I'm also running a 15% off paint sale for our local customers who can do porch pick up in Byron Center Michigan during the Pandemic!
3.28.2020 All the stores in Michigan are on lock down due to the Coronavirus but I am well stocked with paint supplies here in West Michigan and personally hand pack and ship orders out as fast as they come in. We want to make sure you're not only physically healthy but that you have fun things to do to occupy your mind while you're at home. I am offering 15% off all paint supplies to our local customers who are able to do porch pick up in Byron Center during the time our stores are locked down (simply shop my website at www.shizzle-design.com then choose free local pick up at checkout; I'll discount the paint supplies from my end when I box up your purchases. You'll also be able to arrange a time for pick up at check out). I am not allowed to discount any DIY or APC paint supplies that ship but I do offer quick, fantastic customer service whether you're a local customer or across the nation or ocean. I ship worldwide as well as APO if you're wanting to ship paint supplies to one of your friends or family members in the military.

Salvation Solution - Stain Blocker
Ever try to paint a piece of mahogany furniture or started painting a piece only to experience horrible bleed through from wood tannins halfway into your project? Salvation Solution is a true redemption for rebel furniture. Applying this prior to painting creates an incredible barrier to block those nasty stains and tannins.
Salvation Solution comes in both clear or white. Clear is best if you're planning to wet distress your painted piece so the original wood peeks through. There's a lot to look at on the labels, to keep the two straight, Salvation Solution is red on the label of the Clear version. It also says Clear on the very bottom under the chair.
If you're painting a piece pastel or white, I recommend going with the White Salvation Solution. This will not only block potential bleed through, but it will act as a first coat in coverage. Here's what the White can looks like. Note the words Salvation Solution are in Blue and it says WHITE under the chair.

I've blended paint colors on furniture since I started in this business years ago.
I can't explain why I did it other than that it just made sense. I've always loved the look of old world look of paint finishes in Tuscany and have decided for the first time to share my personal style for blending with the public.
Registration is already open and last I knew, there were still four more open spots.
This specialty Bring Your Own Piece of Furniture Paint Blending Workshop is Scheduled for February 23, 2019 from 4:30 - 8:30 p.m.. For more info, click below.
