Why? Coco’s Chalky Paints!

Last week, I had the chance to meet the owner of Coco’s Chalky Paints, a local businesswoman who has a beautiful storefront in the 5th Street Arcades.

Built in 1898, the 5th Street Arcades maintain the beautiful architecture of the time but are filled with fun and functional modern stores. Coco’s Chalky Paints inhabits a unqiue and lovely space, which allows space for not only a store, but also chalk painting workshops in the future.

Coco’s Chalky Paints has both pre-mixed chalk paint in a variety of colors, but also powder that can be mixed into any paint to change it into chalk paint. Painting a whole room? Purchase any flat or latex paint and mix in Coco’s Powder to create chalk paint.

Just getting started? Coco’s Little Black Bag has all the tools you need to mix up your first batch!

I was amazed at how much you can do with chalk paint! The entire store is filled with items she has painted. She even has furniture you can pick out and have her paint for you!

Beyond just the Coco’s Chalky Paints, the store offers small home decor items like throw pillows, lamps, and more.

Coco’s Chalky Paints also gives back to the community, by painting and donating furniture items to those in need. Every purchase funds more donated furniture!

The store is lovely; the product is fun and functional; and the owner is an absolute delight! Stop in to Coco’s Chalky Paints today (or shop online)!

    I might be a little biased (husband) but I have first hand seen this place transform into the amazing place that it is…she has literally put her blood, sweat and tears into making a vision a reality. All with a generous heart to pay part of the profits forward to some needy mom. She’s making a difference by sharing her Gift and bringing joy to anyone that crosses her path.

      Coco’s store is the best store ever, and it really worth stopping in. Everything is unique in her store and she is making different types of Chalk paints to make things look amazing. I’m really proud of what she did and what she is doing. Also, I moved to a new apartment and she helped me with furnitures, decorations and it looks exactly what I want. Coco is really an amazing women who put her all efforts to come up with a really great things. You guys should visit her store someday and you won’t regret it :)!

    What a beautiful store. I love the concept. The owner was wonderful. I had so many questions because i DIY a lot and she answered all of my questions and i even got a few DIY tips and tricks from her. I’m currently working on a piece with coco’s chalky paint, and it’s looking amazing. I’m also looking forward to her workshops.
