Wanna Know THE BEST PLACE to Buy Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Canada?

***Sadly we have to edit this post. Tara passed away suddenly in July 2012 due to a tragic accident. She was truly a sweetheart and will be missed by many. Tara’s sister Avery is taking over Tara’s business and you can still visit http://www.lldecor.ca/ for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Canada.***

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – you know, that amazeballs paint you’ve heard about that will paint just about any surface – including old waxed pine, melamine and varnished wood? The paint that gives the gorgeous patina to aged wood. So far we’ve used it on our ledge/mantle, our banquette and our blanket box turned filing cabinet. It is uber popular for its versatility and its ease of use.  It is ECO FRIENDLY, has extremely low VOC’s and it’s WATER BASED!!! And you can find it almost everywhere in Europe and the U.S.  In Canada it’s a little trickier to find. There are only a few stockists up here, BUT…

Today I want to share my favourite stockist with you…

Do you remember our interview with Tara of Lauren Lane Decor a little while back?

I love this girl!!! She is the talented, brave and creative dynamo behind a brand new studio in Calgary, Alberta. AND she sells ASCP in many colours (plus any needed accessories), offers classes for do-it-yourselfers and sells finished pieces too!

And she can ship out Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to anyone who contacts her!!!!

(Yes, even those outside Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.)

You can reach Tara, by visiting her paint site: Lauren Lane Decor, Chalk Paint, Calgary or by calling her at 403.265.7751.

What are you waiting for? Go get yourself some Annie Sloan and get painting!!!

We were not paid or even perked for this post. We love ASCP and we also adore Tara and just wanted to connect you guys with her!!!

Want a little faith-filled creative goodness sent your way?

    Thanks for this information! I have a “maple” dining set and a faux wood buffet to paint and if I ever get up the guts to actually start them I will have to look at getting some of this paint. I have seen other articles about this chalk paint and I thought it was “chalkboard” paint lol!

      the melonpatch in bath ontario, I’ve called numerous places in GTA and muskoka and they have no clue what the difference is between ASCP and chalkboard paint

      ***EDITED BY SHANNON/AKA DESIGN: Unfortunately we cannot recommend The Melon Patch. We experienced extremely poor customer service, as did several other people we have heard from. :( ***

    Buying this AS paint from the Melon Patch is not a good idea. I put in an order in August, wait until
    the paint arrived at her store in September. She sent it to me, had the wrong postal code so it was sent
    back to her. She promised to resend it, never did. However, I continued to call her and she continued to
    tell me it was “in the mail”. Well..needless to say, I just cancelled my order and its now October21. Just found out that she didn’t send it at all. So…moral of the story….if you don’t mind waiting and waiting..perhaps 8 weeks to
    find out that your order has gone awry (she didnt’ even call me) then good luck. I’ve send my business elsewhere and she’s lost out on numerous orders. Bad business practices. She should not be a stockist for ANnie Sloan.

      Unfortunately I didn’t have a good experience with The Melon Patch either, which is why I didn’t recommend them (another commentor did). I’m sorry you had such a tough time!

What do you think?
