The Painted Vieux is a unique shopping destination located just outside of downtown Fort Worth. The shop is one of Fort Worth’s hidden gems and isn’t like a traditional retail space. Upon entering the space, customers are greeted with a plethora of home decor items, painting supplies, and several one-of-a-kind painted pieces.
Tucked away at the back of the space is a large workshop area where monthly painting classes are held for DIY-ers and professional painters who want to join the Chalk Paint® revolution. Whether a customer is in search of a signature piece for the home or wants to update an older piece with a fresh coat of paint, The Painted Vieux has a little something for everyone.
The Painted Vieux offers a variety of home decor pieces encompassing a range of styles, from industrial Parisian chic to urban rustic. Fueled by her passion for home decor and interior design, owner Staci Belew opened The Painted Vieux in the summer of 2013 with the goal of creating a fun and inspiring shopping environment. As a mother and an owner of two small businesses, Staci ‘s mission is to offer local consumers a source for home decor, gifts, and decorative painting materials at an affordable price without sacrificing design and quality.
The Painted Vieux is the Fort Worth Stockist for Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. Chalk Paint® has changed how the world views furniture painting and faux finishing. Gone are the days full of hours of laborious prep, application, and clean up. Chalk Paint® is a low VOC decorative paint developed by Annie Sloan more than 25 years ago. It very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outside on just about any surface. Chalk Paint® can be used to revitalize old furniture, walls, cabinetry, ceilings, and floors with ease. It is versatile, easy to use, and a whole lot of fun! Chalk Paint® has made painted finishes and furniture accessible to everyone.
While navigating through the shop, one can find samples of gilded, crackled, stenciled, textured, glazed, and pearlized painted surfaces and furniture. These seemingly complex finishes were created by combining Chalk Paint® with Artisan Enhancements products. The Painted Vieux is the largest retailer of Artisan Enhancements products in Texas.
Artisan Enhancements is a female owned, North Texas company that develops and manufactures eco-friendly paint mediums and sealers. Artisan Enhancements products are often favored by parents and expecting mothers because they are natural and do not contain any harsh chemicals or toxins like traditional paint, finishing, and sealer products. Artisan Enhancements also manufactures a variety of painting tools, decorative painting accessories, and stencils. These products are easy to use and were designed for both beginners and experts. They were developed to enhance and elevate any decorative painting project. Artisan Enhancements products can be used to create gorgeous, professional, multi-dimensional, layered, and textured finishes effortlessly.
