Cassina Tv: Take 11

The Charleston Tea Plantation is the home of American Classic Tea, tea grown 100% in America. It is located on picturesque Wadmalaw Island in the heart of South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Today the Charleston Tea Plantation offers more than just a cup of fresh tea! Thanks to the Bigelow Family, the true working tea farm presents a learning experience unlike any other in the country. Its grounds include 127 acres of tea plants, a working Tea Factory and a charming Plantation Gift Shoppe. They also host events throughout the year including the First Flush Festival, a musical festival to celebrate the first harvest of tea, which featured The Avett Brothers and other local bands this year. In this month’s episode of Cassina TV, we sit down with William Hall, owner of the Tea Plantation, to learn more about this unique Charleston landmark!

“Summer Painting Tips to Paint Like a Pro”

Summer is a great time to update the inside or outside of your home. The best way to do it is with a fresh coat of paint. These painting tips will help you get started:
1. Consider the location of your home. Homes in the Old Village are subject to a higher content of salt than with inland structures. Due to the ocean air your painter may recommend a latex paint. Latex paint is more flexible than oil based paint. This is important for wood homes. Wood breathes as it expands and contracts in the hot weather. A flexible paint will react well to contraction and expansion.
• Invest in high quality products. High quality paint is more expensive than standard paint, but it better withstands the conditions that coastal homes are subject to.
• Preparation is key. Without properly preparing the surface, paint has a slim chance of standing the test of time. If you have peeling paint, you must scrape, sand, and remove it entirely.
• Check for any signs of wood damage. If you have peeling paint, make sure to check the wood boards carefully and check for signs of warping. It is critical to remove any rotting or damaged board before painting.
