Annie Sloan Work Book Club

We hosted our first Work Book Club meeting at Total Bliss a few weeks ago!  Check out the Asian Style Colors!

Who says you have to use a paintbrush to paint with?
We got messy with our fingers as we worked with the bold, deep rich hues in the Asian Style Group.
We also talked about how to mix color and how to add Old White to any of these colors to get lighter versions of the original color.
One of our favorites was adding Old White to Arles to get a lovely softer yellow!
Everyone left SUPER excited about our next Work Book Club Meeting!

February 12th at 10 am and at 6 pm!

31 Days of ASCP, Day 13, Our Shop is Total Bliss!

We are blessed to have a retail space to call our own!  
We recently spruced up our space!  
We work out of a FABULOUS store in Summerfield, NC, called Total Bliss.  We discovered this shop about a week after it opened a little over 2 years ago and it has been one of our favorites ever since!  We were overjoyed when Nancy, the shop owner, said yes to selling Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and yes to having us {aka.} sell our painted pieces and teach classes!
The makeover is just about complete!
We started by purchasing these bookcases {that had been on either side of a massive media center} at a local consignment shop.

The received two coats of CoCo and the detail was highlighted with Pure White and distressed.
What about the fabulous chalkboard between the bookcases?  
Here is the before on that one!  It was a huge picture that hung in my kitchen for years.  It has been sitting in my garage for at least 2 years now.  Almost taken to Goodwill on numerous occasions.
We did a simple makeover by painting 3 coats of CoCo right over the picture.  The frame was painted Pure White.  Without wax the Chalk Paint is just like a chalkboard!  So, we now have a custom made chalkboard to keep everyone informed of all the latest classes and events at Total Bliss!!
We have also made sample boards in each color and displayed them on the wall!
We’d love to have you stop in and see it if you can!  There is a lot more besides Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Hueology furniture!
