Annie Sloan, is the UK-based artist, author and interior design expert behind this internationally recognized brand. Trained as a fine artist, she turned to decorative work after university in the mid 1970’s, while painting murals in houses as commissions. By 1987, Annie had written the phenomenally successful book, ‘The Complete Book of Decorative Paint Techniques’, which is considered to be the industry bible on the subject. Unable to find the paints she wished to work with, Annie used her knowledge of color, paint, pigments, and art history and developed Chalk Paint®. She hasn’t stopped refining and improving her formula since. 




Chalk Paint® is a decorative furniture paint specifically designed by Annie Sloan to be easy to use, quick, and reliable. Annie created it out of a desire to have paint she could apply, leave to dry, and wax - all in one day.

Chalk Paint® very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming. It can be used inside and outside, on just about any surface. Chalk Paint® is suitable for beginners and for furniture painting professionals alike; it’s the fool-proof furniture paint which can be used to create any look you require. 




Later this year we will hold our first in a series of Annie Sloan Workshops. You bring a small piece of furniture (say, an end table), we provide the supplies and teach you the technique to transform your table into something stunning. Stay tuned for more details on our workshop schedule.
