You showed you!


Y’all…it’s about to get real.
I truly, truly love this video and teared up watching it (let’s blame preggo hormones), for a few reasons. First, because it truly shows what I, as well as many of you, have felt and thought at one point or another.

I started using Chalk Paint® and Milk Paint during a very difficult period in my life; a period in which I didn’t believe in myself at all, especially creatively. It took a wonderful artist believing in me and teaching me; and me giving myself the freedom to try, to believe that I could create something beautiful…both artistically and in my life. My first project piece was an emotional roller coaster of “what am I doing?!” and ended with “wow…I did this, I actually did this, and it looks awesome!”

I also love this video because this is exactly why The Color Shop exists today. To help guide you and hopefully empower YOU to step outside that comfort zone (we so often and easily hole up in) to create something beautiful – for your home, for your family…and most importantly, for yourself.

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of your project, call us! We’ve been there and are here to help you!

It’s Starting to Look a lot Like Spring…

I just couldn’t help myself with this dresser.  I sat there for weeks (yes, folks…weeks) staring at this dresser thinking “what color should you be?”  Finally it hit me…Duck Egg is such a lovely little Spring color, and we need a little Spring around here! […]

Hello, Portland!

Hi there, Portland (and everyone else)! I think the best thing about choosing to be in a more creative profession, is that I can stop pretending I understand technology!  Yesterday I spent hours working on this website and a new blog post for ya, but somehow […]
