This Feature Friday is about a local Louisville business women, who has just recently started her own business. Her name is Brandy Siemens. Her company is Vintage Style and Designs. She is the local distributor of Annie Sloan Chalk paint. This paint is amazing, and has been around for a while. We are lucky that Brandy is able to offer it to use locally.
In Brandy’s own words…
“Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is a line of paint that is best known for its ability to stick to most anything without sanding or priming first! It saves a great deal of prep time on any paint project. It is a very low VOC paint. Made right here in the USA! Annie herself is an artist/designer from England who has created this line with 28 great colors. It distresses quite easily and you use her soft wax to give it a wonderful finish. Her whole process is very simple. She says, “It’s a girls paint, but boys can use it too!”
I have always loved to antique and find pieces of furniture to bring back to life. And so now, I am making this love my life with Vintage Style and Designs. This allows me to use my background in interior design and art history and still be a stay at home mom!!
I have just started a retail space located in Traderbaker’s Consignments Plus at 5622 Bardstown Rd in Fern Creek (Creekside Terrace Shopping Center) and I have a website coming soon. I just started the FB page.
