Balance-of-life begins with your inner self.
There is no denying that Annie Sloan products are some of the finest on the market. When it comes to chalk painting and all the apparatus you need to create some delightful furniture and decorating pieces, Annie Sloane has it all.
Unfortunately, like all finer things in life, it comes at a price which can be prohibitive for many a budding shabby chic enthusiast. My advice is that if you have the funds, keep using Annie Sloane. However, there are less expensive alternatives which can give you the opportunity to experience chalk painting with excellent results, for a fraction of the cost. I choose to use Kookaburra Paints in my workshops, which is proudly made in Australia by the former owner of Porters Paints.
I found my budget getting tighter after semi-retiring, but my passion for chalk paint growing. I made it my mission to source products, which gave me good results, without the price tag. Having done the research, it is my pleasure to share with others via my workshops @ $70.00 / person for four hours of fun and creativity with a light lunch and bubbly included.
See below what to expect when attending our fun workshops. You will find it so easy - it's like child's play!
Bring along a tired or dated small to medium piece of furniture or home wares such as picture/mirror frames, clocks, baskets, boxes, vases etc and you will have them revamped into impressive makeovers by the end of the workshop. Very little preparation is required and all equipment is provided to complete your work on site in our studio.
You will receive ongoing support whenever needed for your continued DIY at home projects via phone or email. We also have stock of chalk paint on hand for $25.00 per 500 ml or 2 x 500 ml (or 1 x litre)_ for $45.00. ** 500 ml of paint will go a long way, so the advantage of buying 2 x 500 ml is having the choice of 2 x colours if desired. **
Additionally, I can offer to restore pieces for you at an agreed price and/or have items for sale occasionally.
