Chalk Paint® decorative paint & Accessories
Annie Sloan developed her now famous Chalk Paint® to answer the need she had for a paint which would have many uses from acting like limewash to looking like old painted furniture and that had a good range of color that could be extended by the user. This paint is very easy to work with and allows people to be creative as one doesn’t get involved with the technicalities of preparation and it also allows you to change your mind without hassle.
We have 31 colors in our paint range from soft and pale to bright and strong. Our range of colors is not large but we give you the reins to enlarge the range and for achieving exactly the right tone for you.

This comes to our palette from two sources - the neo-classical palaces, such as the Fontainebleau Palace and in Schloss Charlottenburg in Potsdam, and from the villages around Provence where countless artists have been inspired by the colors of painted furniture, shutters and doors.
Old fashioned roses and the color of old plaster. This is a soft pale pink with a hint of brown in it so the pink is not too sweet.
The inspiration is the rich glowing yellow is the color associated with the town of Arles in the South of France. It is a rich yellow ochre with a hint of orange juice and with with Old White added the color is warm and gentle. It replaces the quieter Sienna Yellow and is new to the Annie Sloan palette.
The color is named and designed after the beautiful deep grey blue found on the classic 18th and 19th century Aubusson rugs from France. It is an elegant color that works well with many colors as it is a dark neutral but in particular it works with Paris Grey. It is also a color found in Scandinavian painted furniture.
An elegant greyed green, this is the color found in French woodwork.
Our strong floor lacquer to go over Chalk Paint® for wood or concrete surfaces. This is matte but there is a very slight sheen because we want to offer some strength. A matte finish is less strong than a shiny finish generally.
As a guideline we suggest this will cover approx 107sqft but this will vary according to the absorbency of the floor.
This is a putty color using greenish raw umber, and is a really useful color. It 's terrific on its own and with white as in the chair pictured here, or for distressing as a top coat with Cream or Scandinavian Pink underneath. It is generally seen as a more rustic color good for a country look rather than the chateau.
Another way to use it is to mix it into another color such as Chateau Grey or Duck Egg Blue to make them paler and knocked back.
A soft pale warm creamy yellow the color of clotted cream. We suggest you use it under Paris Grey or of course on its own perhaps with Old White on edgings and details.
