Everything painted in this storefront window was painted with a chalk paint line called Vintage, which this shop sells. Don't you love that old world look?
Storefront Window - Birds And Words Shop In McKinney TX
All their paints, waxes, and creams were displayed on that old green cubby cabinet I whined over recently.
Of all the colors, this gray-blue dresser was definitely calling to me!
I bought this book a while back at another of my favorite stores in McKinney called My Favorite Room...
Since buying the book, I've been looking for the paint. I found it right down the street!
The best thing about the book (besides all the wonderful projects featured) is that on the right hand corner of the page the book shows each of the paint colors and waxes used to complete each project.
I'm planning on painting some light fixtures similar to this sconce, so I bought the paint required for this light fixture.
They used one paint color and two waxes: Warm Cream to paint the fixture, then the brown wax and white wax to age and finish it.
I was happy to find the Vintage paint at the shop pictured here, which is called Birds And Words in McKinney, TX.
Here's a few "inside the shop" photos of some of their painted furniture from their Facebook page...
I bought several small samples of the paint to try along with their dark brown aging wax. I already have a white wax from another brand that I want to use up so that will do for now.
Now all I need is a victim to practice on! I'll go out to my stash in the garage and find a small piece of furniture to use to try out the paint.
Thanks for dropping by!
