When Annie Sloan developed her unique decorative paint, Chalk Paint™, over 20 years ago, she revolutionised the world of decorative painting. Frustrated with the lack of paint options available at the time, she created her signature paint ⎯ with its remarkable versatility and ease of use ⎯ for everyone from the novice to the professional to enjoy.

Annie Sloan developed her now famous decorative paint, Chalk Paint™, in 1990 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, matt finish.

One of the great aspects about my paint is the number of different ways it can be used – it is not a one dimensional paint but can be used thickly,
thinly, crackled, stippled, overlaid and rubbed through, smoothly, and like gesso.

⎯ Annie Sloan

Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan 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.

There’s no need for tiresome priming and sanding ⎯ you can get straight to the funbit!

⎯ Annie Sloan

With a colour palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century décor and design, you can easily mix the colours together to extend the range. Add a little water to it to make it smooth, thicken it up by leaving the lid off, and make it into a wash by adding even more water. Use flat brushes for a smooth look or bristle brushes for a more textured aged look. Gorgeous results have never been so simple and straightforward.

Chalk Paint™ is eco-friendly too. It contains extremely low volatile organic compounds (‘VOCs’) and has no odour.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Olive
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Olive
This traditional green is found in fine classically painted and lacquered furniture, as well as rustic country pieces. Now a global phenomenon, Annie Sloan first developed the Chalk Paint® range in 1990 to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would work beautifully on furniture without priming or sanding; that would be easy to use and quick to dry; and that could be used for a number of different paint techniques. She called it Chalk Paint® because of its velvety, ultra matt finish. Use Chalk Paint® Wax to seal and protect furniture and walls painted with Chalk Paint® decorative paint. Chalk Paint® Wax emphasises depth of colour and gives a beautiful mellow finish, or can be buffed to a high sheen. It is water-repellent too, so can be used on dining room tables and kitchen cabinets. To achieve Annie's signature look, apply a thin coat of wax over your painted surface with an Annie Sloan Wax Brush. Work in small areas at a time, wiping off any excess with a clean cloth. For a distressed look, sand back to reveal a little of the wood or paint underneath before applying a second coat of wax. Contact us or visit us in store to buy Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan
