Painters Place presents..... "decorate with style"

Everyone knows about Benjamin Moore paint.  Does everyone know about the Painters Place;  at the corner of Dundas & Neyagawa in Oakville?  Known within the industry as "TOM'S PLACE" it is a great source of everything paint and wallpaper.  The staff are extremely knowledgeable and the most friendly & helpful people you could deal with.    Now TOM.... he is something else.  Everybody adores Tom.  He has a way of making everyone feel important and  that his sole purpose is to make their personal project and needs something pleasant and positive.  I must get back to the reason for this blog....

Tom and staff invited members from the community as well as decorators to an evening of Paint Trends with Leigh-Ann Allaire-Perrault of Benjamin Moore as the guest speaker.  She is just as much fun as she is on Cityline and such a warm and friendly individual.  She gave a great presentation with Tom interjecting throughout to give away absolutely great prizes throughout the evening.  Not only did we gain more knowledge on the trends for 2011, we were eligible for many great give aways, and we were treated to a wonderful meal with wine! Everyone who attended this event went home with a great goodie bag with gift coupons, paint, magazines and many more items.

A fair portion of the  money raised from this event will be going toward Cancer Research  and most especially the walk coming up in June in which Tom has a team, known as "Team Merino".  What a great way to help a very important issue.

Now some photos......

 A visit to Tom's Place to pick up some paint and there is Tom taking care of it for me

Well organized shelves makes it easy to see what they have to offer 

 A nice spot to sit and check out wallpaper books, paint brochures of all the different types of paint offered by Benjamin Moore
 A great selection of Wallpaper Manufactures..... Ok, now that I have my paint I think I need some wallpaper and may just re-do my master ensuite!
