When Annie Sloan developed her signature range of Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint in 1990, she revolutionized the way we see decorative painting. She called her paint Chalk Paint® because of its velvety, matte finish. And if you add Annie Sloan Soft Wax, 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 straight forward
