Sometime last year one of the New Leaf team members suggested that I find out what it would take for us to carry Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I didn’t think much of it because I was focused on furniture and home decor. I was also committed to our mission to promote consignment and gently used goods. Over the course of the next few weeks, several customers began to ask us about Annie Sloan products and I began to get curious. I contacted Unfolded, Annie’s US distributor and asked a few questions and filled out our first application. As we progressed and I sent pictures of our store, Unfolded thought we’d be a good match for what they are trying to accomplish. I was still skeptical.
After a few more steps in the process, we were accepted as an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Stockist. I still didn’t understand the scope of what we were getting ourselves into, but I was game for anything that had some business potential.
A few months later we scheduled our “Train the Trainer” weekend and myself and a couple other employees travelled to New Orleans to be trained as Annie Sloan Stockists. From the first session of learning about Chalk Paint® I was hooked! It is an amazing product and it has been an honor for us to carry Annie’s Chalk Paint®. I even take some time out of my busy schedule on occasion to paint a side table or lamp. Unheard of!
The two characteristics that I believe makes Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® paint so wonderful it the fact that it requires very little surface prep and it is super easy to clean up as a water based product. These two characteristics speeds up the furniture painting process tremendously.
