Homes & Interiors: Valspar Creates New Paints Specifically For Furniture And Cabinet Projects

Valspar Paint Introduces Two New Specialty Products – Valspar Furniture Paint and Valspar Cabinet Enamel.

Every year, eight million tons of discarded furniture end up in landfills, often trashed because of minor blemishes like watermarks, dings and scratches. Two new specialty products developed by Valspar Paint Furniture Paint and Cabinet Enamel – offer consumers an economical and easy solution for bringing such castoffs back to life. The paints are the linchpin to Valspar’s new cheeky PSA-style digital campaign named #TheRehabProject which encourages consumers to rescue and refurbish old discarded furniture through inspiration and how-to videos.

Valspar Furniture Paint and Valspar Cabinet Enamel are available in hundreds of Valspar color options and can be purchased for $24.99 per quart at Lowe’s stores nationwide.

These latest Valspar formulations are designed to arm both the most proficient as well as brand new DIY consumer with the ideal coatings to refinish, revive and reinvent an existing piece that might otherwise get kicked to the curb,” said Russ Neale, Director of Product Management and Innovation at Valspar. “Furniture and cabinet makeovers account for more than half of the paint projects that consumers tackle on their own. So, now Valspar Furniture Paint and Valspar Cabinet Enamel is the perfect go-to. Both paints require minimal prep time and yield completed surfaces requiring little to no maintenance over time. We wanted to be sure we were providing products that would give consumers the confidence to pick up a paint brush and transform something they love, avoiding ‘Pinterest fails’ and achieving results they can point to with pride and a sense of accomplishment.

Valspar’s Furniture Paint is an oil-enriched satin finish paint formulated to provide smooth durable coverage that’s resistant to spills, scuffs, stains and discoloration caused by moisture. It adheres to most surfaces, even laminate, with minimal priming and sanding needed, making it an ideal solution for upgrading furniture, whether for indoor or outdoor use. Two coats are required for best results.

Cabinets found in bathrooms and kitchens typically require a coating that withstands frequent cleaning and exposure to steam, and Valspar’s Cabinet Enamel delivers that in one fell swoop. The paint comes in a semi-gloss finish featuring a non-yellowing formula, and like Furniture Paint, the coating adheres most surfaces with no priming and minimal to no sanding needed. Drying to a smooth factory-finish quality, one of the added benefits is that doors and drawers will not stick.

To further boost confidence plus inspire, Valspar has produced a series of “Rehab Project” videos, accessible online at Valspar Rehab Project. Spotlighting a variety of mini-makeovers that can be accomplished by using the new paints and completed in as little as one weekend, the step-by-step process is fully demonstrated. Also available and echoing these projects are “recipe cards” that not only detail the painting how-tos but also guide on what supplies are required, prepping and cleanup.

Holiday Entertaining: Hennessy Pays Tribute to the Roots of its Savoir-Faire With the Master Blender’s Selection Nº1

At Hennessy, Cognac is not made – it is crafted.

Now, Master Blender Yann Fillioux reveals “Master Blender’s Selection Nº1”, the first in a series of single-batch bespoke Cognacs.

Every artist, composer and master craftsman has a secret project on the side, an endeavor pursued simply for creativity’s sake. For Hennessy Master Blender Yann Fillioux, it was Master Blender’s Selection N°1“, which in contrast to the many celebrated Cognacs he has composed throughout his distinguished career, this latest blend is a very personal signature that was only ever meant to be produced in a single, limited batch.

master-blenders-selection-no-1-by-hennessy

Master Blender’s Selection No.1 By Hennessy

In French, a project like Master Blender’s Selection N°1 is called a “coup de coeur” — literally, a heart-stopper, love at first sight or, as in this case, a passion project. It began in Maison Hennessy’s reserves, one of the largest, most extraordinary reserves of eaux-de-vie in the world.

As the guardian of Hennessy’s reserves for half a century, Yann Fillioux knows every eau-de-vie stored there. Master Blender’s Selection N°1 came to life during a blending session, a moment of unbridled creativity. Innovative, robust and completely devoid of artifice, it is a truly bespoke creation.

MASTER BLENDER’S SELECTION N°1: A unique signature

Creating Cognac requires patience and a constant dialogue between time, the elements, raw materials and skilled hands and minds. Little by little, each exchange gives rise to something precious that can only be realized through passion and a savoir-faire honed over 250 years of Cognac making.

With Master Blender’s Selection N°1, Fillioux captures the essence of his art. This one-of-a-kind blend captures a particular moment in time and embodies his constant quest for excellence, extraordinary sensory memories and a perfect knowledge of Hennessy’s reserves.

Fillioux and the Tasting Committee structured the Master Blender’s Selection N°1 by defining a first selection of eaux-de-vie. They then narrowed their selection down to 80 to 100 eaux-de-vie and grouped them according to their elegance, character and suppleness. The eaux-de-vie were then aged in both young and old French oak casks. When the time was right, the Cognac was bottled at 43°C – “cask strength” – in order to release its powerful aromatic tones as well as delicate, lingering spicy notes. Crafted as a single batch, it is a limited edition Cognac with a round and rich subtlety that has a bright amber color with a golden sheen. When it embraces both nose and palate, there is an unmistakable presence of lightly grilled, unshelled almonds and candied apricots with a faintly sweet flavor. It is recommended that it be tasted neat or with three bright ice cubes. Continue reading
