The Annie Sloan Warehouse is open and operating a reduced workforce during the Covid-19 outbreak. Please note due to a high demand of orders and couriers experiencing delayed services, please expect a delay in the delivery of your online order of 10 - 14 working days. That’s 7 - 10 working days for us to dispatch your order and 2 - 3 working days for our couriers to deliver it. Unfortunately it is not currently possible to amend or add to orders once they have been placed. Our customer service team has closed our phone lines to manage the workload, and we are also experiencing very high levels of emails. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We hope to get you your paint as soon and safely as possible!

Textured Papered Drawers by Chloe Kempster

Textured Papered Drawers by Chloe Kempster

This textured-effect set of drawers has been transformed by Annie’s Painter in Residence to have a carved wood effect using just some textured paper, Chalk Paint®, and coloured Chalk Paint® Waxes.

First Chloe adhered paper to the drawer fronts using PVA glue. Once completely dry she applied a base layer of Chalk Paint® in Aubusson Blue and allowed to dry. Next she blended Antibes Green, Florence, and Aubusson Blue to give that undeniable emerald colour. Once she was happy with the colour Chloe used a Wax Brush to apply a thin coat of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax all over. This protects and prepares the surface for application of Dark and Black Wax, which she applied with a rag to enhance the texture of the paper by emphasizing the crevices of the pattern. Using Antibes Green as a highlighter she dry-brushed the raised surface to finish and create further contrast, thereby emphasizing the detail and adding to the carved wood effect. Finally, she used Clear Chalk Paint® Wax to seal everything in.
