Inside The Painted Owl

Big things are happening at The Painted Owl! The front of the store has been painted and refreshed for starters, but the really big news is, beginning in June, The Green Sparrow Boutique will be moving into our space with her beautiful line of clothing and accessories! I am so excited to be sharing our space with Cory Olney, owner of The Green Sparrow. We look forward to collaborating in many ways while we both continue to offer our customers what they have come to expect from us. We are both working moms searching for balance in our business/home lives. Together we will be able to meet the demands of store hours and do the work we love to do, while creating a little more balance in our lives.

The Painted Owl will continue to paint and relove old pieces of furniture, as well as inspire and teach our customers how to do the same. We look forward to expanding our line of classes on repurposing and creating beauty with salvaged materials. We will also be developing art classes for children in addition to hosting paint parties and our twice monthly Paint Club gatherings.

But wait, there is more! Beginning in June as well, I will become a retailer for Heirloom Traditions Chalk-Type Paint. This paint is also very low VOC; it goes on beautifully, dries quickly and distresses very easily. It is 100% made in the USA….Louisville, Kentucky to be precise. There are 50 colors to choose from, 13 colored waxes, liquid patinas and more……And it costs less! A quart of paint is $30 and it comes in 8oz and pint sized options as well. But the very best thing about this paint is its accessibility. With Heirloom Traditions, if I don’t have the color or finish you want, you can order directly through my website and have product sent to your home. I will offset the small shipping cost by offering you a free paint brush with the receipt of your online purchase. NO MORE WAITING for me to be able to reorder, no more delaying that project you really want to do NOW. Just shop online and wait for USPS to bring it straight to your door.

I hope you will come by sometime this summer and check out all these exciting changes. We will be hosting a grand re-opening party at some point, so be sure to add your email address at the bottom of this page to be notified of the details. Thanks for all the support you have given to us over the last 2 and a half years. We look forward to many more years of working with you.
