A week with Annie Sloan in Oxford October 03, 2017 17:56

As an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint stockist I have been trained to teach workshops by Annie Sloan. Upcycling furniture is a fabulous part to our business that I enjoy immensely, we upcycle vintage furniture for sale in the shop and online, we've sold pieces to new homes all over the UK, and even sent one sideboard as far as Germany. 

Recently I was fortunate enough to be selected as 1 of 18 stockists to spend a week with Annie at Chalk Paint HQ in Oxford. There are over 1700 stockists worldwide as as the only Brit along I felt honoured.

We spent a week experimenting with paint, block printing fabric, up cycling vintage chairs, studying colour theory in interior design, making clocks, eating fabulous food and learning about instagram and it's impact in interiors design.

I made some fabulous friends along the way with people travelling from Greece, Holland, France, the USA, and New Zealand to be there (I felt almost lazy driving an hour along the A34)

Annie is a fabulous lady, talented, savvy, inspirational and hugely supportive. She truly is my mentor.

My resolution this year was to really push myself as an artisan painter, my week with Annie has helped me to  push my paint work to another level.

Reviews of our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Workshops at La Di Da November 06, 2016 14:59

We love running our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint workshops at La Di Da Interiors, Luxuries & Gifts. They're all really fun courses and it's fabulous to see our students learn, gain confidence and go on to produce fabulous results! 

Feedback is really important to us, below are a few comments from some of our students....

Been wanting to do this course for over a year and have lots of projects in our new house. So glad I did this course it's really shown me how to maximise the use of Annie Sloan paint... Thank you so much...
Krysia Eddery 

Love the courses at La Di Da, they provide a great environment to learn the techniques in. Steph is friendly and professional in her approach. I have learnt loads and really enjoyed being able to find my creative spirit again.
Louise Wells

I knew nothing about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint before the course. The course was great and gave all the basics to get started! Now I just need to convince hubby to let me paint our furniture!
Elise Taylor


I had looked at the adverts for this course a number of times before finally deciding to give it a go, and boy am I glad I did. It is ideal for anyone new to upcycling as it not only teaches you the techniques you need to know, but also the short cuts, Steph is more than happy to share her wealth of knowledge during the morning. On the course I attended we seemed to spend most of our time having "light bulb moments" as our eyes were opened to just what could be achieved with Annie Sloan products.
I would thoroughly recommend this course
Sue Canavan


Stephanie was a superb teacher and I loved my intro to Annie Sloan painting techniques. Following on from the course I have gone on to do several projects.
I'd recommend anyone to this course for those who like me love restoring furniture but needed to know some techniques or if you just fancy trying something new!
Sadly as I am moving I wont be able to come back to any courses with Stephanie but she was a great teacher and her business at La Di Da is certainly a success!

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ at La Di Da 2016 December 21, 2015 12:09

We are privileged to be the selected stockist of Annie Sloan for the area. In 2015 I was trained by Annie herself to extend and develop my techniques using her products, a fabulous experience! The products are second to none, beautiful colours, easy to use, the most versatile on the market and of a quality that speaks for itself.

I love running our workshops to help our clients to build their confidence in using the products and to work on their own projects. It makes running La Di Da so much fun, seeing the results of clients painting and helping them to plan the next one! Being an Annie Sloan stockist is more than a commercial function, we have a massive creative team behind us at Annie Sloan HQ and the drive and genuine enthusiasm to develop our offering to you is insuppressible.

2016 is the year for development at La Di Da, we are looking forward to training further with Annie and extending our range of workshops, developing our range of revived and up cycled furniture and bringing the endless possibilities of Chalk Paint to even more people. Bring it on! #AnnieSloan #ChalkPaint #MoreThanPaint #2016

New Look La Di Da December 18, 2014 15:55

Welcome to our new look website! 

Along with building the website, over the summer we have found some fabulous new suppliers, from up cycled cashmere from Turtle Doves to sparkly gorgeous cards hand finished by Willow James, we aim to stock the majority of our products from independent UK artists, craftspeople and British small businesses! 

The aim of our new website is to enable you to quickly find exactly what you are looking for, whether its accessories for the home, garden furniture or a gift for someone special. 

Customers locally and nationwide can now purchase our lovely products online. Some of the heavier or delicate items are only ever available in our shop but the majority (including the ever popular, large and heavy garden mirrors!) are available to ship via a courier. 

Thank you for your loyalty - we look forward to seeing you soon!
