Durable Paint That Stands Up To Our Four Legged Friends

3 Dec

This week our owner welcomed a new four legged love into her family.

Her home will be filled with extra puppy joy for the next few months, and she’ll be shopping for some extra durable toys and accessories.

If you have fur babies at home, you know that they bring extra wear to floors, furniture and other surfaces.  If you’ve got a stained or painted spot that seems to always be wearing out, experiment by adding Old Village Paint, we know you’ll be blown away!

“I bought your cranberry stain up in New York and stained my kitchen cabinets and they were beautiful. Everyone loved them and they lasted with no wear or tear. I just love your stain and it’s so easy to use, it’s incredible.” Cheryle Clark

“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. When trying to choose a color I found the Rittenhouse Ivory was underrepresented and I was hoping to give you a picture to add to your website. 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.” Sincerely, D. King

“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

Thanks for all the kind words everyone! Enjoy the new puppy Laney! If you do the “four legged friend experiment” on our paint, we’d love to know how it went!

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

Why Old Village Paints Are Different: Pigments!

12 Nov

What sets Old Village Paints apart from our competitors? Our paint 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.”
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 tins 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! You might use several gallons to cover with their paint what you can do with a quart of ours. Cut hours of labor time and save money on your next project by trying Old Village Paint- you’ll never regret it.

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 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.
