Introducing The Painted Perch

By Colleen Brock, Owner of The Painted Perch


Although I initially pursued a career in residential mortgage lending, I returned to my true passion for the arts in 2011, which also allowed me to focus on my other passion of becoming a stay-at-home mom to my two small children. I became a DIYer, refinishing furniture for resale, which helped express not only my artistic passion, but also helped supplement our family’s income. It was during this time, after experimenting with a variety of paint lines from different manufacturers, that I discovered Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint. I was won over immediately after trying out my first sample.

I became an exclusive distributor of Maison Blanche, marketing it at the retail level in Farragut two years ago before opening my very own retail store, The Painted Perch, in November 2014. Located in convenient Farragut, you’ll discover everything you’ll need to professionally refinish your own furniture. Also, if you’re a novice, we’ll even teach you what you will need to know to start your very own DIY project.

Maison Blanche is a rich, thick, creamy, luxurious furniture paint that dries to our signature smooth and velvety finish, requiring no stripping, sanding, or priming. Our exclusive formula contains chalk and will adhere to almost any surface.

Maison Blanche Paint Company’s Vintage Furniture Paint does not contain chemical drying agents. This allows for a longer “open time.” The paint is allowed to settle and smooth out as it dries with minimal occurrence of chalk balling and brush strokes and is low in organic volatile compounds, making it eco-friendly. This water-based paint has little to no odor; you can create your masterpiece just about anywhere without fear of reprisal from your delicate senses.

Maison Blanche Paint is available in 42 beautiful colors. Finish and protect with one of their four antiquing waxes, three lime waxes, or two varnish finishes. As if that weren’t enough, also check out our eight colors of shimmer waxes, embossing cream, glazes, antiquing dust, crackle medium, outdoor paint, and our new lime paint.

In addition to our extensive line of Maison Blanche products and classes, we also carry another amazing brand of paint called Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, which is created by a very popular blogger and artist, Marian Parsons, also know as Miss Mustard Seed. This line of paint is truly authentic. It is completely natural, only containing four ingredients, and is VOC free.  Whether you are after a buttery, smooth finish or the authentic “chippy” look, this paint is like no other!  It is currently available in 18 beautiful hues, and an additional six European colors are being introduced this month!  

The Painted Perch also sells painted furniture and home décor pieces. If you’re not so inclined, or if you just don’t have the time, we can even paint your furniture items for you.

So whether you’re a seasoned professional or a novice, I invite you to visit The Painted Perch to discover just how you, too, can magically transform virtually any surface, both inside and outside of your home, and achieve the professional results you’re looking for.
