Annie Sloan

Remember the console/bookshelf  I bought on Craigslist?  I'm going to be painting it out in Annie Sloan chalk paint.  This is not chalkboard paint, for those of you who aren't familiar.  What's so amazing about this paint is that you don't have to sand, prime or do anything special to your surface before painting.  I reached out to Ally last week who used it on a piece in her dining room and she assured me this paint is amazing!  You can mix it with other colors to create your own color or simply use it straight out of the can.

I've chosen the color Paris Gray and am going to mix it with Old White. I found this guide on Pinterest and love the color variations.  You can see the other color combinations here.


This is the current state of the piece, so I'll keep you posted on how it turns out!


Have you ever used Annie Sloan chalk paint?
