We are proud to carry the complete line of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® paint products, soft waxes and painting tools. Annie Sloan, artist and interior design consultant from Oxford, England, developed her now famous decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, over 20 years ago to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would have many uses from acting like lime wash to looking like old painted furniture. She named it Chalk Paint® because of its beautiful velvety, matte finish. Her line of paints comes in 35 decorative and historical colors. Soft wax for finishing comes in either clear or dark for an aged or rustic finish.
Why Chalk Paint®?
Chalk Paint® is very easy to work with. It very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outside, on just about any surface – from wood to metal, leather to fabric and matt plastic to terra cotta! It revitalizes old furniture, walls, ceilings and floors with ease. It’s easy, fun and makes amazing results accessible to everyone.
With a color palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century decor and design, you can easily mix the colors together to extend the range. Because Chalk Paint® rarely requires priming or sanding, it allows one to jump right into the creative process and achieve beautiful results! Chalk Paint® is eco-friendly too. We’re especially excited to share with our customers that our paint contains extremely low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and has no odor…so working with Chalk Paint® in your home or around your family does not present the toxic odors present in other paint products, nor does it require moving your piece out to the garage to sand, prime or protect your home from noxious odors. You can renovate your pieces in the convenience of your home with ease and in relatively little time, as the paint dries quicker than conventional latex paints, making your process from start to finish a snap!
