Usually, when the British are coming to Boston it is in reference to Paul Revere and his famous ride. Or we are joking about some friends or family hopping across the pond.
This time, it is one of my idols. Annie Sloan is crossing the pond and touring the states to teach us about her wonderful paints. I'm so excited! She is coming to 8 cities over the next few weeks.
Many of you know, I am slightly obsessed with chalk paint. I've painted bureaus, mirrors, lamps, pillows, chairs - anything I can get my hands on. Her paints are so easy to use, dry so quickly and the colors are beautiful.
She recently posted an amazing piece on color on her blog. I'm hoping to learn more about the mixing of colors and painting techniques on in this hands-on course. For those, who are unfamiliar with Annie Sloan and her chalk paints you may enjoy this video of her:
She's pretty amazing, huh?
I'm so very excited to meet Annie and learn some tips from her as well as meet up again with my good friend, Nancy Chace, of the Sea Rose Cottage. Can't wait to meet Shaunna of Perfectly Imperfect! It was through Shaunna's blog that I first learned about chalk paint and I'm so grateful. I hope to catch up with Jessica of Four Generations One Roof and other bloggers!
For more information on the tour and to register for one of her classes, click the Annie Sloan Unfolded image above.
So, who's going to join me in Beantown and drink our dirty wataahhh or some Sam Adams?!? Can't wait to see you all and meet Annie!
