Why Using Old Village Paint Cuts Your Labor & Time Investment

28 Mar

What sets Laney’s Old Village Paints apart from our competitors?

Our paint ingredients. 

The rich, deep colors found in each can of our paint are created with natural pigments.

Natural pigments come from the natural formation of color in nature, like rust or ocher.   These natural pigments are the same ingredient found in high quality artist paints.  That’s why Laney Landis, Old Village Paint owner, often calls Old Village Paint “artist paint in a can.”

Big box stores, like Lowes and Home Depot use a very different system for making paint.  They start with a tint base, usually clear or white, and then add in a “universal tint.”

Universal tints are manmade chemical colors, and they tend to be translucent.  Where you might need three or four coats of this type of paint to get a deep red, you’ll only need a single coat of our paint!  Cut hours of labor time and save money on your next project by trying Old Village Paint.

Another unique OVP trait? We still make paint in batches, just like we did over 197 years ago.  We mix up the natural earth pigments and the other paint ingredients and then pour it into waiting cans.

Just like you bake a batch of cookies, we mix up a batch of “solider blue” or “antique mustard.”  That’s why Laney’s Old Village Paints don’t need to be sold at a paint store, no mixing or tinting is required.  It can be sold right off the shelf.

When artists are painting a masterpiece, they use high quality paints.  They want to put down deep colors of paint with just a single stroke-and that’s what our customers can do with our paints.  So enjoy the deep natural pigments in our paints, they not only mean less cost and labor, but a more beautiful finished product.

Happy Spring! -Jenny

Cabinet Makeover with Colonial White Paint and Black Glaze

23 Jan

Today I’m sharing a bathroom cabinet makeover by ReVintaged Lemon.

“This is a beautiful bathroom but, the cabinetry just didn’t work for the new homeowner. We chose Old Village Paint in Colonial White and black glaze. This turned out absolutely beautiful! Love it! ” bathroombefore

To create this look, paint your cabinet and let dry.  To add the dual color detailing, wipe on your black glazing liquid and immediately wipe off the excess.  Some black paint will stay down in the nooks and crannies, and you will have this nice detail effect.  Questions? As always, feel free to give us a call! We’ll help you get the supplies you need shipped right to your door and on your way to finishing your project.  1-800-498-7687

Choosing a Neutral Paint Color

9 Jan

Neutral colors can provide a soothing, versitile backdrop for your home.  With  white, off-white, or creamy beige walls, you can change your artwork, furniture or accent pillows and blankets, without worrying about re-doing your paint colors.

Even neutrals can be very different from each other!  One thing you can ask yourself when choosing a neutral is — do I want a cool or warm undertone? Let’s see a few examples to help you get started.  “Colonial White” by Laney’s Old Village Paint, is a bright white acrylic latex paint with a cool undertone.

The “Steeple White” color is more beige, also an acrylic latex. It has a warm undertone.

Laney’s Old Village Paint buttermilk paint color “Corner Cupboard” is a creamy white with a warm yellow undertone.

As you can see, even within the category of neutrals, you have lots of different options, each of which can set a fresh canvas for your space.

We’re wishing you a wonderful 2017 and hope the year is starting off well.
