The Chalk Paint™ story
When Annie Sloan developed her unique furniture paint, Chalk Paint™, in 1990, she revolutionised the world of decorative painting.
What is Chalk Paint™?
Chalk Paint™ is a decorative furniture paint specifically designed by Annie Sloan to be easy to use, quick, and reliable.
Chalk Paint™ very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outside, on just about any surface. Chalk Paint™ can be used to paint wood, it can be used to paint metal, it can be used to paint melamine, it can be used to paint flooring, it can be used to dye fabric, and it can even be used to paint glass!
Chalk Paint™ is suitable for beginners and for furniture painting professionals alike; it’s the fool-proof furniture paint which can be used to create any look you require. From colour-blocked, modern interiors, to pine bedside tables in need of a revamp, or authentic aged rustic effects fit for much-loved heirlooms, Chalk Paint™ can solve all your furniture dilemmas.
How To Use Chalk Paint™
Chalk Paint can be applied directly to almost any surface without the need for sanding or priming. Just roll up your sleeves and get painting!
Chalk Paint™ requires sealing and protecting with Annie Sloan Wax or Lacquer. Chalk Paint™ Wax emphasises depth of colour and gives a beautiful mellow finish, or can be buffed to a high sheen. Chalk Paint™ Lacquer is a hard-wearing, water-based polyacrylic varnish with built-in UV protection, perfect for high-traffic areas and outdoor furniture.
Stand back and enjoy your newly painted piece of furniture or upcycled creation.
Chalk Paint™ colours can easily be mixed to create your own bespoke shades. Contact your local Annie Sloan Stockist, refer to Annie’s books or watch Annie’s tutorial for more information on colour mixing.
