An Annual Affair

Every year in Parrsboro we are treated to a fantastic tradition, Old Fashion Saturday night! Usually it is planned for July, this year it was postponed because of a hurricane but it was worth the wait! The sounds of music, laughter and the rumble of antique cars as they parked filled Main Street as the night began! It was so exciting and encouraging to see so many people out on the street, out with their family and friends, to just enjoy this annual event. Many people who came into the shop reminded us that this was how every Saturday used to be, that there should be a circle wore into the sidewalks where people would walk laps to see friends and to just enjoy another exciting Saturday night. Seeing them light up as they would tell us this, was a high point in the evening. If you have never visited Parrsboro, you know what I am going to say.. you need to! If you have never enjoyed Old Fashion Saturday night, you need to! Mark your calendars and come to Parrsboro! 

A couple shots from Saturday night! We changed up our store windows to reflect a vintage theme for the occasion!

Every treasure has a story!

We love hearing the stories behind all your finds as much as we love seeing how you transform them! Caitlin combined Old White and Duck Egg to create a soft, dreamy look! She was thrilled to be able to give this well-travelled trunk a new look!

Here is what she had to say about the story behind her world traveling treasure!

“Not a super fun story, but it was a man in Truro’s that took it around the world with him. It’s giant! It was hidden in a basement, and now it’s the main piece in my front room!” 

Looks beautiful, Caitlin!




Another happy customer!

We are so pleased to have another great review on Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan! Check out Lesli’s comments and beautiful transformations! The antique chair was painted in Versailles and Paris Grey. The patio chair, as well as the hammock, was painted in English Yellow! What a difference!

“You can quote me as an extremely pleased customer — great coverage, fume free, and the best paint clean up I have ever experienced. A little can go a long way.”

“I can’t be more pleased with the results of the Annie Sloan Chalk paint that I purchased from your store! When I read online about this paint I was so disappointed that there it could not be purchased in Newfoundland. However, I was determined and am so glad that you were able to ship it to me from Nova Scotia :)
Attached are few images of some of my completed projects. I only purchased two quarts and was amazed at the number of pieces I was able to finish! Out of the Greek Blue I painted two bureaus, a chest of drawers and a cedar lined trunk. Using the white I painted three night stands, a coffee table, an end table, a rocking chair and two dresser tops. And I still have loads of dark wax and 1/4 tin of clear wax left.
And I want to do MORE! I have several mismatched pieces of furniture in my living room and am trying to figure out what would be the best colour to go with red furniture. I was thinking of going with the olive… or maybe the burgundy. If you have any suggestions please let me know!
Thanks again for being so helpful and shipping the paint for me! I really appreciate it :) and I will definitely be in touch soon to order more :)
Thanks and take care,

Thanks Bridget! We look forward to helping you with all your Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan projects!
