This news release/flyer is going out today and this week across Iowa!
August 29, 2011 – Des Moines, IA – Urbandale-based TLC Vintage Collection LLC is proud to announce it is the Iowa stockist (distributor) and retailer of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and other decorating products. This line of paint, first introduced in 2010 in other parts of the United States, is considered the preferred paint by consumers and refinishers who enjoy the Shabby Chic, French provincial and rustic Tuscan style of furniture and other faux finish paint treatments.
Annie Sloan, a designer and artist in Oxford, England, developed chalk paint over the past two decades to give consumers and interior designers a versatile product. Chalk paint has become a buzz word on blog spots across the U.S., written by people involved in repurposing, restoration and up cycling of antiques and vintage materials.
Ease of use is a catch-phrase with this paint line. It is not necessary to strip or sand before application. Chalk paint can be used on a wide variety of substances including, but not limited to, wood, plastic, lacquered surfaces, floors, walls, cupboards, metal, furniture and even outdoor furniture. Clean up is effortless and quick with warm running water. Fast drying, one or more coats, depending on the desired effect can be done in a short period of time. Annie Sloan recommends one to two coats of soft wax after complete drying. There is little odor – think of the smell of chalk. The paint and wax are of low impact on the environment.For additional information or to purchase Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, please visit our website at: www.tlcvintagecollection.com or contact Janet Piller at the email and phone numbers above. We are in the process of recruiting stores or decorators in the state of Iowa who would like to be mini-stockists and retail Annie Sloan Chalk Paint at their locations.
