Have you ever used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®?
I have been painting with it for over a year now and I love it.
It does have a higher price tag than latex paint but it really is worth all the hype. I do not paint with it exclusively but I use it when a piece of furniture needs it. How do I decide which furniture is in need of the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®? If it will require sanding or primer then I use Chalk Paint®. The waxing takes a bit getting use too and requires a little arm work but it seals the paint so well.
Here is a dresser I have had for a while. It was in excellent condition and made really well. It was stained and sealed so the Chalk Paint® was the perfect choice. I decided to make it bold and use it in my dining room for storage. So the color I chose was Emperor’s Silk. You should know, straight out of the can, it is bright red. So bright that I covered it with dark wax first so it would tone it down. If I had waxed it clear it would have been way too red for my space.
Here is the dresser all finished.
This is just a showcase of a before and after using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. I have plans of painting some items soon and I will include more of the process of painting to show you the steps involved. Until then, I’d love to hear about your experiences with Chalk Paint®. Do you love it?
