Country Chic Paint in Tennessee

When I opened my store over a year ago, I knew I wanted to carry paint in my store. After all, that's what I do, paint. I have tried several brands and really liked Country Chic Paints for durability and color. It is a chalk based paint so it is easy to work with. One of the most important things they offered was NO VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds, In easy terms the smelly harmful vapor)

So now, after a year of carrying Country Chic Paint in Tennessee, what do I think?

I think when people use this product they are pleasantly surprised with how smooth and beautiful this finish is. The classes we offer teach application and techniques of the various products available in this line of paint. Our class schedule is posted under classes in our header.

We have our signature colors like Dreamingincolor (turquoise)
Dreamingincolor Dudley's Bandana (red) and Dreamingincolor Misha (Blue) to name a few

Seeing is believing.

The befores and afters of all the painted furniture that has sold over time says it all.

Two tones and layers of paint with dry brushing and light and dark waxes

One of my favorite colors is Elegance. It is a pretty grey blue.

Time and time again the custom pieces I paint has the customer coming back for more. They get inspired by color. Those afraid of using color begin to see how it can transform those pieces stuck in a back bedroom or in storage. After they are renewed with paint, they become the pieces that are treasured again.

With all the chalky paint on the market I take that as a compliment!

I have found that most paints, when compared apples to apples, take several coats for coverage, are too thick or too thin and have little desired colors available. They are usually harmful to the environment and to your health. When people think they are getting a deal,(cheaper price) they usually are using more of the other paints for coverage in the long run, thus spending much more.
This is my opinion.

Would love for you to try it!

Succulent Terrarium

Memorial Day is this weekend and people will be gathered with friends and families. Lots of BBQ and decorating happening. All to celebrate our soldiers that fought and died for our country.

 All the more to do something in honor of this celebration. Last year I created buntings with material I found at Old Time Pottery for the porch. This year, I had an idea to create something that can be used way after the weekend is over.

A Patriotic Succulent Terrarium.

I created this with some Old Time Pottery supplies. You can too! It is something you can all year long.

Head over to Old Time Pottery for complete instructions.

Happy Memorial Day!

Staging a Master Bedroom

I have been missing for a while. Life has been crazy. My husband has been in the hospital again. This time it was a hernia surgery turned into an emergency surgery. He is home healing. 
Needless-to-say that has kept me from doing much needed things!

One thing I did manage to do with all the craziness is take a home staging course!
I felt like it would enhance the design and redesign services offered at Dreamingincolor.

At the end of the course we staged a home going on the market for sale. This was one of the bedrooms I staged.
