Shag Carpet – American Home Collection!
Our retailers have been busy this week and they are ready to inspire you to use Shag Carpet from the American Home Collection!
Why do we love Shag Carpet? Orange is between red and yellow on the spectrum of light, and we feel cheerful and optimistic surrounded in shades of orange. Orange is vibrant and energizing and it’s a hot trending color going into our summer season. We think we’ve nailed it with our perfect shade of burnt orange! We hope you’ll try Shag Carpet & we think you’ll love it!
Kathy Cook, owner of The Vintage Dames, Harrisburg, PA, painted her table and the backs of her chairs, in Shag Carpet. Kathy said, “I had a lot of fun with this and love it…! The seats had been replaced before and the screws were glued in… so whats a girl to do… decoupage of course! And the fabric has a sunday on it… how fun! The inside of the chairs are painted in American Home collection too… Backyard Pond, Rose Garden (Love) Chenille Bedspread and Vintage Velvet. I finished with Hard Coat!” We love Kathy’s bright cheerful work and we hope to see more of her work soon!
Shag Carpet was a perfect choice to update this piece, for Lisa DeSantiago, owner of Double Take Decor, Hamilton, MT. Lisa painted her server in Shag Carpet and stained the top, she said, “LOVE this new color. Shag Carpet with dark wax and copper mica, The top is stained but it didn’t come out very well so we ‘fixed’ it. Take THAT messed up table top…LOL!” We love how Lisa transformed her piece and we know she can make anything beautiful with American Paint Company paint and finishes!
Talented retailer, Kimberly McLaughlin, owner of Larkspur Interiors, Pittman, NJ, painted this beautiful buffet using Shag Carpet. Kimberly used dark wax to add depth and shading to Shag Carpet on her piece, and we love her work!
We hope you are inspired by our retailers painted pieces. Make sure to stop by and say hi if you are in their area, and check out their Facebook pages to see more of their beautiful work and give them a like while your there!
