Relocation of Local Chalk Paint Store!

I have been using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (ASCP) for over two years and loving it! It is my go-to product for refinishing woodwork on my refurbished upholstery pieces. ALSO, it is the part of the labor process that I do myself - the actual upholstery work is done by my go-to shop Sun's Upholstery of Norcross. I love the ease of application and the soft finish.

My local shop, Chalk It Up link to website has moved their Norcross, GA, store (just down the street and around the corner in Historic Norcross) and Lynn, the owner, has opened up a second location in Buford, GA. Yesterday was my first visit to the store to return one of the special brushes my husband had bought me for my March birthday. I had been lusting for the pricey round brushes that are directly sold under the ASCP label - they are reputed to be the best, fastest, easiest to use! He bought me two sizes and I've been using the smaller one ever since. I am finding, however, that I don't really need the larger one and was returning it and buying a can of the clear wax. Lynn was traveling in Europe (I LOVE to travel and just returned from the UK myself) so I wasn't able to swap my latest chalk paint stories and compliment her on the nice new shop. I thought, however, I would share photos in this blog and send her a link! Nice job, Lynn!!!

Storefront of new shop - 127 South Peachtree Street in Historic  Norcross. The placard by the door indicates that this is the 1925 site of the Ford Automotive Agency.
