Maison Blanche Paint



The word La Craie is French for “the chalk.”  Our exclusive formula contains calicium carbonate allowing adhesion to almost any surface. Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint was designed with you, the creative and conscious consumer, in mind.

Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint dries to a soft, velvety finish and is extremely low in organic volatile compounds, making it a green and eco-friendly alternative to oil based paints so often used on furniture. This water based paint has little to no odor; you can create your masterpiece just about anywhere without fear of reprisal from your delicate senses.

Maison Blanche has been carefully refined and perfected to the last drop. It has been specially formulated for painting furniture, cabinetry, and trim. Silky and smooth, the paint can be applied using a variety of techniques in addition to ‘straight from the can.’  It can also be used to top off any existing furniture finish, without the need for stripping, sanding, or priming. It will adhere to most surfaces. Add a bit of water and try it as a color wash. If you prefer your paint a bit thicker, simply leave the lid off for awhile. Use one color or layer several. Finish and protect with either the Antiquing or Lime waxes.

    Is this paint available in Canada?

  2. Arlette, at this time there are not any Canadian retailers of La Craie Paint. Hopefully soon, though!!

    I would love to try this paint ASAP but funds are low. I clean homes for a living but this is my passion and I have some orders coming in and I was curios about then sample sizes and how easy they last? And the wax looks beautiful but have no clue on price and how they look or how long they may last. Please help me???

    • Hi Donna,
      The sample sizes are 4oz which is sufficient to paint an end table, nightstand, or chair or similar sized piece of furniture. The wax is amazingly easy to use. The wax is $21.95 per tin. You do not have to use the clear and dark in conjunction with each other (so you’re saving time and money). So, you just paint on the wax, let it dry for an hour and then buff with an old t shirt.

    This is the first time I have heard of this chalk paint how is it different from the Annie Sloan chalk?

    • La Craie (which means “the chalk” in French) is similar in that there is no need to prime or sand. It is a thicker, more premium formula however, and does not include a drying agent. The paint still dries very quickly but you will not get those nasty chalk balls that occur when the paint dries TOO quickly. Of course, the color chart is different. The colors are a beautiful, subtle color pallet, which includes a true black color called “wrought iron.” Additionally, the waxes come in four colors — clear, amber, light brown, dark brown. Another difference is that you do not have to use the dark brown in conjunction with the clear wax. You can use the dark wax by itself, so you’ll be saving time and $. It is a beautiful paint that results in a wonderfully sophisticated finish. You will love it!!

    I have used the Annie Sloan and the Maison Blanche and my favorite is THE MAISON BLANCHE!!!! It dries so smooth like velvet it goes on so smooth. This is the BEST by far!

    Is this paint available in Singapore?

    • Currently Maison Blanche is only in the United States and Canada. Potentially it could be shipped to Singapore, shipping costs would likely be more expensive though.

      • Currently the only retailer in Canada is:
        Flow Lifestyle
        598 Concession St.
        Hamilton, Ontario, CA L8V1B3

        You can order online through us as well. Delivery would take about 5 business days. If you want to email me your address I can get a shipping quote for you, the test quote I did put a box with four quarts of paint at $40USD.

        Hope this helps! If you have any further questions just ask. 🙂

    Do you sell new unopened cans of Maison Blanche? It might sound silly but I have ordered cams from two other retailers and they had both been opened and used. 🙁
    Thank you

    Which type Maison Blanche paint do you recommend for Kitchen cabinets? The Lime? Is it easy to sand for the distressed look? Thank you!!!

    • It really depends on the look you are wanting. The lime paint naturally gives a multi-tone look, and you can distress it to add to the look of uniqueness. There are natural anti-mold/fungus/bacterial properties to the Lime Paint, so it is great for kitchens and bathrooms. The lime paint will only need one coat, but you do have to have a primer. The main line works great as your priming layer. You will end up painting two coats with either line of Maison Blanche paint. Both lines should sand easily for the distressed look. One thing I also recommend is degreasing your cabinets before starting. Even the cleanest of homes will need this as grease will build up over time and it acts as a resist. Hope this helps!

    Do you need to buy paint? Probably not since you sell it. Strange, I got an email requesting to buy paint??

    Is this paint safe to use on a baby’s crib?
