I have fallen in love with her paint.

This mom of 4 and wife of an ex army man, has created a paint that I’m pretty sure they use in heaven.  Seriously, while using this paint I was trying to think of words to describe how wonderful it is.  We all know that writing is not my strength, so I’ll just say this stuff is AWESOME!!!!  It was so silky and smooth going on!  It was soooo easy and fun to apply that I did not say one single bad word while working with this paint.  It went on like butter folks!  I told you I was a wiz with words!

And just when I thought I couldn’t be more amazed, I used Maison Blanche Company Antique Wax.  I have to admit when painting furniture the protective coat, the last step, is my least favorite.  I have the hardest time with polyurethane and seem to even make mistakes with wax.  And you can definitely forgot about using tinted wax, I just threw out some dark wax because I made a mess of it every time I got near that can.  But this wax was soooooo easy to use, it was fool proof or Angela proof!!!  I wiped the wax on with a cloth, waited 15 minutes, and then buffed.  I looked beautiful!  Not one streak and it comes in 4 shades: clear, amber, light brown, and dark brown.  Picture me dancing around my sewing room with a can of wax, because that’s exactly what I did.

And check out these colors!!!  The paint colors have been inspired by Annie’s South Louisiana, Cajun & French Creole heritage. A southern belle at heart, I love her and I love these colors.  I just received Robin’s Egg, Maison White, and Jolie Blonde in the mail last week.

Stepping out of my comfort zone or my blue zone, I used Jolie Blonde to paint this piece for a client.  It’s so much more fun to say client then my neighbor!  hahahaha!

Now that Maison Blanche Paint and I are best friends, I am going to paint the world. First up,  I’m ready to tackle all my black furniture I’ve been putting off painting! Yep, I’m thinking it’s time for a change.  Maybe first I should start with vacuuming up some of that dog hair off my couch.  You could weave a sweater out of all that hair!  And for the record, does anyone else have a hard time spelling vacuum?  That my friends is a crazy word.

    Good morning Angela
    I’ve never tried that paint but I think I’ll have to. I love the variety of colors compared to Annie Sloan’s chalk paint. And I find her wax to be very hard. I don’t like the waxing part of it either.
    The piece you did is stunning. It looks like the same style as the piece I just painted. Any suggestions on how to go about finding customers to paint for?
    I am getting ready for a yard sale tomorrow. I have way too much stuff!
    Hope you enjoy this beautiful weather today!

      Hi Rhondi!!!
      Hmmmmmm I really think it’s word of mouth. It seems like if you do one you get a few referrels from that one piece and then it just gets bigger and bigger. Maybe do a piece for a friend that has lots of people over to her home. That way lots of people will see your work and wonder where they can get a piece like the one she has! Make sense!?!?

    I see you dancing around a la Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady. “I could have waxed all night, I could have waxed all night, And still have waxed some more!” (It’s better than envisioning you as Mr. Miyagi. “Wax on. Wax off.”) And yes- the word vacuum has challenged me for years. I have always felt it needed 2 C’s, but apparently it doesn’t. Have fun with your new paint!

    Hey Angela,
    I met you in Asheville as well…I made the knife, fork and spoon. I’m so glad you love the paint…it is a dream. You did a great job on the Jolie Blonde piece. Can’t wait to see what you do next! Thanks, Jody ;)

    I’ve been seeing this paint “pop up” in ads and posts. That it is smooth is a plus. But does it stick say to laminate fake wood?? Now for the opinion. Love the client’s blonde you did. Looked great! But my expert eye ( I did have first grade art for fourteen years taught by Mrs. Fleming who never repeated a project and we used many art mediums) thus I am an expert (cough), and as I looked around your room that is colorful yet now subdued, I feel like some
    Creme De Menthe should be added. The name? I’m not from the south so I’ve read it and just guessed at the way to say it….but doesn’t it sound so oh? Early 60’s sophisticated movie stars?? And then a smudge of light brown wax that you say covers that smooth as butter paint so well and easily….but who is to say you can’t do something in butter as well. Oops I mean blonde. I reeeeeally wish I could paint the inside of my 1980’s bookcases. But oh dear…blonde? Or Creme de Menthe?!!! Hmmm….I’d probably go with the CDM just for its name. And I used to be able to spell vacuum but now I let spell check do all the work for me. Sheriff. Diesel. Those are weird too. Now I’m supposed to be resting so I’d best close….oh. The dog hair doesn’t show in photos so you don’t have to tell us. Just FYI. Your room looks immaculate!

    Hey – who says you don’t have a strength in writing!? You certainly do! I so enjoyed reading this post – you are so funny! And you really do have a way with words!…very natural. I love the yellow, and I usually hate yellow! Your “client” must be so happy! Thanks for writing about this new paint – the colors are wonderful! Oh, and I still like blue best! Can’t wait to see what else you paint around the house! Great post!!
