  OLDE CENTURY COLORS:  Shades of Colonial Times  

OCC     Olde Century Colors

   Barbara Carbiener, owner of Olde Century Colors, has an extended background in refinishing and restoring antiques. Her deep interest in Colonial colors and finishes led to her starting Olde Century Colors in 1992, with the idea of making available a wider selection of period-correct color paint than was available at the time. Twenty-three years down the line, Olde Century Colors offers as wide a selection of paint in authentic colors as can be found anywhere.  
   These warm, rich earth tones reflect a gracious past and provide contemporary elegance. Careful selection of color is followed up with a unique pigment-grinding process,followed by a traditional method of batchmaking.  These carefully manufactured paints are used mainly on the exterior and walls of old and old-style houses but are also used on floors, cabinets, and a variety of other surfaces. Performance is state of the art, matching any modern paint, but the extra care that goes into the making of it shows, in obvious as well as subtle ways. For instance, the paint will leave a subtle brush stroke in the dried film, a feature characteristic of handcrafted batches of paint in the early 1800s.
