What is Chalk Paint®?

Chalk Paint® is a decorative furniture paint developed by Annie Sloan over 25 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.

With a colour palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century decor and design, you can easily mix the colours together to extend the range. 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 Annie Sloan Flat Brushes for a smooth look or her Chalk Paint® Brushes for a more textured aged look. Apply Chalk Paint® Wax to protect your finish and add durability.

Annie Sloan's paint "will transform even the drabbest bunker into a haven." – World of Interiors

"Annie Sloan's paint is the perfect choice if you’re looking to transform your most treasured pieces." – Elle Decoration
