Something Borrowed Something Vintage visits Solana Beach

This weekend I visited Solana Beach with my family for a little break. While there I stopped in at the local Chalk Paint® Stockist, Tadah. Her shop is amazing and beautiful, filled to the top with gorgeous home decor and gifts.

When I worked at the show Junk Bonanza a few weekends ago, Tadah was also one of the local chalk paint® stockists to work the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® booth with us.




A Junk Bonanza vendor asked us to give her “money bags” a little extra chalk paint® bling.  So we stenciled them with Florence #Junk.

Chalk Paint® is here at Something Borrowed Something Vintage in Yorba Linda

Here at Something Borrowed Something Vintage in the city of Yorba Linda we sell the Chalk Paint® color Henrietta.  Its supposedly the color requested by Sandringham for decoration of the  nursery for Royal baby #2.

Of course this is a rumor. But Annie Sloan herself has said we can “neither confirm nor deny” that this true. What color is Henrietta? “A beautiful rich complex pink with a hint of lilac. ” according to Annie Sloan’s website. drakehenriettaclose350

Chalk Paint® is absolutely safe for a babies nursery. It has no VOC and almost no odor. What is VOC you say? It’s an abbreviation for Volatile Organic Compound. According to a Consumer reports website “VOCs are solvents that get released into the air as the paint dries.” So obviously the less of these in the paint the better. Annie Sloans Chalk Paint has no VOC’s.

Looks like I’ll be busy at the shop tomorrow painting something in Henrietta. Come and visit me at Something Borrowed Something Vintage, if you’re in Yorba Linda, an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® authorized retailer and Stockist.
