Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan

When Annie Sloan developed her unique decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, she revolutionized the world of decorative painting. Frustrated with the lack of paint options available at the time, she created her own signature paint ~ with its remarkable versatility and ease of use ~ for everyone from the novice to the professional to enjoy.

Annie developed her now famous Chalk Paint® in 1990 to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would have many uses. She came to choose the name “Chalk Paint” because it was suggestive of its very matte ~ almost chalky ~ finish.

Chalk Paint® adheres to most surfaces and creates gorgeous results quickly and easily. Use it for a textured finish, a distressed finish, a smooth contemporary finish, or even a wash. 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 matte plastic to terracotta. It can revitalize old furniture, walls, ceilings, and floors with ease. It’s easy, fun, and makes amazing results accessible to everyone. 

Chalk Paint® is non-toxic, water-based, contains no lead, has very low volatile organic compounds (“VOCs”), and has no odor ~ we aim to make all our products as eco-friendly as possible.
