First of all – real quick. Notice the new navigation bar at the top? If not, refresh. Ahh, there we go. Much better now. : )
Paint? Yes – we’re having a paint giveaway. I don’t know about you, but I have a few pieces of furniture that are ready for a little update. I’m actually planning to embark on a little painting project sometime during the Christmas break … I hope. That darn “spare time” keeps running away from me but the ideas are so in my head. : )
The product I’m planning to use is the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It looks amazing. And that’s what we’re giving away! A randomly selected winner will receive a huge Holiday Gift Basket of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! This includes 2 quarts of paint (your choice of colors), Clear Wax, Dark Wax, Creating the French Look (book by Annie Sloan), 2” Chip Brush, 3” Chip Brush, 20 count roll of cheesecloth, and a Sample Deck of all the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors.
Retail value = $198
Um, yeah. Pretty sweet. You know what’s even sweeter? Annie Sloan’s North America tour has just been announced. Annie will be coming to America in March, and the lucky winner will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a $350 gift certificate! This gift certificate can be used to purchase more Chalk Paint or for registration for Annie’s workshop. So, the total retail value of this giveaway is now up to $548! That grand prize winner will be announced on Annie’s Blog on January 10, 2012.
