DIY Decor has, in recent years, become super popular with everyone spending their free time heading off to the hardware shop, trawling markets and sourcing unique pieces via online auctions. Everyone wants to put their unique stamp onto their home and a really cheap and easy way to do this is via paint. Recently I discovered this amazing new paint product – a.scribe – traditional chalkboard paint but in a variety of bright and beautiful colours! What a fun way to brighten up your home – and it’s practical too! Spend some time browsing Pinterest and you’ll discover so many ways that chalkboards are being used – they are no longer only the domain of the school classroom!! Now days you can paint doors, walls, notice boards, and even furniture all with chalkboard paint….
a.scribe have an amazing assortment of colours to choose from namely Bright Blue, Mauve Grey, Apple Red, Grassy Green, Sunshine Yellow, Turquoise Sky, Midnight Navy, Deep Purple, Pastel Pink, Sage Green, Chocolate Brown and Classic Black. And not only do they offer the tubs of paint but they also stock a variety of ready made chalk boards in a variety of fun shapes and sizes (and colours of course!)
a.scribe currently is available to purchase via their online shop at www.ascribe.co.za or you can email them at email@example.com to place an order.
Now you know how much I love a good competition and I would be amiss if I didn’t offer one of my lovely readers the chance to discover this pretty paint for themselves!! You’ll be pleased to know that I will be giving away a.scribe products up to the value of R250!! The winner will be able to choose 3 a.scribe items – either pots of paint or pre-made items – in the colour and shape of their choice up to the value of the voucher.
