ANNIE SLOAN is coming to Southern California to give her One Day Workshop on Tuesday, March 8th. The cost of the Workshop will be $395 and will include luncheon with Annie. You'll learn Annie's techniques of distressing, textured and layering paints and mixing colors with waxes. You'll leave with sample board moldings plus a completed special project and more. The Workshop will be held at Annette Tatum's Work Room in Santa Monica, CA. You can register on my web site www.houseofanne.net or on this blog site using the "products available" side gadget button. Class size will be limited so register now.

On Sunday, March 6th, Country Roads in Orange, CA will host a book signing on "Creating the French Look" and quick and easy paint transformations from 1 - 3 p.m. On Monday, March 7th, Out of the Blue (still pending so stand bye) in Solana Beach will host a 2 hour demo and book signing from 1 - 3 p.m. followed by Serendipity in Temecula hosting a demo and book signing featuring Annie's book, "quick and easy paint transformations" from 6 - 8 p.m. Come one come all for a fun and memorable time.

Annie will begin her US tour in New Orleans, LA taking her then to Mississippi, California, Texas, North Carolina and New Jersey. Annie will be traveling from Oxford, England for this fantastic opportunity and is probably the main reason for the painted furniture revolution through her lively and creative approach to painting. She has a strong desire to communicate and empower people creatively, which she does through her books, workshops and paint.

The most unique aspect of Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint is that you can paint directly over varnished and waxed furniture. No need to prime, sand, strip or prepare the piece prior to painting. It is truly amazing and a wonderful paint to use. We always recommend that you seal your piece with Hannant's Clear Wax after painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to seal and protect. This patent pending Chalk Paint was created in England by world renowned decorative painter and author Annie Sloan.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is the Best Paint on the market for painting furniture. It can be used on almost any surface including old varnished pieces, melamine, metal, floors and walls. I encourage you to pull up Annie's web site, blog and face book pages for more information on her talents. Annie Sloan is to the world of decorative painting and techniques what Rachel Ashwood is to Shabby Chic.

NOW, for another slide show of "where am i?" I have had so much fun with my little road trips since I started representing Annie Sloan and her products. Tuesday after the New Year rang in I headed north to discover new places, at least for me, in the Sacramento area. I absolutely loved the doors I walked through, the people I met and what I got to see. I hope you will enjoy all the "stuff", vintage, antiques and shabby chic creations I appreciated and wanted to take home with me....and I would have IF I still had my eclectic design shop on Whidbey Island in the N.W. I want to thank my three wonderful friends for sharing this road trip...memories where created, new roads taken, lots of u turns and so much laughter my stomach still hurts. Thank you Shirley, Diane and Sharon, I look forward to more in 2011. Enjoy the show and please look later in the week for some more.
