An Ode to Annie Sloan

Once upon a time, (when I was like 15), I read a greeting card that said, "You have my heart. It is for you to hold. Forever." Or something like that. Anyway, I dreamed of the day I could give that card to someone. (Romantic, I know.) Today is that day. And I give that card to... Annie Sloan. (Just so you know, it was a toss up between Annie Sloan and the color Turquoise.)

Yes, Annie Sloan. Since the day I met you a few months ago, all I can do is think about what I should paint with you. I use you until you are all used up, and then I use you some more. I can't walk into a room without picking out every. single. piece. of. furniture. that I would paint with you and I am guilty of doing this, not only in my own house, but also in the dwellings of my friends and family. Obsessed much?

You were top priority on my Christmas list. I drive 45 minutes just to look at you (that's the closest store that stocks AS paint). I turn to you multiple times a weekend just for the fun of it. And it doesn't stop here.

My husband wants you to take out a restraining order against me. He said he would file the papers... he might even chip in.

It's a sickness and the cure for the Annie Sloan obsession is... MORE Annie Sloan!

(I have some fun projects (using Annie Sloan paint) on the way to show you.)


  1. Dear Courtney ~ I think I may soon have your affliction...just got wind of Annie Sloan through Pinterest, and I think I soon will be under her spell, too. :) I LOVE painted furniture ~ with a distressed painted finish, you never have to worry about imperfections, right? Because it's already perfectly imperfect! About a year ago we moved to a new house with DARK custom cabinets...you already know what I want to do, don't you? (My husband considers even thinking about painting them sacrilege! (Did I spell that right?)) ~ Anyway, after all this rambling, it's nice to meet you! I'm a new follower!
    Anne ♥

  2. Oh, definitely putting you on my sidebar, so I can visit easily! I can tell I'm going to need lots of Annie Sloan pics "fixes"! (I bet I'll have to order it...don't think anyone around here carries it...:(...)
