Not Perfect, Just Better!

Here at Charmingly Incorrect, we have lots of hand made, re-used, and re-loved items. We take used, unloved items headed for the landfill and bring them back to life. Our specialty is our attention to detail to make every piece something you are proud to have in your home. 

Rest assured, I take my pieces very seriously, using the highest quality, safest, and environmentally friendly  products on the market. Wise Owl Paint is a premium paint line with two different paint types to meet your specific needs. Cabinets, front doors, floors, etc., are  done with Wise Owl's One Hour Enamel line. One Hour Enamel (OHE) is an industrial strength water-based enamel that is scratch resistant, block stains, and cures in one hour vs. 30 days! It's science is unparalleled!  Wise Owl's Chalk synthesis line provides more coverage and a safe, non-VOC paint that is easy to distress or blend without releasing harsh chemicals into the air.  Plus, the larger color palette is always growing, giving you more choices for your project. Don't forget the primers and finishing products, too. The Furniture Salve is a miracle in a can!

We also have plenty of fun gift items. Looking for a unique item for a friend, family member that's "impossible" to buy for, teacher, co-worker, or whomever? You won't be disappointed in the quality and originality. You can -- and should -- even treat yourself!

Come see us SOON.

Wise Owl Premium Paints & Products

Salve Oil and brushes

Wise Owl Paint was born from a sense of pride that comes with rescuing an item from the trash to make a cherished piece again. Wise Owl premium products make your vision come to life.

We are dedicated to the environment:

The entire Wise Owl product line is built upon our green focus: free of harsh chemicals and solvents. Our versatile Chalk Synthesis Paint has zero VOCs and our incredible One Hour Enamel has low VOCs so you don't worry about toxic smells in your home. 

Chalk Synthesis Paint:

Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paint has supreme adhesion, is self-leveling, easy to apply, and has incredible coverage. A single pint can cover up to 75 square feet! Our dynamic color palette has vintage inspired pigments and trend setting hues. We often offer bold seasonal colors to complement our permanent color palette.

One Hour Enamel Industrial Strength Waterborne Paint:

Ideal for Cabinets & Front doors!

Completely cures in ONE HOUR! No more 30 day cure times & it's water-based for easy clean up, so no more stinky mineral spirits!

One Hour Enamel utilizes one of the strongest acrylic resins paired with superior synthetic pigments that dries quickly to a premium, industrial-strength finish which is highly scratch and weather-resistant and poses no fire hazard or objectionable odor. You will be able to put doors, windows, or cabinets back in use quicker than competitive acrylic finishes. Imagine painting your kitchen in the morning, and entertaining guests that night! 

Wise Owl One Hour Enamel is truly cutting edge technology.

We recommend using Wise Owl Stain Eliminating  (water-based) Primer to strengthen adhesion, especially on slippery surfaces, metals, and plastics with the One Hour Enamel.

Furniture Salve is an all-natural salve that can be used on many, many surfaces. Salve moisturizes sealed or painted wood, eliminates smells from old pieces, cleans oxidation from hardware, moisturizes leather boots, coats, car interiors, etc. Use it on rubber tires or dashboards to help make them look brand-new. Salve protects and beautifies older or reclaimed wood, too. So natural, use it without gloves and rub any remaining salve into your hands to moisturize skin or cuticles.  Salve comes in several incredible scents. My favorite use for furniture salve is inside older pieces to re-moisturize wood, eliminate smells, bacteria, and fungus.

Looking for something specific? We have lots of amazing pieces waiting in the wings for their chance to be pretty again. Maybe we have what you're looking for! Pick colors and finishes and get a truly custom piece for your home.
