Introducing Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for Furniture August 31, 2011
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is a line of furniture paint from England, that is now sweeping the United States. I doubt that the surgeon general or the head of the CIA knows about Annie Sloan Chalk Paints, (ASCP), but crafters, DIY’ers, and design bloggers are “in the know”.
What’s so special about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, you ask? Well, probably the ease of application is what makes it so unique. It sticks to just about any surface without sanding or preparation, besides having a clean surface. It dries quickly and often one coat will do the trick, followed by the wax and a quick buff. Without the wax, you’ll end up with a chalky finish, hence the name.
I was an ASCP wanna-be for months, before finally placing my first order. Days passed and finally my Graphite paint and soft wax arrived just yesterday. Life was now complete!
While my first piece of furniture to paint will be a nightstand, I thought I’d take my “maiden voyage” on an unused picture frame.
