Did you know that Chalk Paint® turned 25 years old this year?! YES, you read that right. The most fabulous paint, in all the world, is a quarter of a century old! And we, at bathandmore, are celebrating 2 wonderful years of business this Fall. Of course, these two marvelous milestones are worth celebrating!
We’d LOVE for you to celebrate with us at our Chalk Paint® Annie-versary SALE. Come to bathandmore and stock up on your favorite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan colors October 1-7.
Don’t forget that the Lodi Street Faire is October 4th. We will be OPEN on SUNDAY from 8:30 until 3:00 with a booth on Pine Street right in front of the shop. We will also be having LIVE Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan demonstrations, by our highly trained instructors. Sunday is sure to be a FUN day and we hope to see you there.
Want to know more? Call 209-369-2284.
Our in-house “Master of Repurposing“, DeWayne Konz, has been busy as a bee this season crafting giant whimsical dragonflies. If you were to dissect one of these creatures (with your eyes of course), you would see that they are made of repurposed ceiling fan blades and a bedpost. These dragonflies are one of a kind pieces that add a magical touch of whimsy wherever they land.
CHALK PAINT® CLASSES at BATHANDMORE! Our Chalk Paint® Pumpkin Classes are in full swing for Autumn. As usual, we LOVE seeing what our class participants create! Each pumpkin is hand made by DeWayne Konz, but painted by YOU under the expert guidance of trained instructor, Denise Konz. While under Denise’s tutelage, you will learn everything you need to know about properly using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. You get to take home your pumpkin masterpiece and all the skills you need to create larger works of art at home. Imagine what you can do with that old coffee table, dresser, or outdated kitchen or bathroom cabinets. Call 209-369-2284 to sign up.
DeWayne’s been at it again! Check out these fabulous tables fashioned out of repurposed vintage California raisin boxes! They are absolutely beautiful pieces. The care and craftsmanship poured into each handmade piece is obvious.
DeWayne Konz poses with a finished piece.
This California raisin box table is getting finishing touches of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in a custom mix of English Yellow and Arles. Pictures don’t do these tables justice. We highly suggest coming by and seeing them in person!
ON A PERSONAL NOTE….
We’d like to thank everyone for their care and concern as DeWayne and Denise were dealing with the threat of their home being involved in the Butte Fire. We are SO thankful that their home is safe and sound. Although, they are part of the blessed few who didn’t lose their home to the fire, Denise and DeWayne know plenty who did. They are extending an opportunity to help those in desperate need, to us. If you can, please donate a gift card that can be used by people who literally LOST IT ALL. Just drop it off at the counter and the Konz family will be sure it is safely delivered to a family in need.From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

June was a FUN filled month at bathandmore. The American flag Chalk Paint® classes were very popular. The Konz family enjoyed a wonderful Hawaiian vacation during the middle of the month. And we held a fabulous Ladies Night towards the end of June.
DeWayne, Denise, and Dena (aka D³) wasted no time getting back to work after their island adventure. During Ladies night, Bathandmore welcomed Renee’s Boutique, The Makeup & Skin Care Studio, Splendid Sparrow Designs, One of a Kind Designs, and Lovely Girl Mobile Boutique. It was a night of food, fun, fashion and friends!
We had some photo booth fun during this event. Check out our adorable custom Chalk Paint® instagram sign. This is for rent for weddings and special events. Use our Chalk Ink pens to create your personalized event hashtag!
Dena hand painted an incredible Instagram photo frame with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® for the photo booth. As you can see it was put to good use!
Not wanting to be left out during Ladies Night, DeWayne was very stealth with his secret photo bomber moves.
During the evening, Denise gave Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® demonstrations to the crowd. She used Emperor’s Silk, Arles, Dark Wax and Clear Wax to demonstrate a variety of Chalk Paint® techniques. It’s important to remember that Denise and DeWayne are both highly trained by Annie Sloan’s staff. Education is the key to successful home projects. Make the most of your time and money by taking a Chalk Paint® class at Bathandmore.
There were plenty of “oooohs & ahhhhhs” from the crowd as Denise showed them how EASY it is to create a beautiful vintage look when Annie Sloan products are used correctly.
Speaking of Chalk Paint® classes, check out these stunning American flags built by DeWayne Konz and painted by our class participants.
Emperor’s Silk, Primer Red, Burgundy, Old White, Pure white, Aubusson Blue, Greek Blue, and Napoleonic Blue were all very popular colors during the month of June.
Dewayne used reclaimed barn wood and repurposed molding and frames to fashion these creative patriotic flags.
That’s a wrap for June 2015! Have a Happy 4th of July from your friends at Bathandmore.com!

Known as the soap of Stockists, Designers, Artists, Painters, Restoration Junkies, and Faux Finishers; Scrubby has quite the reputation. Scrubby is a fabulous dual purpose product that deserves some attention. Get ready… Get Set… for the skinny on Scrubby.
Scrubby soap comes to us from the Sunshine State of Florida. It is an AMERICAN made product by a family owned and operated company. Scrubby’s cleansing power is derived from ALL NATURAL biodegradable citrus oils. There are NO harsh synthetic cleaning agents in this little loaf of soap!
But wait…there’s more! This creative cleanser contains….wait for it…an actual SCRUBBER! Yes, a SCRUBBER is embedded into the soap! Or the scrubber is infused with the soap. Either way, it’s like they took a super soft loofah-ish brick and tucked it into a dreamy bed of see-through citrusy soap.
Scrubby is the perfect product to use when cleaning up after your Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® projects. For those of us who like to “dive” fingers first into our Chalk Paint®, Scrubby saves the day! The natural citrus oils are non-irritating to the skin and the gentle built-in scrubber aides in effortless cleansing. The scrub pad is also easy on the manicure and gets off the dried paint around the cuticles and under the nails painlessly.
Opening a fresh pack of Scrubby gives you a chance for a little aroma therapy before you clean up. Don’t let this opportunity get away! Peel open your pack and breathe deeply! You will experience the intense mouth watering fragrance of Florida citrus. Refreshing! Now get to scrubbing!
Scrubby’s grease cutting and odor fighting power is perfect for mechanics, cooks and fishermen. Artists and painters also love Scrubby soap for its ability to effectively clean and condition their brushes. Keeping quality brushes cleaned and conditioned gives them extended life.
Now you’ve got the skinny on Scrubby soap. Come on down to Bathandmore, snag your own bar of Orange or Lemon Scrubby and make clean up a little more enjoyable!
