Fabulous store and owner...visited the store a few months ago and Michelle was so helpful and I've been wanting more paint for a few more projects and haven't had the chance to make the 2 hour drive t...o Itasca so I ordered some paint online Tuesday evening and just had it delivered to my door on Thursday early afternoon! Now that's some GREAT customer service!! Can't wait to start my projects this evening!! Thanks again Michelle!! See More

I am very new to the chalk paint world. I purchased a $15 coffee table and wanted to transform it. After having issues with certain paint brands and finishes I found Michelle! I went to her store yest...erday and first of all she is incredibly kind. She took the time to explain different techniques and waxing. I had to repaint the top of this table 3 times because the finishes I used made the table look awful. Michelle- told me to try a polycrylic finish because she wasn't sure if the Annie Sloan wax would work well with the paint I used. I purchased the polycrylic but something told me to try the wax. Never having used this type of wax- I did a coat yesterday and then this morning and I am so happy with the results!!!!!! Thank you so much Michelle!!! I also purchased the graphite paint for my mid century dresser. I couldn't wait to try it so I started last night. I can't wait to see the results! See More

I stopped by the Itasca store earlier this week and met Michelle. She was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable she did a demonstration on the spot and gave me the confidence to go home and practice with Mini Project Pack! Practice table turned out awesome! I can't wait to get started on my next project! See More

Ive been meaning to write this review for a while- I love this place! I've been in here a few times and Michelle has always been so helpful. Every time I leave I'm so inspired to work on different pro...jects. She gave me some really great tips on painting my bathroom vanity and it turned out great! Thanks so much for your advice and I will be back for more paint for my next project! See More

Thanks so much! I got a clearer picture on what I was going to do once I met Michelle at Di Luca designs. She did a demo right on the spot & sold me all the right tools. I also left with confidence &... was anxious to complete my project! Love this place, I'll definitely be back! See More

I visited this cute place the other day after visiting similar shops with disappointment and the customers service went above and beyond my expectations, they helped me with the right colors for my fu...rniture and the lady that helped me was so unbelievably professional, I will be stopping by again and will send others to experience what I am talking about.

I live when people not only live what that do but can answer any questions regardless how trivial that may be. Great products and all the help I needed to finish my project.

What I truly appreciate about Di Lucca Design:
1. They are interested in your project and what will work for you - they do not oversell.
2. They give you expert advice and then leave you alone to look... at all the wonderful products.
3. The shoppe is a treasure. Not only are there paints, wax and brushes but books, gifts, and you can have a cup of coffee while browsing!

The cool thing I learned is for a small project you can buy a small pot of paint. It really goes a long way!

Michelle was willing to open when it worked with my schedule outside her normal business hours. She was super helpful, and was happy to show me various ways to achieve the look I'm going for. Worth the trip!

Michelle is awesome! Truly an expert on chalk paint and applications. Excellent customer service. Great new location, Donna and Kathy are great! Thanks for all of you help!
They are working right outside the shop in Itasca, but they have it down so you won't have to wait too long to turn into our driveway. We are open in Itasca until 5pm and Naperville until 6pm. Come see us! Affordable Antiques & More #chalkpaint #anniesloan #diluccadesign

This table has been in the Itasca store since we opened. Stripping it today so we can whitewash the raw wood with Chalk Paint®. 👀This product makes removing paint so easy! Thanks for the tip @susan_lynk 🙌🏼
