Outdoor Paint That’s Easy To Work With & Lasts, and lasts, and lasts.

21 Feb

We love hearing from our customers!

“.. our painters prepped the new wood, applied a Latex base coat and two coats of Old Village Acrylic Latex, color Steeple White. We are absolutely thrilled with the results. The finish of the paint and the color we chose is beyond our expectations. It is truly an outstanding completion to our new (and I might add costly) sliding French door installation.

As I mentioned to you, our trim painters, who are highly regarded and coveted in this area stated that it was the nicest paint they had ever worked with, both in quality of coverage and ease of application. Quite a recommendation from people who do nothing but apply various suppliers paint every day.”

Sincerely,
Chris & Sylvi Wilkin
Hudson, Quebec, Canada

Thanks Chris & Sylvi.  For a paint that will withstand the rain, wind, snow and sun of the outdoors, check out our acrylic latex paints! Shop here!

Old Village Paint Colors

How is our paint different from our competitors? It’s all about ingredients.  The rich, deep colors found in each can of our paint originate from 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.”  So whether you are painting a large area . . .

Or something smaller, you’re project will end up with a vibrant color, that is also  incredibly high quality– a durable finish that will last and last and LAST!

Old Village Paints also has a whitewash paint that customers use  on their interior walls, and exterior brick. Of course, it could also be used on floors, furniture, terra cotta planters, mirrors, trim, ceilings, exterior walls, craft projects . . . .

Old Village Paint Whitewash is absolutely safe for interior and exterior home use. We use the word “simulated” on our whitewash because our paint doesn’t include some harsh chemicals that were historically a part of whitewash.

What outdoor wall, set of shutters or piece of furniture in your household could use a fresh coat of paint?

What Farm Table Style Are You?

16 Jan

Do you enjoy those quizzes that pop up online or are printed in magazines?  I’m afraid we don’t have a list of questions for you today, but take a look at these three farm table style options and monitor your heart rate.  Which is most exciting to you?

1. Traditional. 

traditional

For this look you could find an unpainted farm table, (or a finished one that you sand) and then rub it with our clear or colored Old Village Paste Stain.  One coat of paste stain provides a low-luster, hand-rubbed patina. Subsequent coats provide greater depth of colour, greater surface protection and higher gloss. Paste stain can also be buffed or polished. White provides a beautiful bleached-wood or pickled effect. You can choose from these finishes:

For more directions on this process:click here!  (http://www.old-village.com/prod_paste_stain.html)

2. Shabby Chic.  This style offers a sealed but natural top and a painted base.  (I love this one! It’s what I have at my house!) For this you’d use the sealing directions above on the top portion, and choose a glaze, white pickle finish or paint for the bottom portion.

3. Accent farm table.  For this table you’ll pick a bright color to add joie de vivre to your space!

Choose from any of these colors:I think antique yellow, rittenhouse red or antique sage green might be fun for an accent piece!

Another option would be to use chairs as your accent pieces:

I found my farm table that seats twelve at an unfinished wood furniture store for a very reasonable price.   You can look for something similar near you, or keep an eye out at antique malls, yard sales and in re-sale newspapers and websites.

Do you have a farm table in your home? We’d love to see photos!

Dual Tone Kitchen & A Custom Color

27 Dec

We love to see what people do with our paint, so take a quick tour with us of several different homes where Old Village Paint was used to bring beauty and long-lasting durability to cabinets, furniture and walls.  First, look at these beautiful cabinets painted #1745 Navy Blue.

This sideboard, by Roger S Wright Furniture is covered in #1726 Black, what a rich color!

I love this next kitchen, it looks so comfortable and welcoming, without sacrificing charm and style!  The lower cabinets are Rittenhouse Ivory over New England Red by Roger S. Wright Furniture. What do you think about the two different colors on the upper and lower cabinets?

Finally, did you know you can mix our paints to create your own custom color? This is 1702 Colonial White, 1726 Black and a touch of 1708 Soldier Blue to make the perfect Gray for an entrance hall.

Wishing you happy holidays and a happy new year.

Tour This 180 Year Old New England Home

28 Nov

Join me today in touring a home that was built 180 years ago!  A log cabin was first built on the 200 acres bought by John & Catherine Sutton from William Penn in 1790.  Later, the family built a stone house in 1836, the current owners added a new brick addition.

If you enjoy primitive and early American decorating, I think you’re going to love this tour!

In the rooms to come you’ll notice Old Village Paint colors including: Townhouse Ivory, Cabinetmaker Blue, Salem Brick, Antique Yellow, Pearwood, New England Red, Colonial Green, and Village Tavern Blue.

I love how these red doors pick up the colors of the quilt!

Painted Hutch Primitives

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:
