My Story

Why? I’m doing my part, to keep toxins out of your paint, the air you breathe, your home and away from your children!

I have always been “that” girl. The one who seemed to be allergic to everything. One day sitting in yet another Dr. office covered in a rash struggling to breathe, a doctor finally said something that made sense. “Everyone is allergic to these toxins. Your body is sending you signs before cancer or other serious health problems happen.” THAT was my “A-HA!” moment. I had to make a decision- I can stop doing what I love, or get out there and find something safe that will hold up to life.
With lots of prayer, blessings, and a few miracles, I met some wonderful friends who shared the same environmental and health concerns that I had. I put my faith in The Almighty and “jumped”. Shabby Paints was born…

Every Shabby Paints product is non-toxic, ZERO V.O.C., and made/owned in the USA.

Never Wax again!

What the heck is VAX & reVAX?

During my journey of painting and being sick I found that I hated the waxing process almost as much as I hated how sick it made me.  So I invented VAX. A Varnish product that finishes with the look of wax but doesn’t have to be buffed or reapplied. So put away that toxic can of wax and get ready to wipe on a quick drying finish that will give you a lifetime of enjoyment without the headache! reVAX is our tinted top coat: White, Hazelnut, Black & Pearl

What is VAX?

Matte Finish

An easy to apply permanent top coat

With out the Buffing

What is reVAX?

Tinted Top Coat/Glaze

An easy to apply tinted top coat

No Buffing Required!

Supporting Small Town America

One small business at a time.

Shabby Paints is a true American made and owned business.  

One of the benefits of International Trade, and a free market economy, is choice. If market demand is high, goods from all over the world become easily available to us. More choice means competition and competition brings the highest quality products at the best prices. So it’s no surprise that many boutique paint companies originate overseas, and then come to the U.S. to vie for a share of the market. At Shabby Paints, we’re proud to offer a superior alternative.

All Shabby Paints’ products are developed, manufactured, and packaged in the U.S., which means a much smaller carbon footprint is left behind in order for you to get your products. In addition, U.S. production means sizable savings on shipping costs to our Retailers, which are then passed to our customers through lower pricing.
