Annie Sloan is probably the main reason for the painted furniture revolution through her easy, lively and creative approach to painting. She has been painting for over 40 years as well as writing numerous books on the subject. She has created her own very special paint called Chalk Paint® specifically designed for furniture, that can also be used on walls and in paintings.
Annie trained as a painter but turned to decorative work and in 1987 she wrote the phenomenally successful book "The Complete Book of Decorative Paint Techniques" which was followed by over 20 other books on traditional paints, colors and techniques and has led to total sales of well over 2 million books worldwide and in eleven languages. Her latest books are the highly successful "Creating the French Look" published in April 2008 and "Quick & Easy Paint Transformations" published in April 2010.
Annie Sloan developed her now famous Chalk Paint® to answer the need she had for a paint which would have many uses from acting like limewash to looking like old painted furniture and that had a good range of colour that could be extended by the user. This paint is very easy to work with and allows people to be creative as it is super easy to use and it also allows you to be flexible.
