Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Classes

By now, I'm sure everyone has heard about the "amazing" Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! I've never seen anything, for a very long time, sell as fast as the Chalk Paint does. Basically, it paints over anything! And now Country Roads is proud to announce that we will once again have classes to show you just how to use our favorite paint!

Marina, one of our Country Roads dealers and friends, will be teaching these classes. She is also a very talented artist! Look what she did with the old door above! Yep, all with Chalk Paint!

Did you know that you can paint on fabric as well? Marina painted this old vintage chaise lounge and added a few embellishments to it, like the lace on the bottom.

A lot of our CR family uses Chalk Paint. Cyndy is a fan of the Duck Egg Blue! These head and foot boards look great!

So, our first class will be taught my Marina on Sunday, August 11th, 2013. The class starts at 11am and will wrap up around 4pm. The paint and brush will be included in the price. All you need to do is bring a small piece of furniture, or a chair, etc and you will anything and everything about Chalk Paint. The class is $95 and must be pre-paid. You can call Country Roads at:
714.532.3041 to sign up and pay for the class over the phone with a credit card. We look forward to seeing you. . .


H&H Nursery

Lately on my days off from Country Roads, I'm "trying" to make a little more time for myself. For some reason today, I thought of a nursery that I use to love and hadn't been to for quite some time. So, today I went up to H&H Nursery. It's in Lakewood, on Lakewood Blvd between South & Artesia, I think. Here is just a few pictures of some of the stuff that caught my eye. . .

It's kind of peaceful to get lost in the middle of all these plants.  They had a HUGE selection of succulents along with killer displays! I loved it . . .


Vignettes at CR

It's another beautiful Summer day here in southern CA! So far, the weather has been pretty nice and we've all been able to enjoy everything that Summer brings. Today I've posted a few pictures of Linda Curry's makeover she did yesterday at Country Roads.

I say this all the time, but I "do" know and realize how lucky I am to have the job that I have. I'm able to work with great people and wonderful customers while enjoying eye candy in every nook and cranny of our 10,000 square foot store! If you are looking for something to do, we are always open every day of the week from 10am to 5pm! I hope you all have a chance to stop by soon.


Vintage Inspiration

Country Roads is stuffed to the brim with creativity and inspiration! I have such a talented group of people here at CR and that is one thing that I am always very appreciative of. One of our dealers, and my friend, Debbie Watts, always without a doubt, amazes all of us with her creativity. Here are a few of my favorite vignettes courtesy of Debbie. . .

My hopes are that you are all enjoying you Summer. It is one of my favorite times of the year. And as always, if you are looking for something to do, be sure to stop by Country Roads and pay us a visit! We are open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm. Take care.
