Peinture is excited to be a part SOCO – a thriving, unique location to showcase Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and the other Annie Sloan products such as her fabric line(for a list of Stockists, please visit: http://www.anniesloan.com). We have created an enticing shopping environment for one-of-a-kind vintage pieces and accessories, along with hand painted furniture. We are in love nostalgia and the gentle wear on older pieces. The dings, scuffs, and imperfections tell a story. What others may see as flaws, we see as character!
In addition to selling vintage home décor and Chalk Paint®, Peinture also has an amazing space where we hold workshops. In hands-on sessions, you can learn to paint furniture in our Furniture Painting 101 classes(no experience required!). We also offer advanced classes for others who want to experiment with finishes and techniques and kick it up a notch! Custom and private classes are also available. Birthdays, Bridal Showers, Corporate Team Building, etc. Just ask! Check out our “Workshops” page for available dates(they sell out fast!).
Deborah finds antique or vintage items made with quality materials and transforms them with Chalk Paint®. “You will come across beautiful pieces of furniture where it makes more sense to paint them rather than do a major restoration. I feel the amazing details older pieces possess actually look better and stand out more when they are painted. Chalk Paint® allows you to do that easily.”
Deborah also sees ‘Peinture’ as a chance to expose the paint to professional designers. “Chalk Paint® changed my interior design business. I was constantly faced with the issue of finding the right piece, but in the wrong color or finish. I dreaded the laborious task of re-painting furniture because of the stripping, sanding, and priming involved. With Annie Sloan’s paint, I was finally able to achieve what I wanted, without the labor.” She adds, “It also helps solve the common dilemma for people who want to incorporate family heirlooms that don’t quite fit their design vision. “People can easily paint these pieces themselves with Chalk Paint® and re-introduce them in their home!”
