Grace is a feast for the eyes this time of year, with plenty of well-priced presents for women of all ages. I was especially taken with their new product line: the full collection of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint. With names that conjure up French antiques (Antoinette, Arles and Aubusson Blue), here’s an easy way to gussy up old furniture and give it that “old paint” or limewashed look. And it’s great for producing a wonderful matte-velvety finish on walls or floors. Learn some tricks and techniques with in-store demos every Saturday through December and before you know it you’ll be slapping this stuff all over your house. Click for Grace’s blog.
