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!
Annie Sloan invented her revolutionary furniture paint, Chalk Paint™, in 1990 and hasn’t stopped refining and improving her formula since. She is widely considered one of the world’s leading authorities in paint, colour and style.
Nobody is better qualified to invent and manufacture paint than Annie Sloan. Annie’s first book, The Complete Book of Decorative Paint Techniques, was published in 1988. Since then she has published 26 books on paint effects, colour and Interior Design.
The invention ofChalk Paint™resulted from Annie’s need for a paint that could be used to achieve endless decorative effects – and quickly. Chalk Paint™ satisfies that brief perfectly, as it can be applied to wood, glass, metal, brick and even laminate, left to dry, and then waxed within one day. This helped to accommodate for Annie’s busy lifestyle as a working mother to three boys.
