We are constantly asked by new customers why is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint so different than other paints? Well, there are many reasons! One benefit is that you do not need to sand or prime your piece of furniture prior to painting, a BIG plus! There is also Annie's amazing color palette with 29 rich, beautiful, historical European colors.
But the real charm of Chalk Paint comes from how easy it is to create different paint effects with just paint and wax. What a simple system! A can of Chalk Paint and a tin of wax allows you so much flexibility in creating whatever look you want. On this end table below, we loved the curves and the legs and wanted to give it an authentic French look.
Check out the end result.
We wanted to keep a neutral color palette, so we used Country Grey and Old White along with the Clear and Dark waxes.
It was so easy to manipulate the paint to get a time worn patina.
I just love the detailing on the drawer and the layering of the paint to create depth.
And the cracks that break through to expose the layer below.
Remember where we started off?
And the finished look.
This is just one of the many wonderful and unique qualities about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
You definitely can't get this look with latex!
