Annie Sloan Book Giveaway!

It's Giveaway Time!

Leave me a comment on my facebook, or directly on my blog. Say, "hi," or "thanks," or anything you like, and I will put your name in (1 per person) for a random drawing, for the book, Creating the French Look, by Annie Sloan.

Annie Sloan's chalk paints come in fab colors, and she will show you examples of transformed pieces of furniture. I love this book. It covers many French styles, and really clears up any confusion you might have between them. This giveaway will end on May 4th.

My son recently brought home a 'bag of rags" to be used on the farm, from an auction. The bag was $1.00. In the bag were several of the linen towels just like the one that was used to upholster the chair on Annie's book cover. The towels are now MINE:)

Good Luck!
