New Opportunities for 2017!

As 2017 is upon us with new adventures to be seen by all, M&M Embellishments is taking this moment to embark on new ventures as well. I am pleased to announce that I will be getting my own space in a new boutique in the downtown area of Franklin, PA. This new store, owned by Ashley Crawford and known as Love, Me Antiques and Consignment Boutique will be located at 309 - 13th Street and will be opening in early Spring.

Most of you who are following along this journey with me know that I transform used/ unloved/ damaged/ antique furniture into revived pieces with the use of stains, paints, dyes, and other decorative finishes. With this new opportunity, I will have a dedicated area to showcase my stained furniture art, along with smaller art pieces, most of which are also created using my specialty staining technique.I am excited for this new opportunity to have a dedicated area for people to see my creations. I will also be "embellishing" my space with my signature Perpetual Tile Calendars.

Another area that will be shown in my new space are "unfinished" furniture pieces that you will be able to purchase as is, OR you and I can collaborate on a one-of-a-kind design specific to your taste.

And now for my other big news.... if you follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Etsy, or my website, you may have already seen this announcement.

I am now an official retailer for Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paints (and finishes). I have tried many different paints (and let me tell ya, there are A LOT) on my various painted pieces and there are two or three brands that have impressed me. Wise Owl Paint stands above the others and was the paint brand that I decided was the best for me! I love the variety of colors and finishes available through this line that continues to grow!

Let me give you a quick look at some of the reason why I chose this brand above others:

What makes Wise Owl Paint so amazing?

*Zero VOC Premium clay/mineral paint with supreme adhesion without all of the prep work of traditional paints. No need to sand or prime for most projects. Wise Owl Paint will adhere to almost anything!

*Self leveling and easy to apply paint made in the USA. We are proudly manufactured in Michigan!

*Amazing Coverage! A single pint can cover up to 75 square feet!

*Inspired Color Palette– Our paints include both vintage inspired pigments and trend setting hues to cater to all styles.

*We have the best paint brushes on the planet, Cling On brushes are simply the best out there!

*Wise Owl is a versatile product line capable of a multitude of finishes. whether you desire shabby chic and rustic to modern and contemporary, our paint will provide a beautiful and lasting finish.

*We offer all natural and solvent free finishing waxes and hemp seed oil finishes. We are dedicated to the environment and our entire line is built upon our green focus.

*We are proud to be the favorite paint of many professional furniture painters!

Here's a look at the colors offered - right now there are 36 official colors, with 3 more being released within the next couple of weeks!

You do not have to be local to me to buy from me!! I do ship and if I would happen to not have an item in stock, I can have it drop shipped to you and is usually shipped from Karen ( the owner) that same day!!

Not only do we carry these beautiful paints, but we have an array of finishes including glazes, waxes, oils, metallics, and more. Karen just announced two new product releases today!!

I want to add, from my own personal experience with this paint.... Wise Owl offers extremely easy to use paints, a fabulous finish, and superior quality over many of the other paints I have tried!

We offer 11 different Natural Wax Colors in two different size tins!

We also offer 11 Wax STICKS, which are a softer wax allowing for an "easier" application with a screw up applicator!

Included in the selection of wax sticks are the metallics AND two different Essential Oils Wax Sticks {Lemongrass Black Hemp Oil and Sweet Orange Clear Natural}.

We also offer 11 different colors of Glazes!!

I will also have Cling On! Brushes in stock! These are all the rave in the furniture refinishing business and I am so excited to be a retailer for these fabulous brushes! They may not look like a brush you are accustomed to seeing, but let me tell you... these are magnificent!! The quality of a paint brush shows in the quality of the work!! There are many different sizes AND SHAPES of the Cling On!s

You can purchase any of these items {paints, finishes, brushes} on my Etsy shop. And of course, these will be available locally in April, once the boutique is open. If you are local and would like to purchase anything before the boutique is open, just shoot me an email and we can get together!

So, to say I am excited about these new opportunities as M&M continues to grow is an understatement! I hope to see some familiar faces at the new boutique in the spring! And I look forward to meeting new people!

I will update the website and Facebook page with more information about the grand opening as it becomes available.

I've been working on a lot of commissioned pieces lately, but I will share a few pieces I have on hand that are available for purchase.
