Let the Chair Affair Contest Begin.......

I am going to post the top selections in the "chair affair". It's been fun receiving all the "before and afters" of these chairs and interacting with my new "paint sistas". Before the week is over, one lucky entry will win 1 pot of paint a month for one year, I can't think of a better prize, or maybe the next contests prize will be just as enticing and rewarding. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, I am thinking of something special and I think Lucky 7 Design and House of Anne will be collaborating on this one. Thank you all for participating, it's been fun watching and receiving the magic of
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on tired old chairs and chairs that had no destination.

Before I post the chairs I am going to post a smilebox from the FIRST California Paint 'n' Wine Country Workshop hosted by Sonoma Country Antiques and presented by House of Anne and 3 Oaks Studio, Northern and Southern California Annie Sloan U.S.A. Stockists. Vicki and I had so much fun and loved watching the paint fly while meeting and working with so many lovely ladies and a man! I apologize for my crooked face in the photo's, I was given the pleasure of experiencing an impacted abscessed tooth the day before the workshop....OUCH....I hope I was nice and not the
witch I felt on the inside. It's taken a week, a trip to the Dentist, a laid back weekend and lots of pain pills and antibiotics but I think I'm finally going to make it through this challenge.

A toast to all our other 'sistas' out there........a California law and now, tradition!

Put November 12th on your calendar for the 2nd California Paint 'n' Wine Country Event......I'll post everything this week and you can begin to sign up now. You will love this one, not only will some of the proceeds be given to Thessalonika Family Service for abused children, we will actually be including a table just for these children to create and we a will also be offering Hot Air Balloon rides over Temeculas Wine Country as a pairing of some wine. FUN FUN FUN.....! begins the chairs.......

These are the top 11 let's see who the lucky person will be.  I will post it by week end.
There could be one or two at the most stragglers but the good news is they only have two days to turn them in due to paint back orders.

I wish you all a wonderful week, it's a hot one here in Southern California, oh well, the beauty of where I live is that I am one hour from the beach to cool off.

I will be posting the next contest on Wednesday so get your paint brushes ready.  What will you win, a big surprise!

My first time visiting. Wonderful blog!

My first Annie Sloan project is still a work in progress. I am awaiting replacement handles to finish a 1944 kitchen cabinet. I still need to finish with more wax and sanding, but posted it as I was so excited about it.

I will click to follow your blog. Anxious to learn more.
