Loot's Find of the Week: Test Tube Vases


This is an unusual creation and it makes a unique centerpiece.  


The stiff, metal wires, coming from the base, wrap around each test tube and suspend them in the air. 


The test tubes make perfect bud vases for displaying colorful blooms. 

We love this contraption!


Only at Loot!  $48.

Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint for Your Cabinets

Louis Blue Cabinet with Annie Sloan Clear Wax  

Painting your cabinets is the most economical way to remodel.  For a small investment and a little work, you can make a tremendous difference in the way you feel about your kitchen or bathroom.  If you would rather have someone else do the painting for you, call us and we will be happy to give you an estimate (831) 247-4571.




Chalk Paint® decorative paints by Annie Sloan are wonderful to use on cabinetry for many reasons. Chalk Paint® saves time because there is no need to remove your existing cabinet finish, whether you are working with a painted or stained surface.  Chalk Paint® adheres so well that you do not even need to use a primer! Annie Sloan clear wax provides durability over the paint, making it easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth and protecting the painted finish from grease, water, and dirt.  Chalk Paint® is extremely low in VOC's, making it perfect for using indoors.  When you paint with latex, the paint gives off fumes for days or even weeks after painting. 

What we love the most about using Chalk Paint® decorative paints by Annie Sloan is the professional finishes this paint creates.  Your kitchen will look like you spent lots of money on custom cabinetry!  With 30 colors to choose from and dark wax for antiquing, we know you can find the perfect hue for your home.
