Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Canada

It's finally available in Canada, and more to the point, in Southern Ontario- that amazing paint that everyone in blogland has been talking about- Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  And the funniest thing is, the store that carries it is located in Bath near Kingston, Ontario, just minutes from where my husband's family live - in fact,  the store is on the same road that his brother and sister-in-law live on, and where his family home was, and still is located .  Is this not a small world ????  I've been trying to decide if I wanted to spend the money to order it and have it shipped from New Jersey, which was the closest location to me I could find, but now that problem is solved.  If you wait long enough, good things usually happpen.

 I know, I know, stop talking already and tell us where it is.  The store is called The Melon Patch, and here's the link to the web-site and Blog here.

Now, unfortunately, I live 2 hours away in Toronto, but, it's still better then having to order it from the States and having it shipped across the border.  I can just have one of my family members pick up the paint for me and get it when I go to visit- I'm so excited to try it out.  I've already pre-ordered some paint and wax- they sold out of the Old White in just one week, and the owner of the store-Elizabeth is going to email me when it arrives.

Here are some pictures that I borrowed from the Melon Patch Blog, of finished items using the paint.

I can't wait to show some pictures of my own items once I get the paint.  I hope all you bloggers in Canada will check out the Melon Patch site and blog- they will ship anywhere in the world.  And I hope this little bit of information will be of help to a lot of people.

Until next time.  Au Revoir!!!!!
