Paint furniture with chalk paint


Way back in 1990, Annie Sloan was painting furniture for her home. Looking for the right paint was another story and she ended up developing her own range of paint. Chalk Paint has a velvety, matt finish that is perfect for painting a wide range of furniture.  And if you finish off with soft wax – also in the Annie Sloan product range, you can achieve subtle sheen as well as protection and durability.





Chalk Paint is a unique decorative paint developed by Annie Sloan in 30 decorative and historical colours – made specifically for painting furniture, painting floors, and for giving walls a completely matt, velvety finish. Chalk Paint sticks to just about any surface… wood, concrete, metal, matt plastic, earthenware and much more, inside and outside the home. It dries fast too so you can add second or third coats quickly, and start enjoying your revitalised walls, floors and furniture sooner. Gorgeous results have never been so simple and straightforward.





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 odour.

Add a little water to it to make it smooth, thicken it up by leaving the lid off, 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.
