29 Annie Sloan Kitchen Table

Annie Sloan (born 19 June 1949) is an artist, expert in color and author from Britain. Annie Sloan went on to write several books on traditional painting and decorative painting techniques, starting with The Complete Book of Decorative Painting Techniques in 1988, after studying Fine Art at the university in the 1970s. This quickly adheres to most surfaces and dries to a smooth matt finish. Home Depot shoppers report that it is extremely versatile and comes at a lower price than the pioneering chalk paint company, Annie Sloan. Traditionally, chalk paint is finished with wax, but I wanted to use a finish that wouldn't need maintenance because kitchen cabinets receive such heavy wear. My go-to wood sealer is polyurethane, but it's a green color.

It will take about 30 days for Chalk Paint ® decorative paint to harden and heal, a process that lasts even longer than drying, and it will take about 4 to 6 weeks for Annie Sloan Soft Wax. Chalk paint can be used to paint almost anything— walls, kitchen cabinets, metal, wood, and even fabric — but the most common use is to give old furniture new life or make new pieces look old. The great thing about chalk paint is not a huge learning curve or a lot of preparatory work. Milk paint can be used when needed to produce a brush stroke impression, but Chalk Paint dries to a flat, uniform finish. Sanding is not strictly necessary with milk paint, but will give the paint a surface more tooth to stick better. Until use, neither Chalk Paint nor milk paint requires a first.

But when it comes to it, milk paint is much cheaper than chalk paint, creating distressed and unique finishes is easier and provides a more durable finish. To order to be stable and long-lasting like milk powder, a chalk paint coating has to be added many surface sealer coats. If the veneer surfaces are not properly prepared, the paint will not stick as it should, or it will peel off later. Luckily, the preparation is easy and requires just a little sanding and a few priming coats.
