4 Gorgeous Kitchen Islands

19 Feb

A kitchen island can add organization, extra work surface and even extra seating.  I thought I’d gather up some amazing islands to inspire us today. This first island is the most elaborate I’ve ever seen!  I especially like the contrast of the blue color with the glossy wooden top.

Dreamy Island #2.  I love the built-in crates in this island, it has an industrial/farm kitchen feel.

Old Village Paints offers a line of stains and clear varnish that last and last and LAST.

Dreamy Kitchen Island #3.  The granite top on this island is so beautiful and I love the farmhouse spicket they’ve used at the sink.

Dreamy Kitchen Island #4.  This seems to combine table and island into one, and I love it!  I can imagine chopping veggies while talking with kids and friends, then settling down to a delicious but relaxed dinner.

Have You Been Looking For This Color? Introducing 3 New Paint Colors

Lighthouse Blue,

Cape Cod Gray,

and Bar Harbor Gray.

Ta da !

Our new Lighthouse Blue was inspired by a color found inside a historic home, the dining room  to be exact, restored by John Heintz in Richlantown, PA.

Cape Code Gray and Bar Harbor Gray were created in response to numerous requests from customers, and were first created for special restoration projects of historic buildings in the northeast.

All three colors are available in low luster satin finish in both oil or latex paints.

Choose Your Favorite Shade of Blue

27 Jan

The sky, the ocean, blueberries, sapphires, blue bells.  Blue is an opening and soothing color.  Someone I know once said “You’re either a blue person or you’re not. You love it or hate it.” I AM a blue person. I love the depth of blues and the variety.

At Old Village Paint we use natural pigments to create our blues, and we believe we have some pretty unique options that aren’t easy to match.

Which is your favorite shade? Why does it appeal to you? Where might you use it, combined with your own creativity?

Share your favorite shade of blue on our Facebook page! Or, is there a shade of blue we don’t have that you’d love to see? We’re always wanting to hear from our customers. Stay warm and cross your fingers for spring!

Welcome in 2018 With Fresh Green Colors

25 Dec

How do you welcome the new year in your home? Do you enjoy gathering with certain people, eating a special meal, rearranging furniture?

Once the new year is here I breathe a deep breath in. I am thankful I made it through the many events that surround the holidays and that we’re moving into a more peaceful month.  I also like to re-arrange furniture– just something to recognize I can start new things or introduce new patterns of being into my life.

To celebrate a brand new 365 days this year on the blog, I thought we’d look at a color that often means newness or growth– green!

Old Village Paints makes a number of different greens, including:

Forest Green

Does one of these colors appeal to you more than the others?

Here are a few of them in use:

Consider throwing open a window, airing out a room, and putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls.  It can be a wonderful way to make an old space feel new, and invite some new things into your life!

Create a Thanksgiving Mantle Display

30 Oct

Ready for some inspiration? Check out this beautiful fall mantle scape that I came across at Rustique Restoration (www.rustiquerestoration.blogspot.com)

_DSC6797-2

_DSC6800

From rustiquerestorations.blogspot.com

Let’s talk about some of the painting techniques you might need to create this look.
First, these shabby chic candlesticks. What if you have some plain white candlesticks and want to add an antique look?

To antique you can use Goopy Paint. It comes in three colors: Black, British Red, and Picture Frame Cream.

Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 6.59.22 PM

The above photo shows a piece painted with a Goopy British Red base coat, Antique Yellow On Top.

First, you add a base coat of one, or all three of those colors to the item you are antiquing. Goopy Paint is thick enough that the colors won’t run together, so you can add one, both, or all three in one step.

Second, you let the Goopy Paint dry.

Third, add a top coat of Old Village Paint (cream, black, whatever strikes your fancy), covering the entire piece, including the spots you painted with Goopy Paint.

Finally, when you sand the piece, the spots where Goopy Paint was standing up, and you’ll see that color underneath. Suddenly, it looks like you have an antique piece that had many different paint colors used on it over time, (as many as four different colors) and you only painted two layers!

I also wanted to remind you that if you need Black Board paint, to help create something like this cool framed chalkboard shown in these photos…

_DSC6810

Found on rustiquerestoration.blogspot.com

We’ve got some really durable blackboard paint that you could use. (Get your blackboard paint here)

We hope you have fun decorating your home for fall, bring some of the amazing beauty of this season inside! And, as always, we’d love to see your photos!
