I recently painted a hutch in Aubusson Blue Chalk Paint and when I was done it looked a little well blue. So I decided to apply White Wax to highlight the details. Very easy to use, my new favorite.

HowTo get different finishes with annie sloan chalk paint

  • Brittany Coop

    Mine doesn't ever come off, but I buy mine. Maybe its the chalk paint recipe you are using?

  • Jane Hoffmis

    Help! Ive created chalk paint a few times, tried changing the way I prepped the wood before painting (such as not sanding vs sanding) and the same problem occurs. When I try to do a wax finish or pretty much any applied finish the calk paint rubs off. Whats the point of doing the chalk paint if it just comes off; or is that the point?

I painted over it using Annie Sloan’s ‘Napoleonic Blue’ Chalk Paint then added two coats coat of clear water-based satin Varathane on top. It’s for an active boy so I wanted to reinforce the paint with extra protection!

I love everything about this dresser…the color, the finish, the birds, the knobs.  I think Rachel from Shades of Blue Interiors did an amazing job.

    Sorry everyone! I mixed it from a couple different mis-tints, so the color doesn't have a name or formula.

How To Use Chalk Paint to Refinish Furniture from The easiest way to refinish furniture! #diy #decor #furniture

painted using a "Waxed Paint" technique. Annie used French Linen, which is a dark grey, then brushed on a layer of clear wax. Over this, and before the wax had completely dried, she added a second, paler coat of paint (a color wash) made from a mix of Paris Grey and Old White, thinned down with water, wiping it over with a clean, dry cloth to create a washed, dragged, and distressed effect.

    Debbie Howell I put pics of my kitchen under kitchen renos on a budget on my page.

  • Desiree Armitage

    Instead of using Annie Sloan paint I used primer,flex rock ( like for decks) to increase durability then black semi gloss mixed with drywall mud for same but cheaper than chalk paint. Did a few coats and sanded inbetween then did a couple layers of Polycrylic to seal it. Did the same for wooden cabinets but different colors layered. 1-brown bag 2- whipped cream 3- Beachy Keen. Couldn't be happier!

  • Desiree Armitage

    So I've completed the kitchen cabinets and countertop! And love love love it!!

  • Debbie Howell

    I so much want to learn how to do this but where do I start?

  • Desiree Armitage

    So...I've done the kitchen countertop black with red leather bar chairs at the island and next to tackle is the cupboards in a white wash chalk paint

I love red painted furniture but not sure I could paint a piece red and find a place for it in my house. I'm more of a blues and greens, cool colors kinda gal, but this is so stunning.
