I have found a couple of cool new goodies over the past few weeks and haven’t posted any of them yet since I was SOOO BEHIND on shipping after my massive clearance sale. One of the perks of this page is that, Now that so many folks know of my obsession with all things retro & atomic, cool stuff sometimes just falls into my lap!!

I am gonna post several things over on my preview group tonight or tomorrow (since the clearance sale shipping debacle and then Snowpocalypse made that group go a bit quiet right after it started 🥴🤦🏼‍♀️). I still have big plans for my preview group so I am excited to show y’all the first look at most of my haul from the past month-ish!!

There is one item I have to share with u guys here already cuz it is something for which I had been hunting for MONTHS for a customer’s retro eat-in-kitchen design before we finally gave up and went with a more traditional wood MCM piece, which will also be a classic of course 😉 BUT that means this cutie is gonna likely be up for grabs —send me a message to discuss if interested.

Check out this adorable red and white Formica dinette with two butterfly leaves (I gotta get after the leaves with some WD40 since they haven’t been moved in a long time it seems) and on original hairpin legs. Indeed, this pic is table as it was found, just wait til I get a chance to clean it up ❤️❤️. These tables are hard to find so I’m super excited to have stumbled onto one!!

It is so so cool when my day job and this one can come together for such a stinking gorgeous result. My Sales Manager was curious about painting her kitchen island so she asked how MudPaint would work for that...I told her the truth...that she will literally LOVE painting it with MudPaint because the amazing coverage and how it levels itself out!! She chose the color Charcoal (their moody dark dark grey)

Not only did she love painting with it, but is now on her 3rd can OF #Mudpaint #charcoal...because she ended up painting her island and backsplash and mantle and says she is looking for more things to paint! Says she is “OBSESSED WITH THIS PAINT” ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Look at how gorgeous it came out, and her little testimonial on the screenshot pic!! WAY TO
GO MORGAN!
*morgan isn’t on Facebook, but I got her permission to show the post! ;)**

If you want to try it for yourself, gimme a shout!! I can recommend colors or tools for you as well as consult about method on different types of pieces. I have one or two of each color at the shop but I have more backups at home too!!

Mid Century Modern Furniture Picking: Hunting for the Best - Home

So I had SEVERAL messages from the wider marketplace today, asking me MCM stood for. I had kinda taken for granted that everyone would know that. But let’s be real:: NOOOOBODY “normal” obsesses about furniture and history of furniture like I do DUH!! 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷‍♀️ So I am gonna start a little collection of general info about mid century pieces in case anyone thinks im speaking gibberish!! (Oh and if you are interested in the style or any of that, consider subscribing to
Atomic Ranch, and following me right on down the rabbit hole!! 🐇🐇 Thought some of you might find it interesting or just give a lil more context to what And why I am describing what May look to you like granny furniture or something (oh but once you know better, you have to do better...don’t be talking bad about my love!! Ummm MCM of course ;) Enjoy!

Two 24x36” colorful retro photography images. Super gorgeous and perfect condition. They just don’t really have a spot anymore. $35 each or $55 for set! Frames are just about worth that. So PayPal or Venmo payment will hold item until can pick up

Catalina is one of the prettiest blues I have ever used! Fully stocked in the shop! And swatched so y’all can see what I mean!! Y’all go check it out!!

There is a reason why blue tops the list for so many as being their favorite color - it is soothing and restful, while at the same time playful and fun! This dresser painted in our Catalina is definitely at the top of our list today! 💙

Catalina is a gorgeous blue and can be found at MudPaint retailers, or online at www.MudPaint.com.

Full restock of Country Chic and Mudpaint landed at mi casa this past week. I have returned to work at Konica Minolta as of this last week, so the inventory hasn’t made its way to the shop yet, but I have all here at house with me available for pickup, shipping or local meetup if anyone needs anything today or tomorrow. This restock includes a ton of colors we haven’t previously carried—first timers—as well as larger sizes in some we have previously only carried in sample sizes. So let me know if you are looking for anything in particular and I can likely get it to you!! Will do my best to restock shop by end of day Monday!

Ok you guys I’m trying to gauge interest on a new idea for the shop (that will make better use of the space I have available in there). I have previously offered interesting photography prints that I found inspiring and was able to get rights to in 4x6 & 5x7 (and any of those can be ordered larger as well).

I have now found a group of modern art/pop art images that I can reproduce for sale as well. 🖼 🎨🥰🤓

But I’m wondering how y’all would prefer to see them offered...do I need to print in multiple sizes for grab and go purposes? Or would y’all prefer to view them in 8x10 and then order based on the size you need? I have multiple options of full size wall art files available on each of these. But I have a couple days turnaround time on the larger ones. And, kinda making sure this is a thing y’all might be interested in before I front expense of that.

Does anyone else like this type of thing? I am betting the art images will find an audience...but am I the only one who loves the hip hop/pop quotes too?!

I have a ton more. This is just a sample. (Printed on high quality card stock hence the slightly curling until framed).

Notwithstanding the lighting in my workspace and limited self-print capabilities, these are extremely high quality images that are just gorgeous in person and full size!!

Thoughts?

So this is definitely not a finished piece yet. And cuz it’s glossy I can’t stop the glare from the lights. It’s still a work in progress and I don’t want to totally spoil it (so I blocked out a bit of it). But I did want to do a little color tease. I’m in bright blue heaven! This guy is gonna be part of a lil collection inspired by a few pop art and modern art images I came across (and, on a side note, I also got the rights to sell those images in the shop— prints can be ordered through me—some of the 8x10’s will be displayed but there will be a book of images in the booth that can be ordered in full size wall art—more on that to come). For now, check out this color!! ❤️❤️❤️

Happy New Year to y’all again!! Now that the holidays are over (not sad about that this year, i don’t know about you guys 🥴) but y’all have got to get by the shop tomorrow so you can try out my new obsession!! MUDPAINT!! This is the closest thing I have ever seen to true one coat coverage. Using a natural bristle brush or a damp synthetic and watching that paint smooth like butter is so dang satisfying!! I’m gonna get a video up ASAP of me applying it to a piece so y’all can see what I mean!! Ugh GORGEOUS!! All these colors and more available at the Perfect Patina inside Shoppes at CottonPort on antique alley or by messaging me here for shipping or pickup!!

MudPaint was created by an artist and furniture painter initially for painting furniture, but it is great for much more than just furniture! It works beautifully on tile, brick, metal, fabric, canvas, stone - and of course wood!

Oooh I forgot last night to post one other exciting announcement!! Through my partnership with Mudpaint, I am now also an official retailer of my favorite brushes (alongside Country chic brushes too). I am a ZIBRA brushes retailer!!! Aaaaggghh!! So many of y’all know that I have been recommending this brush for a couple of years now since the first time I tried it. They are the BEST all-around brushes that also happen to be super affordable (compared to $50+ for some of the “furniture paint brush” brands).

If y’all haven’t tried these, what are you doing with your life?! Come get one: Round brushes at $10 that will make weird shapes like chair spindles easy as pie (and that can be kinda life changing for a painter, believe me 😉) and the Palm Pro Brush also $10 which is a great all around furniture paint brush but also makes cutting in simple and gorgeous with an exact stroke the first time!! Comfy in the hand and weirdly absorbent bristles that hold plenty of paint to eliminate streakiness and are also easy to clean!! Sooooo good! And I’m so excited that we can represent this brand!! ❤️❤️
