Chalk Paint is Annie Sloan paint. Annie Sloan developed her now famous decorative paint, Chalk Paint , in 1990. Back then, there was no paint available with the properties Annie was looking for, so she decided to develop her own. She came to choose the name Chalk Paint because it was suggestive of its very matte almost chalky finish.

Chalk Paint is different. It is not simply paint with chalk added to it. It is not chalkboard paint. It is not made by adding plaster of Paris or grout or even baking soda to an existing paint. Chalk Paint is the unique decorative paint Annie Sloan developed for furniture, floors and walls, drawing on a lifetime of research and experience in working with paint and color. Chalk Paint adheres to most surfaces and creates gorgeous results quickly and easily. Use it for a textured finish, a distressed finish, a smooth contemporary finish or even as a wash.

Chalk Paint is a non-toxic, water-based paint that is lead-free, EG-free, odor-free and has very low volatile organic compounds (VOCs). There is only one Chalk Paint, but it offers endless possibilities.
