The Holidays are a perfect time to practice Charity and this year, Metheny Weir is hosting a special event honoring the fortitude shown by the three women held captive for over a decade in a Cleveland home.

A few months ago a couple stopped by our studio in search of the perfect wall finishes for their home built in 1862. After introducing them to Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan, they decided to paint their old plastered walls and provide the backdrop they needed for their antiques and folk art.
We collaborated with colors and decided on a few custom mixes. The dining room is French Linen, Old White mix. The bathroom is Old Violet, Old White mix. Both rooms were waxed using clear and dark wax. The hallway is Napolianic Blue basecoat with a troweled on Emperor’s Silk then waxed with dark.
Annie Sloan’s most recent book, “Colour Recipes for Painted Furniture and More“, shows how she transformed her cottage in France using Chalk Paint® on walls, floors and furniture. Do you have a place somewhere in your home that could use Chalk Paint®?
Check out our latest kitchen cabinet makeover using Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. The homeowner was looking for a brighter kitchen so they added a little crown molding to their existing cabinets and we painted the perimeter cabinets in Old White. The island was already black which was perfect with the style of the old white cabinets. Metheny Weir completed this project in just one week. Can you imagine your kitchen with a lighter, brighter look? Let us help!
As we prepared for our Grand Opening Party at Metheny Weir and The House Warmings we wanted to cover up the front of our spray booth in our work room. We saw a great blog While They Snooze and decided to stencil the bottom of canvas drop cloths (4x15ft) using a Royal Design Studio stencil that we have used frequently and Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in French Linen. This is how it turned out!
Another example of what a stencil can add is the cashier counter at Revolve Fashion resale clothing store we just completed.
