Paint Project – Stenciling Wallpaper with Chalk Paint

Our design firm (fringe) was hired to redesign the signature suites at The Lexington Hotel in NYC. One of the suites, The Godfrey, needed a masculine treatment to a bedroom wall…but we weren’t feeling a new wallpaper so we chose a Royal Design Stencil, mixed  Giverny & Napoleonic Blue and created our own! Here are […]

Tinting with Old White

If you have come into our shop, you have likely seen our “Pantone strip” wall of Florence lightened with Pure White. We also have the handiest visuals of […]

{verdigreen} nyc at NYFW

We had the pleasure (and honor) of sponsoring talented designer, Irina Shabayeva, for her New York Fashion Week show on Sunday. We met Irina because she was a neighbor to our East Village shop. She sampled some paint (she paints her lovely gowns) and promptly fell in love, as we all do, with Annie Sloan! […]

You Tube – Tune In!

I have been told (asked? not really…not with my customers! lol) repeatedly to film more tutorials and y’all know I am not so comfortable in front of a camera but I have finally submitted to creating them because I have found it so helpful to refer to them at the shop. I am going to […]

Shibori with Annie Sloan paint

There are days (ok, most days) when the daily tasks involved with owning a small business/retail shop are more than I can muster the energy for. I just can’t help it, it’s the creative in me. I need an art outlet – or an artlet, if you will. 🙂 Ha! Enter: dying fabric with Chalk Paint®. […]

Black Wax & Dark Wax: Staining Wood

Since Black Wax was announced, we have had several customers request demos (which we will gladly and freely provide in our shops) regarding the difference between the two so we quickly created this Facebook video to hopefully answer questions about using the two waxes as a wood stain. Raw wood is really beautiful stained with […]

Tints

We are often asked about mixing colors with Annie Sloan paint and if it is easy or not. Our answer is YES!!! So easy and such a beautiful result, every time, because Annie Sloan colors do not “muddy” when mixed. We love showing our customers how beautiful they are mixed together but a simple way […]

Just know that we have invested our […]

Modern Retro inspired paint project

We were inspired by the Modern Retro look (Chapter 3) of Annie Sloan’s book: Room Recipes. Here’s a quick and easy tutorial video on […]
