Miss Tobi has taken larger space

She and our very own Annie Sloan stockist have joined forces!  They will be using the space to sell their own projects as well as make the paint and wax available to their customers.  Here are a few of the new pieces:

Another Annie Sloan project completed!

I have to say I stepped out of my comfort zone on this one  (and the discouraging comment from the Hubs was no help).

When I first painted it in Paris Grey it just needed a little something more.  So I mixed some black glaze, had a ball applying and removing it, then I distressed and waxed.

His comment you ask – You’ve muddied the paint – or words to that affect.  Uh oh, but I thought it looked pretty darn good!  After a fabric search (I am not a fabric person either!), I came home with three choices and we decided on this one.

Your turn to weigh in now – my partners seem to like it a LOT!

The more I use it, the more I LOVE it!

Annie Sloan chalk paint I mean.  I used graphite for the first time recently and have to say I think the color is wonderful!  We’ve sold hundreds of dark black pieces in the past but this one is a contender!!

A hard color to capture accurately - kind of like a dark slate tile.

I’ve recently used the Paris Grey-Miss Sophia has painted several things in it before and I knew I liked it.  Now I LOVE it.  This old cedar chest was sad but after a bit of gluing and clamping and two coats of grey plus distressing and a coat of clear wax – Voila!  Ready for many more years of service. (It had me at the applique so I took it home where it has sat for a couple of years.)

 Our “personal” stockist is taking training this week and she will be happy to offer classes for all interested in the near future!  Meanwhile, she is fully stocked and ready to share all her paint and wax!!
