The Paint was Fabulous!
The paint is fabulous! We had such fun painting this Rufus Porter style mural with Olde Century Colors.
First we researched Rufus Porter style paintings and murals. Tried to incorporate as many of his trademark images. My friend Betty Brandt, who owns the Old House in Hog Hallow in St. Louis Missouri, had the perfect wall to display a mural. But you have the perfect paint!
Just wanted to say thank you for your information and help about the paint. It is just fantastic to use. The colors are perfect, the pigment is wonderful, absolutely great to work with.

"Barn Find" Cabinet
I have sent some pictures of our "barn find" cabinet. As you can see it was a little rough when we started. With the assistance of a cabinet maker to fix the step-in and the end (where we assume it was built into a wall with a chimney) we brought it home and prepped it. It is painted in the Saltbox Blue Latex. It is stunning. I have done a lot of painting and am always looking for paint that flows easily, convers and dries true to color....Olde Century is about the best I have found. I will be ordering more since I have our cabinet maker duplicating a primitive dry sink, Amish side cabinets, mirror and wall cabinets for a bathroom that we are restoring!
Thanks again for your help and a great product.
They're not quite done painting yet, but here's a picture of your Olde Century Tinderbox brown paint. The professional painters doing the work commented many times how much they like your paint. They said it's a very high quality paint and a pleasure to paint with.
