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 […]

The Tutorialist – Layered and Luxe

A friend of mine (& fellow decorative painter) asked about this finish today and I couldn’t believe I never posted the tutorial! Things have been really busy with {verdigreen} because of all the design work we’ve taken on, and it somehow slipped through the cracks…but this was a fan favorite for sure so here’s the […]

French Linen Secretary – French Style

We are currently working on the most beautiful custom kitchen – part of which is styling a secretary in the adjoining breakfast nook to fit cohesively within the finish palette. The original finish on the secretary was the reproduction French Provincial fruitwood from the 60s and in need of some updating. After consulting with the […]

Painted Custom Headboard

We LOVE an ornate headboard! We purchased this beautiful hand carved antique (you should have seen the footboard!) with the intention of painting it to sell in the shop but before we could do much to it aside from base-coat it, a client walked in who had to have it for her new home in […]

{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®. […]

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 […]

The Tutorialist – Stencils for All

  Stencils are one of the biggest surprises when it comes to Chalk Paint® projects. I generally only associated stencils with the block letters and numbers kits that I used for scrapbooking as a preteen. If you can relate, check out our extensive selection of stencils at our shop(s). Oh, and while you’re there, take a […]
