How to use

Chalk Paint® was invented by Annie Sloan in 1990. It’s a furniture paint specifically designed to be easy to use, quick, and reliable. Chalk Paint® can be used to give any finish you desire; but is best-known and best-loved for its beautiful, velvety matt finish when simply applied and waxed. It’s this flexibility which makes Chalk Paint® and painted furniture accessible to all from new home owners improving inherited furniture, to tradesmen from the Traditional Painters, to career furniture painters.

Annie has simplified the process of transforming your home because she believes everybody should be empowered to create, customise and improve their living space. Whether you’re painting a bedside table in Old White to give it a new breath of life, updating a tired old kitchen on a budget, or stencilling your floor, Annie has provided products you can trust and expert guidance to build your confidence in your endeavours! Pop open a tin of Chalk Paint® in your favourite shade to see for yourself.

There are countless online tutorials, a highly-trained network of passionate Chalk Paint® Stockists, and a fool-proof paint formula to support you and guarantee that your upcycling project is a success!

The big furniture warehouses will have you believe that spending large sums on new furniture is the quickest and easiest way to update your interiors – but upcycling your existing pieces is cheap, fun, and very straightforward.

Chalk Paint® can be applied to almost any surface with ease of no sanding or priming.
