Giveaway from Stylish Patina

Boy, do I have some exciting news for you today!  First, let me say that if this is your first time here, welcome!  I hope you’ll take some time to look around {and stick around by following me via facebook or twitter}.

Now, if you’ve ventured this way before then you know how much I love my wax brush.  Anytime that a reader emails me with a wax dilemma, I start by suggesting they use a brush for application.  In fact, one of the most common questions I get from readers is where can they purchase a wax brush like the one I used in the wax tutorials.  The problem has been that readers are spread all over the country {well, actually the world} and may not be near a stockist or their stockist may not carry the particular brush I use.  Problem solved, my friends!  Stylish Patina not only carries these amazing wax brushes in their online shop but they are also an Annie Sloan stockist and retailer of milk paint {which I’m hoping to try very soon}.  The best part?  You can shop online and have your favorites shipped right to your house.
