Versatility of Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan®
This month we are going to focus on the paint that we use in Charmed by Heirlooms, Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan®, and the many uses it has.
Because Charmed by Heirlooms is an upscale resale store sometimes a donation comes in that has great bones but for some reason we would not sell it as-is. Perhaps it has a scratch, it is discolored, or it has some type of damage. We also receive donations that might be outdated and needing love. We have been using Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan® at Charmed by Heirlooms to for several years to repurpose, upscale and refresh worn-out or lovingly used items.
In addition, we try to think outside the normal uses and consider other ways that we might be able to make something “pop” with the use of paint.
Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan® can be used on fabric, metal, plastic, any type of wood, (raw, varnished or painted) and does not require pre-sanding or stripping of previous materials. Because of this, it is very versatile. In addition, it is very forgiving and very easy to use, not requiring any special techniques or talent.
Here are some items that we’ve upscaled with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan®, but we’ve only painted half of the table and stool to see the difference of the two sides.
Make sure and watch our KREX segment to see more before and after transformations.
