Annie Sloan developed her now famous decorative paint, Chalk Paint™, over 25 years ago to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would have many uses from acting like limewash to looking like old painted furniture. She called it Chalk Paint™ because of its beautiful velvety, matte finish. 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, and matt plastic to terracotta. It can revitalise old furniture, walls, ceilings and floors with ease. It's easy, fun and makes amazing results accessible to everyone. With a colour palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century decor and design, you can easily mix the colours together to extend the range. Chalk Paint™ is eco-friendly too. It contains extremely low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and has no odor. We stock a full range of Chalk Paint™ and Annie Sloan Accessories including specialist brushes, waxes, and books. Gorgeous results have never been so simple and straightforward.
