Black chalk paint is probably most known by mothers who painted a wall to create an entire canvas for their child to draw and have fun on, which can easily be wiped clean. There is so much more to chalk paint, specifically one of the best quality chalks: Annie Sloan.
We regard Annie Sloan as the best brand of chalk paint and only stock her to ensure you get the best quality product for your project. This particular black furniture paint doesn’t smell strong and provides an excellent matte finish that dries fast and that you can reapply again within hours. It is also effortless to clean up after.
Mint by Michelle also stocks waxes, brushes and books by Annie Sloan as well as sanding pads and metal transfer sheets to complete your collection of quality products.
Chalk paint can initially be tricky to work with as it doesn’t adhere to or settle on furniture like other paints do. The matte look you will be left with is also very different to the look you might have seen from regular, glossy paint, so don’t expect a shiny look. Here are some examples of the Annie Sloan furniture paint we stock:
Chalk paint is a great way to give new life to old furniture or doors, and you can leave it with a matte finish or sand it down in certain areas to create a more used look and feel that will add to the fresh yet antique look. As stated, you can also use the Athenian Black to paint an entire wall as a wipeable canvas for your kids or you to develop your creative skills without making anything permanent on a canvas that will just take up space.
