How do I paint furniture with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint?

Painting furniture with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is a popular technique known for its versatility and the fact that it requires no preparation such as sanding or applying a primer. Below are the steps to paint furniture with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint:

  1. Preparation: Make sure the furniture is clean and dust-free.

  2. Shake and stir: Shake the jar with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint well to mix the pigments or turn the tightly closed jar upside down fifteen minutes before you start painting so that the pigments can settle. Then stir the paint thoroughly with a stirring stick to prevent any pigments from settling.

  3. First coat of paint: Apply a first coat of Chalk Paint with a brush or roller. It is often best to apply the paint in thin layers for even coverage. Let the first coat dry completely before moving on to the next step.

    TIP: Use our fine mist spray to dampen your furniture while you apply the first coat of paint. This way you can not only paint more smoothly and easily, the brush and brush marks will be less visible and you will also need less paint!

  4. Second coat of paint: When the first coat is completely dry, apply a second coat of Chalk Paint. Let this layer dry completely again.

    TIP: You can also use the atomizer for the second layer to work more smoothly.

  5. Sanding (optional): If you want to create a vintage or distressed look, you can lightly sand the furniture with sandpaper after the paint has completely dried. This will bring out subtle scuffs and wood grain.

  6. Finishing: Once the paint has dried completely, you can seal the furniture with Annie Sloan Clear Wax. Apply the wax with a soft cloth or a wax brush and rub it evenly into the paint. Let the wax sit for a few minutes and then wipe away any excess wax with a clean cloth.
    For extra protection, you can also use Annie Sloan Lacquer (varnish) instead of Annie Sloan Clear Wax. The Lacquer is available in a matte or glossy finish. Lacquer is recommended for surfaces that come into contact with water more often.
