I came across Annie Sloan chalk paint whilst googling “easy paint for furniture.” I had a shop full of old furniture to paint before I opened and the pressure was on to get it done and get it done quickly. Having spent so much money on stocking the shop I was left to make the most of existing shop fittings which I had kept from the shop that was there before. Annie sloan chalk paint came to the rescue and I immediately fell madly in love with it and what it can do. I’ve been on many training workshops in Oxford, with the good lady herself and have learnt so much about the paint and using different paint techniques to create different finishes. It is so versatile and has been covering up old, unloved furniture, kitchens and outdoor items for over 25 years now. It’s tried and tested and Annie Sloan is continually looking at ideas to help inspire you to create your perfect home.
