Vintage Chic Farm

Do any of you quilters out there like to re-purpose furniture?

If so, I have to tell you about my son's company.
He has developed a chalk paint, that is awesome.

My daughter-in-law keeps a sweet little blog 
on all of her projects HERE!!

And tells you 'How To' redo furniture with the chalk paint.

The quilt in the background is the one I made them for their wedding years ago.

Stephen, my son, has been painting for over 15 years and really understands
the properties of paints, what they will do and what they won't do,
what kinds work on what and what won't etc.

They have a wholesale account in Cape Cod that keeps them pretty busy who originally was going to go with
the Annie Sloan paint which is so popular,
but they love that this paint is made in the good 'ole USA!

He starts with a top of the line base paint which is why the paint does what it's supposed to do.

These kids are really working hard to make it happen,
and I always admire that in the younger generation,
seeing so many these days just want a hand out!

So if you get a chance....
go check them out!

Oh yes...
and she's a quilter! Smile!
I can't get any of 'my' girls to quilt....
(burned them out at the quilt shoppe, making them work sometimes until 2 in the morning to get us ready for a show making kits!)
No wonder eh??

Have a fabulous day my dearies!!
