Everyday Uses for Extraordinary Paint

1 May
Mr. Cane, owner of Cane Farm Furniture of Rosemont, NJ has been using Old Village Paints since the 1970’s. Something must be going right!   You can find his shop on Route 519 in Rosemont, NJ. 609-397-0606
Take a look around his shop with us!

I like the variety of colors on these pieces.  Which did you like best? Thank you Mr. Cane for sharing these photos with us!  If you are working on a spring project, we’d love to see it!  Share with us through email, or on our Facebook page.

We love this shop, the Bear Necessities, in Auburn, ME!  Come take a look around with us! This vintage market scale is gorgeous, I would love to have this in my kitchen.  Just so it doesn’t throw you off- the store is also referred to as Old Farmhouse Primitives.

These three clocks caught my eye, they could be perfect for a guest room, or any little nook in the house.

Look at these Primitive Colonial Treen Wood Plates and Flatware.  I haven’t seen anything exactly like these before.

Rittenhouse Ivory Cabinet Makeover

20 Jun

A lovely photo and note showed up in our inbox recently…

unnamed

“These cabinets are original to our 1957 ranch house and I love them.  You can keep wooden cabinets, I love color!    This is the second time we have painted them with your paint….last time about 20 years ago.  We could not be happier with the color or the way the paint went on.  We plan to enjoy these cabinets for the next 20 years.  Thanks for making  things the old fashioned way…meaning, made to last.”

Thank you! And, we must say, we are very impressed with your clean countertops as well!  We don’t know about you guys, but our kitchen countertops seem to attract stuff like magnets!  Thanks for using Old Village Paints– we love making a product that we can be so PROUD of!  If you’d like to see another kitchen makeover head over to this blog post from 2015

Primitive Furniture Preview

13 Jun

Today we wanted to share some photos of primitive pieces created by Chuck and Kathy Moore, owners of The Country Cupboard and Nature Run Wood Works in Ligonier, Pennsylvania.

Chuck and Kathy use Old Village Paint on their furniture because of the natural pigments in the paint, and the way the paints re-create the colors and feel of early American life.

This first photo is of a Ziders Cupboard.  The cupboard is painted Planation Red while the inside top section is painted with an Old Village Paint buttermilk white.  The interior is finished with a natural stain.

Next, a beautiful pie safe, modeled after those found in the US during the 1800’s.  I love the tin detailing!  This was painted Old Village Paint Black.

The last piece we wanted to share is a homestead table, painted Old Village Paint Loyalist Green.  I can think of about four different places in my home where I could use this!

If you’d like to visit Chuck and Kathy online– you can find them here: http://www.thecountrycupboards.com or stop by either of their two shops in person!  Tell them hello from Old Village Paints family.

Good wishes from our home to yours as we wrap up spring and move into summer!

Brilliant Last Minute Gift

22 Dec

We hope that during this Christmas season, you have been able to take/create moments of peace and joy.  “Getting everything done” or knowing that “everyone in my life is happy” is not a possible reality for most people.  But stopping, looking around for the joy, lighting some candles and listening to your favorite Christmas music by candlelight — that could happen!

In the spirit of a joyful, peaceful Christmas we thought we’d recommend a gift that could bring some interaction and perhaps even a little quiet to your holiday gathering.

A handheld chalkboard.  You can buy a chalkboard already created (we found this one at michaels.com,

or use chalk paint to paint your own.

Children can decorate the border around a chalkboard with simple painted designs, or just enjoy writing and drawing while dinner is cooking.  You can also suggest games like hangman, tic tac toe, or pictionary.

Our family at Laney’s Old Village Paints wishes you a very Merry Christmas season!

See Old Village Paint on Military Makeover!

13 Oct

A few months ago our president, Laney Landis, was invited to be a part of a wonderful project: to makeover a home for a veteran on Lifetime’s “Military Makeover”!  She donated all the paint for the home and even helped with the painting.  To see her, and a bit of the makeover- click on the link below. (In the clip Laney explains her personal connection to the US Armed Forces and why she’s so delighted to help honor a veteran.)
