Creative collaboration - Chalk Design

Chalk Design's unique painted concrete pots and homewares customised with your choice of Resene coloursJess and Sally, are two neighbours that became friends over a shared driveway, where their children loved to draw with chalk.

This friendship and their children's love of chalk, has evolved into their home based business, Chalk Design, crafting concrete pots and homewares since early 2015.

All of their products are 100% made by them, from start to finish. Each and every product they handpaint and finish in their studio.

An evolving range of pots and homewares are made to order and designs are carefully painted on using Resene colours in Resene Lumbersider. The products are then sealed with Resene Clearcoat UVS inside and out for protection from the sun, dirt and dust so they are suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

The colour palette is updated frequently or you can choose your preferred Resene colour for your pot to complement your own colour palette. Some of their current favourite colours are Resene Half Smalt Blue (green blue), Resene Clementine Orange(persimmon orange), Resene All Black (deep black) and Resene Sea Fog (greyed white).
