Workshops Held Weekly

New Workshops are being developed…something for the new novice and the seasoned painters… look for workshops that include modernizing old furniture and aging new furniture… as a stockist for Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan, I am certified with her product line and paint techniques.  When looking for a workshop in your area, look for an official stockist.

Looking to give your kitchen a facelift without taking out a second mortgage… consider painting them with Chalk Paint®.

Vintage floor coverings

Often times people wander into The Pink House and say how much the shop reminds them of grandmas house. The vintage surroundings are comfortable and friendly and feel quite homey. The house wonders in a circle and you are free to roam in all the rooms. This week the living room features a Victorian sofa flanked on either side by tables that were created by converting a vanity. They are painted with chalk paint (R) by Annie Sloan in a custom mix of pink – using Old White and Emperors Silk.

Bring Your Own Piece Workshop

Deb brought this piece to The Pink House for a recent workshop. It has a marble top and all hardware was intact. One handle had been removed when this photo was taken.

Deb used Country Grey under the Duck Egg on the drawer fronts and distressed back to reveal the soft color of Country Grey. The color she picked look great with the marble top. Deb considered painting the marble top with Chalk Paint® but the color complimented the marble very well.

Currently “Bring Your Own Piece” Workshops are currently held weekly on Thursday’s. Choose between 10-1 or 5-8. Register by email or contact us by phone…

Grain Sack Chair – Chalk Paint® and Upholstery

Lately when I want to take a picture with my iphone I have to delete pictures to take pictures because I have tooooo much media in the memory of my phone. So, I finally downloaded all of the pictures to the computer….when going down memory lane on the computer I realized there are really lots of projects chronicled that you might like to see….

This project is one that I did for a customer/friend from The Pink House.

As a stockist for Chalk Paint® we have the pleasure of meeting lots of new customers who become friends. Diane took one of my very first “Bing your own Piece” workshops. I think I can speak for Diane and say her favorite colors are Old White and Paris Grey….., she loves Louis Blue too….. She came across some really Frenchy looking chairs – painted them with Chalk Paint® and brought them to me….

Diane had several grain sacks and she asked me to upholster them onto her project…..

I like how they turned out….. and so did Diane….

Faucet handles and a doorknob

Here at The Pink House we look for ways to repurpose and recreate found objects. These faucet handles were rescued from a local scrap yard and the knob was switched out when updating knobs on a door. The piece of wood was the “in between” section of wood on a vanity that we (hubby) took apart to create bedside tables.
This would be a very useful towel bar in a bathroom. The piece is painted with Chalk Paint (R) Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan. The color is Paris Grey.
As always…it’s for sale, $32.00.
