People who use our paint for the first time are often shocked at the difference between our paints and those they have used in the past. I think of it as the difference between canned and fresh pineapple. Do you remember the first time you had fresh pineapple? I do– and I remember thinking- this isn’t pineapple, this is– amazing!!! If you’ve never tried Old Village Paints before, you should see what you’ve been missing.
Our process for making paint is very different than that of the big box stores, and it creates a very different product. One that gives superior coverage and lasts longer.
When I was in my twenties, we had to buy the cheapest option on everything. For some things it worked, and for others it meant we were going right back to the store 6 months later for a replacement. Now, when I do projects at home, I use Old Village Paints, and enjoy knowing I won’t need to repaint for many, many years! Here’s one customer’s note to us:
“We painted our house with Old Village Paint 26 years ago and it was so easy to use. It really did go on like butter. When we sold our house the paint still looked so good the buyers asked us if we had just painted! We told them “No we used Old Village Paint 26 years ago!” Your paint is wonderful! Now we have moved and we won’t use anything else. Thank you for making such a quality product.” Carla Gerdes, Bucks County, PA
Wishing you a wonderful beginning to fall, and happy painting! If you try Old Village Paints for the first time, we would love to hear your experience, and see photos of your before and after project.
Could an outdoor bench help you enjoy a favorite spot in your yard? With a book, a cup of coffee or tea, a best friend, or a furry friend? Or perhaps you could simply sit down and focus on the the trees, the color of the sky, and the beauty around you.
I have seen many benches in various home improvement stores, although my favorites are in antique stores! You can find one already ready for use, like this one by Rustic Designs and Art, or find and old one, and repaint it yourself.
The nice thing about repainting a bench yourself, is that you get to choose the color! Provence yellow, sage green, lavender, choose something unique and fabulous! These are just a few of our historic paint colors, and they are safe to use indoors and out.

Roger Stacey from Painted Hutch Primitives uses Laney’s Old Village Paints for his beautiful primitive pieces, and this week he sent us some new items that we wanted to share. Mini bench candle holders.
“I made [and] painted them in Antique Sage Green, Salem Brick, Soldier Blue,Valley Forge Mustard, and Satin Black. The actual candle holder is attached to the mini bench with a berry and rusty star wreath making it an all in one candle holder. The mini benches can also be bought separate and candle bought separate as well.” explains Roger.
Roger, these are beautiful!
Roger has also done jelly cupboards:
And a dry sink . . .
Thanks for using Laney’s Old Village Paints to finish off your primitive pieces Roger- and for sharing these with us.
I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin
