Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® & more at The Vintage Bricoleur

Pin It
It's mid-August already, school is back in session and we are back to our regular routine, 
(on one of our road trips this summer)

which allows us to have more time to junk, create and paint.  
Basically more time for you!

I thought I would share some pics of what the store looks like right now, and from the last few weeks, as some of the pieces are SOLD.

This beautiful vintage iron chaise lounge SOLD.  
The pillows, statue and vintage lace are still avialable.

This awesome island makes a great counter for the kitchen or studio.  We have a great selection of vintage silverplate, ironstone dishes and linens.  This one-of-a-kind pie safe is great for outdoor BBQ's or baked goods for the coming holidays.

Don't forget we carry the full line of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®, and we offer classes. 
 Next class is
 August 20th 9am -11:30am
September 17th 11:30 -1:00pm.

We offer pretty handmade accessories and jewelry.

Come pick up a pillow made out of vintage grain sacks.  
It's a great way to change up a room.

These Leather Belt Cuffs and rings, earrings, bobbies, barrettes, leather purses and pouches are very unique and stylish.

A pretty little summer scarf is perfect to dress up any outfit.

Key rings made with vintage silverplate are a great gift item.
