Embracing the Greener Things

January 06, 2017

Happy 2017! We made it. And with the new year comes many resolutions, mantras, and styles. With Pantone's new color of the year, we're ready to embrace a wilder side of decorating with Greenery. We know, green can be an intimidating color to bring inside. It packs a bright punch, giving any room a revival. That doesn't mean we should shy away from it though. As Pantone puts it, "Greenery is nature's neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world."

So we say go for it! Let's immerse ourselves in this new color. And as time goes on and your greens begin to fade or chip, we're there for you with touch-up materials at the ready.

Ultra Marks

Our favorite touch-up tool and the easiest way to get creative is with Ultra Marks. You typically use these wood stain markers to replace the color of worn or damaged areas of furniture. They contain light fast pigments that seal, stain and finish making it a three in one deal. Ideal for edges and scratches, they are compatible with all types of finishes, including painted furniture. And they come in plenty shades of green.

Blendal Sticks

A close second favorite are the Blendal Sticks. Available in many shades, but only one of green, these color replacement sticks are perfect for alterating wood repairs. Blendal Sticks are designed so you can use as many as you would like, blending them together, to achieve the perfect match.

FIl Stik

Last but not least are Fil Stiks, used to fill in nicks and scratches quickly and easily. These will work on almost anything green you decide to fill your home with like leather furniture, picture frames, wood, and plastics. Fil Stiks are rubbed on and then use something similar to a credit card to scrape away excess putty and wax.
