Today we were in Porter’s Paints at GS1 Centro On James in Newfarm. Joy, whom obviously has had years of experience with using the milk paints, was more helpful than I could have hoped. She was very kind and gave me a lot of information and insight into the various paints, methods of application and the most popular colours. I picked each of her words up like a juicy treat and stored them all in an air-locked jar for future use. After speaking with Joy, I am confident that we have definitely made the best decision by using the Porter’s Milk Paints on our chairs and other furniture. I am going to pull out the brushes as soon as I am done on this post and give the new colours a try as so far we have only used the Oyster White. I think today I will give Sableux a go because it looks good enough to eat! I think our French Oval Back Carver will be Sableux with some sumptuous velvet upholstery. When she is done I will post her photo.
I digress, I also wanted to mention that a few weeks back I was at Trade Tools in Coopers Plains and recieved so much helpful advise and honest feedback from Craig that I will remember it always and go back that shop anytime I need a new tool or even a box of staples. Craig was very informative and helped me pick out a compressor, spray gun and staple gun. He took the time to show me how to use them and to understand my needs. He didn’t try to sell me anything I did not need and even tested the compressor before putting it in my car.
Thanks Joy and Craig, there should be more people like you!
