My own child and I not too long ago began our own dream business of collecting and reviving furniture together with the amazing medium of paint. As we were discovering the idea of painting furniture, we discovered Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint and have not looked back! Just what a satisfaction to have discovered and launched directly into the world of colored furniture. As much as we comprehend, Annie Sloan created this specialized paint in her home country of England and introduced that there in 1990. Recently it’s taken America simply by surprise and the whole community of imaginative furniture painters are in amazement!
Important thus great to use is that opposite to other paint, you can paint directly onto items of furniture without having to remove or perfect that before hand. It goes on easily, dries quickly and most importantly, mud off magnificently in areas where you want to create the “distressed” seem.
We are searching forward to using this medium and discovering the options of how we can create new items of art from undesirable blah, brown furniture items.
Old-fashioned Milk Paint is yet another paint medium in which we are beginning to explore with, that has a texture and finish which can generate an authentic, vintage appear.
We love vintage and vintage furniture, or perhaps a piece of writing of furniture in which we can paint and offer that known more mature or affected appear.
We have painted many parts of furniture more than my personal life time for make use of in our home, although not therefore long ago, Karla and I made a decision to get it done on a complete time schedule. Right after lately reviving an old chest of drawers for her bedroom, right in our back lawn, the idea to do this as a business, dawned on us.
Many people might not really like the idea of decorated vintage furniture, however the parts that we like to replenish are the one that individuals no longer locate attractive. The ones giving us a challenge of how we can ensure it is stunning and interesting once again. The types that might end up in the land fill, prematurely.
So in essence, we are recycling, renewing, re-purposing and helping the earth a little bit in the same time!
