Annie Sloan Paint Class

Chalk paint

A couple of weeks ago, I had the oppurtunity to sit in on an Annie Sloan Paint class.  The class was held in Itasca at our Stockist Michelle's classroom(Di Lucca Designs).  I had gone, intending to get a feel for what the classes entailed, for when we put our own together.  Well, I got much more than just that!  I learned a great deal, and enjoyed getting away for the day.

How tempting is this color board.  It makes me want to paint, even more. This shows the paint colors with clear then dark wax on them.

These were some of my trial boards.  Fun!

Check out this table and the classroom floor Michelle painted.  I LOVE this table!  Antilbes green on the table.  The floor was painted with Graphite and Old White.  It looked fab!

I can honestly say that even though I have been painting furniture for years, and using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for about a year now, I feel much more confident with it all.  


With our new confidence, we are working on putting some paint classes of our own together.  Many of our customers have asked if we do paint classes and we feel it's time to offer some.  We are working out the details and hope to offer a couple classes in March.  We are going to start out with just a basic chalk painting class.  In a couple hours, we'll have you in and out and ready to paint on your own!  

Stay tuned!
