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.

 

Painting for yourself or your customer?

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® English Yellow

At a recent workshop someone asked the question “what is the color that sells?” Well thats the million dollar question we all want to know.

But do you really want to paint to your customer or do you want to extend your artistic range and paint what inspires you? Lately I’ve been doing a little soul searching as to “who I’m painting for”.

I’ve been wanting to try English Yellow for so long now I’m practically drooling but I’m thinking is anyone going to buy a piece of furniture in English Yellow? Yes!  I would. You know why? Because its different. And there is a painted piece for every body out there.

So I’m off to paint a pretty little coffee table in English Yellow by Annie Sloan. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Oh, and how quickly it sells.

Come and see us at our store in Yorba Linda, Something Borrowed Something Vintage

It was such a great process and everyone at Unfolded, who is the distributor for Annie Sloan here in the US,  was so helpful.

I CAN NOT WAIT to go to the training in New Orleans. Which is where Unfolded has its headquarters. I will for sure be taking tons of pics and updating you all about the wonderful people I meet and everything that takes place.

Our new location here in Yorba Linda, California is coming along. We got our hot little hands on the keys to the new shop and in no less than 2 hours we started demo on some interior walls that will be our future boutique floor space!

There is Mr. SBSV looking not too happy with a hammer in hand! I promise he’s pretty cute and wont try and demo you when you come in to the shop! 🙂

And these two little cuties are just checking on Mr. SBSV’s work to make sure its done right! Thats my baby girl and my brothers son who when I told him we were gonna’ have a “hammer party” said “alwight!” with a little fist pumping action.  These two little “helpers” get up to some wild shenanigans and I promise you WILL see them at the new shop when we open in March.

I am working on my shop counters and of course they are recycled and from an old shop that is closing down in the next town over. I just love a deal and making something my own with some wood and paint. And the best part is they’re on wheels!!!

They’re super sturdy and big which is awesome since they will be seeing alot of action (i hope) and I like room to spread out. I’m planning on putting a false front on with some trim and beadboard. The other side is open shelving too which will be facing in for storage, tissue paper, bags, etc. And the best part is there’s two of them so one will be behind me against the wall for extra storage and the other will be in front for a real live counter! Anyway thats the plan for now and I’m sure it will change as I come up with other ideas. I will keep you posted on their progression.

 

And I’ll leave you with a little sneak peak of the front of the shop with my banner I photoshopped in. Ha! Doesn’t it look fun? Im so excited for our Grand Opening party in March! I wish you all could be there! 10885035_810317135723647_4746534488390872812_n
