Creating a stylish, sustainable interior space is easier and cheaper than you may think. Do you frequent thrift stores and flea markets for furniture you can refine and refinish? Do you want to start?
Blue Sky Design Supply opened back in 2010 and has since become a place of inspiration and exploration. Creativity is plentiful at this shop, and better yet these folks love teaching people to mindfully create with passion, color, and texture. Sharing is caring.
When you visit this cool, cozy Elmwood boutique, you’ll find sustainable design supplies, curated wares, and hard-to-find specialty brands. The Annie Sloan line is popular across the globe, and we have access to it right in the Elmwood Village. Deemed one of Britain’s most influential female designers, 1,700 independent stockists located in 55 countries carry her Chalk Paint®, including these guys.
In need of a nudge in the right DIY direction? Embrace your creative side by attending one of their hands-on classes. From Chalk Paint® workshops to upcycled craft projects, these classes sound super fun and informative, too. Check out the full list of class/workshop options here!
If you’re confident enough to create on your own, Blue Sky has a refinishing alternative to priming and sanding – Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. It’s super easy to use, and it’s water-based, eco-friendly, and virtually odor-free. Yay! Blue Sky Design Supply is the official stockist for this product in the Buffalo region.
New to Chalk Paint®? It can be used on walls, floors, exterior surfaces, and even some metal and plastic surfaces. The colors are based on an 18th-century European palette. With 35 rich colors to pick from, the possibilities for mixing and matching are endless.
