Here at Poppy Greens Home we use the brilliant Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan in order to create the beautiful finish on our furniture, and we are well-please to be a stockist of her full range of products including her Brushes, Books, Gold Size, Craqueleur, and Decoupage Varnish. We always have The full selection of Chalk Paint™ in stock so you can be sure to get all the wonderful colours you want – when you want. Receive a free hand painted Annie Sloan Colour Card with your first online order (delivery £6.50) and don’t forget to add some Annie Sloan Clear Wax to get that beautiful finish on your furniture.  We love using Annie Sloan paint, why? Well, apart from the fact that you don’t have to sand surfaces down or prime before using,  it’s because there’s always something new to try out, this paint is really so versatile, that the only thing holding you back, as Annie Sloan says will be your own imagination. You will find , the more you use it , the better you get. It’s truly addictive and great fun!  And the effects you can achieve with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ Decoupage and Craqueleur are just wicked.

We also run Eight Courses which include two official Annie Sloan workshops where you can learn how to paint, distress and wax your own projects.  In the advanced course you can learn how to Stencil, Decoupage, Craqueleur, Crackle Glaze, Gild and much more.  Having previously completed a year’s course on paint effects, coupled with a diploma in interior design under her belt, Lesley from Poppy Greens Home is well equipped to help and advise you when it comes to all things paint and interiors.  Lesley has also been trained by Annie Sloan to continue with the excellent teaching on the use of Annie’s unique chalk paints and waxes.  Our own Six Course include Open Studio – Drop in Workshop, An Introduction to Interior Design Create a Mood Board, Take a Seat, Light & Shade, Cupcakes & Easy Sugarcraft Decorations and Cottage Garden Flower Arranging.  With a lifelong interest in antiques and interiors and in the home and garden, Lesley trained further in cupcake decorating and flower arranging.  We teach classes of up to 10 in our dedicated workshop space at our studio in Meare (15 mintues from our shop in Wells, Somerset).  Our courses are packed full of inspirational ideas and techniques, are fully “hands on”, and all are suitable for complete beginners.  Check our courses page for details and dates or call us on Studio 01458 860500 or Shop 01749 678912 for more information.
