To say that I'm sooooo excited about Annie Sloan's American Tour would be a great understatement.
As a Florida stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I love that I'll get to see and chat with Annie again.  She's an amazing woman
and just an all around great gal!

 For all of my follower's, if you have the chance to meet her you should!  She will be teaching her techniques to us ALL.  Who wouldn't want to learn from
Annie Sloan....the MASTER herself!!

So to sweeten the pot and to THANK YOU for your support I want to encourage and inspire you  to sign up for Annie Sloan's American Tour in the Atlanta area!

After you've learned from Annie in Atlanta we invite you back to Tampa, Florida for a
FREE ANNIE SLOAN WORKSHOP DAY to perfect her techniques on YOUR PIECE
What's that mean??  That means you get to bring YOUR piece of furniture
(something you can carry in)
and your creative mind
to my beautiful workshop
Robyn Story Designs will be GIVING AWAY two FREE sample pots of paint
 (your choice of colors)
PLUS you'll use our waxes
and you can let the paint fly while creating your piece here!
This day is fun and informal but as your Annie Sloan stockist we will be there
in case you need a
little encouragement
questions answered or
refresher of the techniques

(and this is a BIG one)
We will also be having a FREE mini-workshop on
gold gilding!

A little Starbucks coffee and some great cookies and nibbles...

Demonstrate how to use this versatile paint to achieve a popular furniture finish seen in decor'
magazines and books.  This paint and wax finish, developed in England can be used on any surface and requires little prep.

Our own dealers are using this product with every impressive results!

When Robyn retired from her successful advertising career she started a floral business to the trade from her home.  Soon this developed to include all sort of home decor, including fantastic chandeliers, lighting, gorgeous custom florals, home accessories and even women's accessories and bling.  They are also a full service design studio and love to be asked to accessorize homes -
"It's what we do best!"
They also have a workroom that creates stellar soft scapes such as bedding and drapery as well as a designer that works with Robyn Story Designs.  And so, they have LOTS to share with us.
