Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® 101


Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan is a decorative paint developed by Annie Sloan 26 years ago. It very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outside, on just about any surface. 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 fun bit!” – Annie Sloan

With a colour palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century decor and design, you can easily mix the colours together to extend the range. 

What you will learn:


  •  Two color distressing 

  • Vintage finishing using Dark Wax

  • Smooth finish

  • Color Wash
