Portola paints specializes in Eco-Friendly finishes and Old World techniques. If you want to give a lighting fixture or furniture piece a worn or antique look, their wrought iron finish combined with Portola's Rust Solution weathers the piece in just a few hours. They encourage customers to come into the store and play around with color swatches in their upstairs loft. Casey and Jamie's background in construction offers customers a trained eye for choosing the right paint color for their space and lighting situation.
As a side note, the roll of brown paper featured above is used to test different paints. However, a few customers have fell in love with its abstract art quality and have actually requested to purchase it to use as gift wrap. Our little secret — when I visited recently, they were currently offering small sheets of the paint splattered brown paper free of charge.
