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 painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Emperors Silk was the best option. 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?
