So What is Chalk Paint?

Chalk paint is a type of paint that can easily be applied to furniture or almost any surface to create a chalk-like matte appearance.  Annie Sloan made the original chalk paint in 1990, but many companies have come out with their own versions since.

There are also a ton of different colors to choose from pastels to bright and colorful.  Each brand will have its own unique colors.

What is so great about Chalk Paint?

In my opinion, almost everything!  You can apply chalk paint on almost any surface without any prep work.  That’s right, no sanding and no priming!! WooHoo!!  Yes, please! (Except for rare occasions).

You can get large pieces of furniture or cabinets painted quickly.  Chalk paint goes on easily and dries quickly too.  You can also have lots of fun with it by easily distressing items to give them an aged appearance.  

You can also add different color waxes to make the item more whitewashed or aged, whatever look you are going on.  There are endless amounts of creativity when coming to chalk painting furniture.  Afterward, you will have a truly one of a kind unique item.

On my chalk painted cabinets, I didn’t even remove the doors!  I just opened the paint and started painting over the ugly oak cabinets (tutorial below!)
