As the major contributor this website, I look to inspire you with all the possibilities Annie’s paint has to offer.  These pieces caught my eye, especially the rich color of  Napoleonic Blue and Emperor’s silk!  Not everyone has the opportunity to use these custom colors in their homes but you have to admit they are gorgeous!

  1. This small French provincial tall dresser is so whimsical. Hand painted in a custom soft baby pink- sealed with multiple coats of a dark antiquing wax glaze for a beautiful shabby chic / old world finish. Distressed here and there. Beautiful brass hardware that has been highlighted with just a touch of gold gilding wax.
  2.  For this pretty jewel tone they used Emperor’s Silk & Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. Then they added a touch of Florence and Pure White to brighten to just the right tone.

Italian Hand Blown Glass Vessels

We have a limited quantity of vintage and antique Italian hand blown glass vessels originally used to store wine and oil. Hand made, each vessel is unique in color, size and style depending on the period of manufacture and, of course, the individual glass blower. Pictured left to right in the first image is an early “round”, 125-150  years old, a cylindrical “verde” with giraffe neck at 100 years or older, and a “smoke” cylindrical (darker to preserve wine) with an identifying mark of the family who originally owned it, and is  over 100 years old.

The second image shows vintage vessels manufactured between 1920 and 1960. These are more uniform in shape as they were hand blown into molds.

Collected over several decades by an Italian family, they were eventually brought to the US  to sell. Unfortunately, the family had to return home early and left many here in storage. Over time, their contact here in the US sold most of them. We were fortunate enough to obtain a number of the remaining ones stored here in Atlanta.

These vessels are typically between 22” to 28” tall, are very attractive and will add style and elegance to both residential and commercial settings.

Annie Sloan Lacquer makes it easy to use Chalk Paint®
to transform your floors and create beautiful, coordinating spaces.
After painting, apply Annie Sloan Lacquer to add strength, durability
and a slight sheen to your floors. It even goes on clear to keep the focus
where it matters – the paint!

Pictured above is the floor of our New Orleans studio, which was painted 
with Coco in early 2014 and sealed with Annie Sloan Lacquer.
After years of daily use, it’s still looking good!

To learn how it’s done, visit the Palette blog and see how several
