Pssstttt.... Have you heard the news? We are now an Independent Designer for Chalk Couture!!! It's so exciting be joining up with this brand new company, I can't wait to share all the fun with you! Chalk Couture just launched in July, so it really is brand new! Have you heard about it, yet? No? Well we can fix that up, real quick!
Do you love chalkboards? Like changing them out for different looks or messages, but sometimes don’t like the results of how it looks after you have freehanded it? Or you have it perfect and someone walks by and swipes it with their hand. Frustrating!!! It happens to most of us, but great news!!!! That’s what is so fabulous about CHALK COUTURE, they have solved our problem. If you are like me and can’t draw or don’t always like your handwriting, they have stencils for us. Chalk Couture stencils are a silkscreen vinyl stencil and best of all reusable! The chalk paste is rich thick and creamy and you just wipe it on and it stays put until you take it off. Wash your stencil off and you have a complete masterpiece and the envy of all your friends. It works on more than just chalkboards, too.
Chalk Couture is a Direct Sales Company, but it fits in with us here at Shell’s Vintage Charm, so well, that I had to jump on board. Plus, I couldn’t not tell you all about it. I promise not to be always asking you to sign up and join, but if you feel it’s a great fit for you and looking for a way to make extra money, we would love for you to join our team. We will be using it in some of our workshops and classes and yes, even on the signs and products that we sale.
Our kit is on its way and we will be sharing all the fun things with you soon! In the meantime take a look at all the fun stencils available on our Chalk Couture website, here -->>> https://vintagecharm.chalkcouture.com/store#.
Be back soon with some more Chalk Couture inspiration!
Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. It’s time to plant those flowers and spruce up our porches. So off we go, to purchase our flowers. Maybe we will pick up some new terracotta clay pots. We need something to plant the flowers in and they are cheap enough. Visions of our spruced up porch start to fill our mind… Cue the happy thoughts of spring… birds chirping, warmer weather, longer days, flowers, sitting on the porch sipping on sweet tea. But wait… something isn’t quite right, could it be that bright orangey looking thing? Yeah, that thing! You know that new terracotta clay pot, you just purchased. It has no charm! It looks out of place sitting there with all your other weathered containers, you know, the ones that has patina in all the right places. Now what are you going to do? No worries… I have the perfect solution! Let’s give it a faux weathered look and add texture using Country Chic Paint.
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.
,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.

Makeover of a Secretary Chest of Drawers
"Do you want to buy this chest of drawers?" my friend asked. My reply was, "Awesome, that is great! Let me think about it." For some reason, I was a bit (okay, so maybe a lot) wishy washy and hesitant about buying this piece? It was in excellent shape, the perfect item for a makeover. I do love to paint and do furniture makeovers. Why was I being so hesitant?
