Annie Sloan is a painter located out of Oxford, England, who has over 40 years of experience in the industry. In addition to authoring over 20 books, including The Complete Book of Decorative Paint Techniques, Sloan developed a decorative paint called Chalk Paint. Chalk Paint is specifically designed to be used on furniture, but can also be used on floors, walls, and even paintings.

What Is Annie Sloan Painted Furniture?

Annie Sloan developed Chalk Paint in 1990. According to AnnieSloan.com, Chalk Paint gives furniture a “velvety, matt finish.” Although the paint was specifically designed for furniture, Chalk Paint can be used on floors, walls, and paintings.

Chalk Paint can be used on a wide range of surfaces, including plastic, metal, wood, concrete, and pottery such as earthenware. Chalk Paint is available in 30 different colors, and can be purchased in one-liter pots and 100ml tester pots so you can try out different colors.

Chalk Paint colors include pure, original, coco, French linen, old white, country grey, Paris grey, paloma, Antoinette, old ochre, and cream, to name a few. A full list of available color choices can be found on the Annie Sloan website. Colors are designed with European 18th-century furniture and 20th-century paintwork in mind.

How to Paint with Chalk Paint

Chalk Paints are generally bright and rich colors all by themselves. They can be made darker with wax or lighter by adding a white paint from the Chalk Paint collection.

If you’re painting a floor, use a paint roller on wood or concrete. If you’ve chosen a lighter color from the collection, you may need an additional coat. You can use Chalk Paint on garden furniture in addition to wood furniture. No priming or preparation is required, but leave it to dry overnight if the furniture will be exposed to rain. Each liter of paint will cover around a 140-square-foot surface area, depending on how many coats you need.

Where to Purchase Chalk Paint

Chalk Paint can be purchased directly from the Annie Sloan website, or from a variety of local stores depending on your state. A list of retailers that carry the collection in the United States can be seen here.

Chalk Paint can also be purchased in Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Annie Sloan also has a shop in Oxford, England.

If purchasing Chalk Paint from the Annie Sloan website, one-liter cans cost £18.95, and 100ml samples are £5.95 each. Unfortunately, Annie Sloan will only ship to addresses within the United Kingdom.

Annie Sloan Accessories

In addition to Chalk Paint, Annie Sloan carries bristle paint brushes, flat brushes, wax brushes, furniture painting kits, clear wax, dark wax, loose leaf brass, transfer leaf brass, copper, and aluminum. The store also carries varnish and gold glue. Keep in mind the accessories and products available to you may differ depending on what your local store has in stock.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is a great way to give your furniture a velvet and matt finish. You can use wax to darken and protect the surface of your furniture, or use the paint on your floors and walls. In any case, Annie Sloan painted furniture will help your piece stand out from the rest.
