Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan helps you create your own Mid-Century projects with ease. The range of over 30 decorative and historic colours combine well to provide an even larger colour palette, making it easy to find just the right shade for the look you want to achieve. The Chalk Paint™ formula offers excellent coverage, with only one coat often needed for a great finish, and it even covers minor flaws effortlessly.
For the Mid-Century projects shown below, a smooth finish was achieved by gently sand papering the surface and watering down the Chalk Paint™ slightly, before brushing in the same direction as the grain. Annie Sloan’s Flat Brushes were used to assist with the required finish, as they feature advanced synthetic fibres which take a large amount of paint to minimise brush marks. Finally a cotton cloth was used to apply a thin layer of Annie Sloan’s quick drying Soft Wax, to protect the surfaces. It really is as simple as that to upcycle your own, one of kind, masterpiece from old or new pieces of furniture.
