New Fusion Mineral Paint "All In One Stain and Finishing Oil"......

New in the "Fusion Mineral Paint" line of products is the "All In One Stain and Finishing Oil". Comes in a variety of colours plus clear!
It has a combination of natural oils and resins that penetrate into the wood fibres to create a durable, scratch resistant, waterproof finish.
It does not leave a surface film that sits on top, rather it soaks in and becomes part of your wood.
It is ideal for wooden table tops as it has excellent resistance to abrasions and can be washed over and over again!






Available in store now!

Hello Bonjour....

Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
