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.

Whipping Our Foursquare Home’s Exterior Back Into Shape

Though it's been a little quiet on the blog lately, we've been very hard at work on several ongoing house projects. 

The most major of our projects has been our focus on the overall exterior appearance of our Foursquare. As a realtor, I'm keenly aware of curb appeal, and how small differences on the exterior of your home can truly set the tone for how you feel on the interior of your home. But as an owner of a house with wood siding, a large yard, and a lot of plantings around the house, I know what an overwhelming endeavor it can be to stay on top of those items that impact the curb appeal of your home. 

In our case, I'm not so concerned about what people driving or walking by our home think. Instead I'm more concerned with how the curb appeal makes me feel, or how it makes our visitors approaching the house feel. I want our home's exterior to set a tone of relaxation for all of our visitors, and it's hard to feel relaxed when you approach a yard of long unkempt grass, flower beds full of weeds, and significant sections of cracked or peeling paint on the house. After all, it's our goal to have more relaxing evenings like this.

This summer we've decided to approach the curb appeal and exterior maintenance of our home in three distinct phases.
