The perfect treat for summer– a Kindle Fire–is the prize in our latest giveaway. While you are at the pool or beach, you can borrow books from your library, or buy them from amazon. You’ll have thousands of books at your beck and call that you can instantly download and read. I take mine to the beach, and enjoy carrying just one small item instead of several heavy books.
To enter our giveaway all you need to do is send us a photo of something you painted with Old Village Paints! We’ll choose a winner July 1st and send you the Kindle! Send your photo to email@example.com We hope you win!
Ready to freshen up your painted furniture or degrease your kitchen cabinets? Here are a few natural cleaning mixes that are made from items you probably already have around the house. When I use these, I add in a few drops of orange, lemon or peppermint oil, and get that wonderful “clean” smell without harsh chemicals!
Painted or unfinished wood: 2-3 tablespoons of white vinegar added to a small bucket of water.
Painted or finished wood: One part white vinegar, one part olive or coconut oil.
Kitchen Cabinet Degreaser
2 cups water, 2 tablespoons dish soap and 1 cup white vinegar.
It’s spring! And my kids are delighted to be spending more playtime outside. If you have little ones, or grandchildren, or next door neighbors who love to visit . . . check out these beautiful and unusual outdoor playhouses.
And remember our Buttermilk, Acrylic and Latex paints are strong enough to hold up to children and the great outdoors!
I love this one! The little antique mailbox next to the door is the clenched for me! It would be a great place to receive sweet notes, or little snack surprises!
And last, but not least, look at this primitive playhouse I found!
