Kirby paints are made here in the US. Kirby paints have been around since the 1800,s. If your ever in New Bedford Mass go take a look at where the paints are made and meet the owners. I use them both on boats and in my home. They do exceptionally well on the hulls and interiors of yachts where salt, sun and water are ever present. I love the historical colors for all my wooden floors & built in fitted furniture. Here Dulcinea has been painted in Kirbywww.kirbypaints.com paints.

Here I have painted a floor in Kirby paints.

I have a thing for black window sashes. Not only do I like the way black makes a frame ( when looking for the inside) but I also love how Black Sash show off the details in historic built windows. Some how black even makes a factory built (way to perfect) window look good. Every view from a window is contained and highlighted by the black sash. It works the way matting and framing enhances a picture or a painting. Now that IĀ am painting my sash in black I am also concentrating on the landscape that falls into view when walking by that window. If I pay attentionĀ and do that right I can create worlds within worlds with my window sash.

What Paint am I using- Fine Paints of Europe Hollandac.

Julien is chiseling out some rot and will dutchmen a piece of heart wood Pine into the cavity. He uses a three to one or four to one ratio on windows and doors. ( three times along the grain and one time across the grain) On a wooden Boat its twelve to one.
