This stuff is awesome! Hit me up to score some Wise Owl Paint salve. Use it on painted, sealed, or raw wood, leather (works great on old boots and shoes), dashboards, headlights, old/smelly drawers, removes oxidation from hardware, squeaky doors, hair frizzies, cuticles, tires, plastic toys, and so many other uses. This is non-toxic and all natural. I use it instead of Pledge-type products. It's got so many different uses; it's pretty wild. Visit my page or message me at Charmingly Incorrect Design

Your "Blue" is to die for. Blue and White is my heart-flutter color combo that I always gravitate towards. So pretty.

Incredible Encanto-Inspired Upcycling

Thinking of Spring reminds me: Don't be afraid of COLOR! What's with only neutrals in home decor? Snooze! Let you color freak flag fly! It'll make you feel good. Start with a small piece or a canvas, and learn your inner color style. Trust me! If you need help, info or encouragement, I'm here for you. #wiseowlpaint


Green EZ Strip & Clean Furniture Stripper & Finishing Cleaner (Degreaser)

Where are my furniture people? Have you heard the awful advice about using oven cleaner to strip wood? DO NOT DO THAT! It's so unsafe and unhealthy. If you want a green stripper, seriously, biodegradable, no smell, but works incredible, Wise Owl has it. Use the finishing rinse to clean dirt and old finishes from wood. Sound too good to be true? Not this time! Here's our Wise Owl Creative Director doing a live demonstration on our solvent-free stripper. Watch, then contact me to try it.

I can get you everything you need: Salt Wash, Wise Owl paint, Cling On! Brushes, and even hook you up with a perfect stencil design from Cutting Edge Stencils! Check out Calle's video, and be sure to give her a thumbs up:

I love seeing my customers' finished projects! Pat did an incredible job painting and decoupaging this cabinet. Her message: "Hi there! I have started painting and decoupaging my kitchen cabinets with the Smoky Quartz I got from you. I love Wise Owl paints. I did 2 coats of grey primer on cabinets. Used white primer under papers. Two coats of smoky quartz on door backs and cabinets.
2 coats of Wise Owl Varnish under papers. Ironed on papers and put 2 coats of 1 hr enamel clear to seal papers. Thank you so much! I love Wise Owl! All great products. I’m starting the other side of kitchen cabinets tomorrow.
Just wanted to show you the finished project ... Thank you again."❤️🌻😎


Kids are Back to School, so now is the time for the quickest, most-effective, "curb-appealingest" (new word, you're welcome), inexpensive home beautification project! Update that dated front door with a gorgeous new paint color! I have it, and you need it: Wise Owl paint One Hour Enamel is made especially for doors and cabinets. The finish is harder than trigonometry, and the results are stunning! Real Estate experts say "blue doors sell houses." But any of the Wise Owl Paint One Hour Enamel colors will bring a "wow" from your neighbors. Watch them copy you after you've painted your door. Only thing is, your paint will be prettier, smoother, and more durable than any paint they will use. 😍

Our Salve is all natural, so we put it on everything—including ourselves! Can also be used on wood, metal, leather, plexiglass, and more! Available now at!


Look what got a Share on the Wise Owl page! It's so pretty. Now, we're going to be adding a butcher block top to match the stools. It's going to be AH-Mazing! Next weekend it gets the upgrade. I'll post a pic when it's done.

Who remembers this sad buffet? Well, it's all patched up and painted in Wise Owl's One Hour Enamel Seeded Eucalyptus. Gorgeous gold hardware and matching stools make a great island or breakfast bar. Back side has a beautiful compass rose in gold metallic. My son and his gf took it home before I was able to put a natural top on to match the stools. Guess they wanted to make sure nobody else grabbed it!

Hi! Happy Sunday! So, honestly, I haven't painted large pieces in a while, but earlier in the year I took a plunge and got myself a Stingray paint sprayer from Wise Owl. I finally got a chance to use it. Now, I've been pretty faithful to my handy HomeRight sprayer, but OH, MY GAWD! This sprayer is incredible! No air compressor needed, it is quieter than my HomeRight (in my opinion & hubby was happier), and much easier to clean. But, comparing it to my old sprayer isn't fair because the Stingray is a whole 'nother class than previous sprayers I've used. Wow, I want to paint everything now... Look out, world!
If you're looking to improve your painting business, give me a holler -- I'll hook you up with one of these beauties. Best tool I have in my arsenal, hands down.

Especially after painting or crafting all day. Am I right?


Wishful thinking...


I wasn't sure about this, but I couldn't stop watching. The end result was pretty cool. I'm not really a "barn door" kind of gal (and my husband does NOT like "farmhouse distressed" one stinkin' bit), but I know many of you like the look (ahem, Erin). For folks who would like a "barn door" look without hiring a contractor or buying reclaimed wood, this might work. It could really spruce up many of those hollow, flat panel doors in older homes, or used on a storeroom, bathroom, or metal door in a boutique or shop. Heck, even in a rental. After all, it's removable. What say you?

Thank you to The Silver Farmhouse for posting!


Get painting or crafting! Make those messes to make something beautiful.


Where are my Cricut or Silhouette Crafters? What do you think about this idea? Re-love and re-use a baby changing dresser that is no longer needed. I think it's kinda brilliant!


Can you see it? A rotating "She-Shed! The great George Bernard Shaw had a writing shack to get away from people so he could work. He put it on a turntable to follow the light -- Brilliant! I'd love something similar so I could follow the light, too, while painting.
