Design Trend: Chalk It Up With Chalk Paint! {Video}

More than 14 years ago, Annie Sloan showcased Chalk Paint in her Oxford, England, shop — showing that it can transform just about any surface. Sloan invented Chalk Paint more than 20 years ago, and it is now trending in the US.

Think about those great tables, cabinets and chairs you have tucked into a corner of the garage or attic — good bones … but a little dated, right?

Transform them into showpieces using Chalk Paint. Really.

This paint has a velvety, matte finish that works wonders on floors, furniture, walls, trim, doors, metals, concrete, wood, plastic and much more.  Chalk Paint requires very little prep work. It looks polished and pretty when applied straight up. But, if the mood strikes, you can use it to create a distressed look in several easy steps.

There are more than 30 colors to choose — from Antibes Green to Scandinavian Pink. You can use two or more colors for an aged, distressed look. And Sloan has a series of demo videos to show you how simple the process is.
