Annie Sloan Chalk Paint closeupOne of the most intimidating things about paint furniture is the prep work. There is cleaning and sanding and wiping, step after tedious step to just get ready to paint.  And if you want to tackle a full kitchen of cabinets, forget about it.  You’ll spend what will seem like the rest of your life in this project black hole!

That is why I absolutely LOVE this paint. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint takes the prep out of the paint project! You still will want to clean your furniture or cabinets but that is all! Just pick up the brush and go! No sanding, no priming!! After two, maybe three coats of paint you can start using your updated piece.

There is an added level of protection for those highly used pieces…the wax finish. It is as simple as the painting. Just wipe it on, then wipe off the excess!  The great thing about using chalk paint is that it is so popular right now and there are tutorials all over YouTube.

You can order this project or pick it up in Altamonte Springs at Adjectives Market Place.

Send us pictures of your project before and after. We will share them with everyone!

About The Author

I am the mom of the typical American family that did a not-so-typical thing! We moved 1000 miles south of our hometown to a city we knew little about. Those first few weeks were crazy! I didn't go anywhere without putting the address into my GPS. I drove the wrong way on the Turnpike & the 408 and at one point ended up in Winter Park when I was headed to Winter Springs! We struggled with everything from finding doctors and dentists to determining where to grocery shop. Every trip to get gas or dinner was a new exploration and adventure. Within a few weeks, however, we had made a serious dent in our "To Find" list and started to feel a little confident in this new city. Today, It has been nearly 2 years since we pulled that moving truck into Orlando and we all couldn't be happier or more settled! This isn't the path for every family...that's for sure. But if you are prepared for the same journey, hopefully I can be a resource for you so you don't end up in Hunter's Creek when you are trying to go to Altamonte Springs!
