Paint That Actually KILLS Specific Bacteria Just By Being On Your Walls #welcometothefuture

If you’ve read Vintage Revivals for any period of time you know that I absolutely love Sherwin-Williams. There are definitely perks to this, the coolest one being I get top secret insider info. I have been chomping at the bit to share with you guys the most incredible Sherwin-Williams paint line on the market, and I’m not saying that lightly.  It’s hard to top my heart and soul Emerald, but I think Paint Shield may have done it.


Hold on tight cause your mind is about to be blown.

We all know about antimicrobial agents that help inhibit the growth of microorganisms right? Well, Paint Shield® is like that…on steroids. It is microbicidal, which means that it actually has the power to KILL certain bacteria. Like as in living bacteria is going on its merry way and when those certain bacteria come in contact with the surfaces painted with Paint Shield, the bacteria are given a swift kick into the afterlife. Death. Dead. Buh-Bye. Zapped. Gone-zola. Belly Up. Stiff as a board, and all of the other adorable euphemisms you can think of.

WHAT?!? Paint can do that?!

Paint Shield microbicidal paint has been in development for many years (think Nickelback and Desperate Housewives).

It was originally developed for hospitals, retirement homes, daycares, and athletic facilities to kill greater than 99.9% of †Staph (Staphylococcus aureus), MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), E. coli (Escherichia coli), VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis) and Enterobacter aerogenes within two hours of exposure on painted surfaces.


Then they realized people don’t want those bacteria in their homes either and voila! here we are today!

Paint Shield is EPA-Registered and has the power to kill bacteria† on the painted surface for up to 4 years when the integrity of the surface is maintained. I cant even imagine having the same wall color for 4 years!

Crazy right? I mean, you instantly get 100 mom points just by using this paint to help protect your family.

And if that isn’t enough, it brushes and rolls on and is just as scrubbable as any other Sherwin-Williams paint. AND it’s available in 550 colors.

Paint Shield microbicidal paint is available at your local Sherwin-Williams store, so pop in and grace them with your beautiful face, pick their brains, and leave with the best quality paint on the market.

Also feel free to show up in your 4 day ponytail, I do all the time.

Bringing Vintage Chairs Back from the Brink Using Penetrol

When Alex and I moved into our first apartment, we were decorating novices. While we tried our best, we came up short in many ways, the most obvious being that we were so anxious to have our new home "finished," that we rushed out and bought what we needed. This resulted in a cookie-cutter straight-out-of-a-catalog look that did little to reflect our personalities, hobbies, or style. 

As the years have passed, I've learned to better appreciate the approach of curating a carefully selected mix of both new and old. Working in vintage finds, souvenirs and art from our travel adventures, and pieces passed down to us from family and friends along with new pieces creates a more layered, inviting, and less cookie cutter look. It's ultimately a formula that I've found results in the successful completion of a space that is comfortable, interesting to look at, and reflective of our personalities and who we are. 

Now that the majority of our focus is on renovating, decorating, and projects in our new home, my approach to its decor is to heavily use these lessons I've learned over the years. While many people's first reaction in a new space is to run out and buy as many news things to fill it as they can, we're taking a much more measured (and budget friendly) approach to our home's decor. We've been extremely fortunate to have many friends and family members gift furniture and accessories that they could no longer use. So last year when our neighbors offered us a pair of vintage garden chairs that didn't quite work in their home (and couldn't be returned), we jumped at the chance to become their new owners.

As you can see, this pair of vintage metal arm chairs have a beautiful patina and I loved the blend of several shades of green and turquoise. However, they were pretty rusty, so I knew I wanted to clean them up while still preserving much of the original paint. The goal was to both seal them to better protect them from outdoor weather while preserving their patina, and also preserving the pants of anyone that might choose to sit on these beauties.
