Webster's Chalk Paint Powder is here!

It's here!  We are now carrying Webster's Chalk Paint Powder at "The Not So Empty Nest"!  Visit our booth at Greystone Antiques & Marketplace on Highway 280.  Just click on Ayla's face on the lemonade stand on the sidebar for directions.

All you need is 1 bag of Chalk Paint Powder and water to add to ANY COLOR latex paint.

1 bag of Chalk Paint Powder makes a quart of paint OR 1 cup of 4 different colors!  
The sample sizes you get at any paint/hardware store are perfect!  
Many DIY mixes are toxic.  Ours is all natural and not harmful!
The wax has a very pleasing vanilla smell and is the best we've used.

Chalk Paint Powder - $16.95
Wax comes in Light & Brown Rugger - $21.95

We'll be holding classes soon around Birmingham.  For $25 we'll include a sample size of powder, cabinet door to upcycle, paint brush, container & lots of great ideas!  Let us know if you'd like to sign up.  We're looking for some good spots around town, so gather your friends and we'll come to you!

If you're not from the Birmingham area and would like to order, just email us at The Not So Empty Nest and let us know what you'd like.

Coming Soon! Chalk Paint Powder!

We are so excited about a new product we will be stocking!  It's Chalk Paint Powder.  Our first shipment should be coming tomorrow so we'll get to painting and stocking it later this week!

You can mix this powder with ANY latex paint - flat, satin and even eggshell finishes.  You can paint furniture, chalkboards and much more - all without priming and sanding!  The colors are unlimited and it is very cost effective.  We are the first dealers in Alabama and are very excited as this is another avenue God is blessing us with to help bring home another little girl from China.

We just wanted you to be the first to know and we'll have more details coming soon!

New in "The Nest"!

We just put some awesome vintage pieces in "The Nest", and we are just itching to get our hands on them.

Lucky for you, the garage is full and our hubbies won't let us take it over this time.  So what we're doing is putting our pieces in our booth, and passing them on to you for your own TLC.  That way you can decide if you want to leave them in their natural beauty or choose what color to paint! These latest 2 finds could be absolutely gorgeous either way.  The detail is fabulous!  We love the hardware!

Here's a gorgeous chest of drawers from the 1920s. It has dove-tailed drawers; original, gorgeous knobs and even the backside is a work of craftsmanship.  All the drawers work great!  This is priced at $289.

Here's a matching vanity that has a mirror and stool.  We are selling all of these separate since it would also make an awesome desk.  The vanity is priced at $259.

This stool is priced at $39.  You can choose to keep the vintage fabric or recover.
This mirror could be used on the vanity, as a hanging mirror or would make a gorgeous chalkboard.  It's priced at $59.
Look at the detail in these pieces.

We did get a little painting done in this freezing weather and added this old ladder priced at $69.  If you look to the left of it, you'll see a door turned message board with a chalkboard and hooks!
It's priced at $89.

Here's matching end tables priced at $89 for the pair and a really cute accent table 
that is just dying to be painted!

We took a metal frame that hadn't sold (for $5) and brought it home and made a chalkboard out of it.  Now it's $19.  It's really a putty color with a patina rub and turned out awesome.  So we gathered up a few more frames that haven't sold and will put our touch on them soon.

This chalkboard above sums it up pretty good!  You'll have a few weeks or so to buy low before we get our hands on it and make it even more special!  Of course, with a 2.5 year old trying to "help" bring her sister home, the painting takes a little longer . . .

When you visit Greystone Antiques and Marketplace just ask for "The Not So Empty Nest".  We're in the very back left corner of the store.
