Chalk Paint is a versatile paint that can be used…
Chalk Paint sounds like a far-off dream for professional and at-home furniture refinishing projects. It requires no stripping of old paints and finishes and no priming. All Chalk Paint requires is a desire to improve a piece of furniture.
Add color, texture, dimension, and new life by freshening, rejuvenating, and adding a new layer of life to old, boring pieces. The Annie Sloan fabric collection gives another angle and dimension to pieces that dually require re-upholstering.
Of course, wherever Annie Sloan products are a player, creativity is set free to bring new outside-the-box styles and combinations to life.
Now Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Des Moines Iowa is actually a brand out of Britain. Though, the foresight and appreciation of one Des Moines’ local, Janet Roewe Piller, brought the stylings to the region. Janet was simply curious about making a piece of her own furniture take on the shabby chic look through the magic of paint.
She did what many people do — found her answer online, in a blog. The blog praised a product by Annie Sloan, the inventor of Chalk Paint®, who is in Oxford, England.
Janet actually reached out to Annie Sloan, and she loved the product idea and reviews so much she became a stockist for the Chalk Paint® brand.
Janet opened her own store in 2012 but wasted no time hopping on creating her own store, TLC Vintage Collection LLC. It began quickly as an online marketplace serving neighboring states. She rented booth space at the Brass Armadillo antiques mall right in Des Moines.
Within a short seven months of starting to sell the Annie Sloan line, Janet opened her store at 7518 Hickman Road at Sherwood Forest Shopping Center.
She is joined in the store by her husband, Dan Piller, and Mary Lou Killebrew. Each is encyclopedic in their knowledge on the paint and finishing options. Another drawing point of the store is the backdrop of ideas that are present all around the sales area.
Take in new ways to restyle furniture, cabinets, concrete, and woodwork.
Please feel free to call the staff or Janet at (515)276-1577, visit the website, or stop by to shop and inquire about finishing ideas.
Janet Roewe Piller is the owner. Her email is [email protected]. The blog features some great tips and updates on new product selections in the store at TLC Vintage Collection dot-blogspot.com, all one word.
