So easy a kid can do it!

Today we are sharing a Before & After our {verdigreen} shop elves did. So, full disclosure: my boys have grown up furniture picking and painting so they have more than typical kid-experience choosing color and painting. We bought a pine IKEA Rast dresser to organize their bedroom before school starts & my big guy decided […]

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 […]
