In November, we talked about staying ahead of color trends in furniture and decor by looking at what is happening with color in fashion. Soon after color trends in fashion, it tends to gain popularity in home decor as well. Pantone announced their fashion color trends for this spring, so we suggest taking inspiration from this fashion season if you are running out of colors ideas! For more information on this spring's colors visit Pantone's website!
Make your own chalk paint
Chalk paint is all the rage these days! It is fun, covers well, and helps everyone make those adorable homemade chalkboards. And now you can make this awesome paint from home with paints you already have and it is super easy. There are different recipes all over the web, but we tested this one out and we loved it! All you need is 1 tablespoon of unsanded grout, 1/2 cup acrylic or latex paint, a mixing cup, and spoon. We recommend using a mason jar because the measurement for the paint is on the jar and it seals it nicely! Adjust grout as needed for thickness and don't be afraid to mix your own colors! Just measure, mix, and paint!
And remember chalk paint is great for covering furniture as well! It's not just for chalkboards!
We are happy to have participated again this year in the Greater Indianapolis Garage Sale. Volunteer dealers shared their expansive knowledge on antique and vintage jewelry, art, and more with the people of Indianapolis. We had a great time offering free item evaluations to those who stopped by with their treasured heirlooms. It's always a great time had by all and a big thanks to those who made it possible, our dealers especially!
