Outside and in

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You have met the Viking Building now meet its owner! I met Molly Mansker during its restoration but only showed you the exterior of the building and now  I’d like to take you inside to see Molly’s fun new business called Ole and Inga Vintage Boutique. Poulsbo is referred to as “Little Norway” and Ole and Inga are not only sturdy Norwegian names, they are also the names of beloved family members of Molly’s. I spent a lovely afternoon recently talking to her about her business and thought I’d share what she’s up to. She started her own business after having to travel so far to procure Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and waxes for the many painting restoration projects she was involved in. She is now an authorized dealer,  has learned the many techniques and is rolling out the culmination of her creativity, work and know-how for us all in the Poulsbo area to enjoy!

Not only can you purchase completely restored vintage furnishings (of which I’ve posted a tasty few), but you can purchase the paint and supplies and even take classes she teaches on various techniques for working with Chalk Paint and waxes to make your own projects! She has already found a following of others who love this chalk paint and is bound to pick up many more as people get a chance to use this paint that she says requires NO surface preparation to paint. You can paint over a piece of furniture with even the glossiest finish and it will bond nicely and won’t rub off. Think of the flea market possibilities! The paint comes in a number of beautiful colors and is designed to mix well to create any number of your own colors (this is what gets me excited, and she’s even asked me if I might teach a class on color!)

Stop by and take a look at her very creative shop and vintage projects, both completed and in progress.
