Design Cottage has moved to Tacoma

Well my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint gal
 has moved
away from Gig Harbor
she went across the bridge into Tacoma
to a much bigger place

I can't blame her she has a fantastic
new location

this is the cutest store
and with her growing business
she needed the room

just look at all this room she has now

she has fabulous displays of her chalk paint work

I still can't believe she made this
she is so excited about her new place
it is in the cutest neighborhood
with lots of traffic
she gets so many walk-ins now

and lots of back room painting is always going on
I am so happy for her
her website is up and running

and I've found a new color
anybody tried this one out yet?


  1. What a great place. I have CoCo and tried it and like it. My pictures don't do it justice. I have two more end tables to try it on.

  2. What a great shop! I love that round table with the face painted on it. I haven't tried any chalk paint yet - perhaps at Christmas holiday time when I have a few days at a stretch.

  3. What a beautiful shop and so much pretty eye candy! Kathy I love Coco and just used it on my coffee table in my family room and have more plans to use it again! Have a great week, Martina

  4. Good morning, my dear Kathy!

    How are you doing today? This is the kind of store than can break my bank account! LOL I can go nuts there! Everything is so lovely, so fun and cute! Lovely!

    Have a blessed weekend, my friend.

  6. Hey Kathy -
    Found my way over from Martina's. Love this store you've showed. I've never actually used this Annie Sloan paint. I've been tempted - but I gotta find something to paint it with first! LOL!

    Xoxoo, A
