Don’t you just love when you find an unexpected cute little treasure? On a Saturday while out buying supplies we decided to stop at a little flea market nearby. Sometimes those spur of the moment stops turn out to be some of my favorite treasured finds. We spotted this cute little replica of a Milking Stool. Knowing that I had a sample package of Country Chic Paint on the way, I thought it would be the perfect little project.
FINALLY, a Decision has been made!
Oh the struggles were real! We were so heartbroken, over no longer being able to carry our beloved Prairie Colors, after they went out of business. But we picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off and…. well you get the picture, right? We began the journey of researching, applying for wholesale applications, and trying out samples in our commitment to offer you the best for your painting needs. While we found lots of paint companies out there and they are all pretty wonderful. The choices were tough and the decisions making process wasn’t fun, to say the least. After much thought and what I felt was the closest to what we had been using and selling to our customers was… Country Chic Paint.
We are so excited! We have a fresh new logo to start off 2017, as we begin a new year of re-branding adventures. We love the new logo and hope that it says,,, who we are, where we have been, and where we are going. Things change and evolve over time, but our love for vintage, farmhouse and country life remain the same.
I am Shelley, the person that created and brought Shell's Vintage Charm to life. A creative dream come true. I consider myself so lucky to be following my passion of being a creative entrepreneur. I wear many hats in this wonderful thing called life, I am business owner, wife, mother, and a Grammy. However, I will be the first to admit that I could not do it without the help of my wonderful supportive husband, Frankie. He stands behind my crazy ideas, builds designs, and works along beside me to make my dreams come true.
The old truck in the logo somewhat resembles Frankie's old blue truck. We love his old truck (although, it still need lots of work). We hope it stands for us, but most importantly we want our logo to stand for small town values, country living, family values, and products for you to make your house a home with Vintage Charm.
So I will be blogging along the way with things all pertaining to the above, DIY tutorials, and decorating tips for your to also get your creative juices flowing. Oh and yes, I am sure I will continue to throw in some touches of romantic notions, with lace and all that good stuff. We hope to have a fresh new look to our website, soon. So please forgive our construction mess and process during our growing spurt.
You just never know what you might get with me, as I have my own touch of Vintage Charm. I want to thank you all so much for your support and hope that you will come along with us for the many new adventures and products to come.
Welcome to my studio! I have been having so much fun creating my little she shed for my studio and work space. The building was purchased in December and we began construction in January. You can read more about the early stages, here. I am sure I will be adding and changing things around. I am still looking for the perfect pieces to add to the bare spots. I still haven't finished moving in some of my supplies and don't have everything organized they way I am wanting. I will be doing some long over due purging of stuff. It's a work in progress, but it is getting there.
,Look what we got in the mail!!! Don't you just love it, when you get some HaPpY Mail? Our Retailer Sample Kit from Prairie Colors has arrived, and I can't wait to dip my paintbrush in and begin playing! I guess since I am featuring a new to me paint, I should add a disclaimer before getting started. I received Prairie Colors to try for my own personal use and was in no way compensated for this opinion and all reviews on this product are solely mine.
