We are over the moon excited to incorporate this new line of paint & supplies into what we currently offer at the shop, and we look forward to helping our customers (you!) take your DIY furniture refinishing projects to a whole new level using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™.



why we love it

We have been using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ in our workshop over the past year, experimenting with different techniques and colours on furniture pieces we’ve refinished for sale in the shop.  We have found the paint and waxes really nice to work with and very versatile.  The colour palette is beautiful and this has become our go-to product choice when painting furniture.  The best part – no stripping, sanding or priming is required because the paint has been formulated to bond to almost any surface, including varnishes and lacquers!  A light sanding can create a slightly distressed look (and is super fun!) and then applying the Soft Wax as a final coat finishes the job.  It deepens the colour and cures to a gorgeous, slightly satiny, durable finish.  Transforming out-of-date furniture into fresh and unique pieces has been lots of fun and quite addictive – we’re pretty sure you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Check out the COLOUR SELECTION – these can be layered and mixed to create custom colours as well – this is just the beginning!

Next week, Vicki will be leaving to attend an Annie Sloan training session to learn more about finishes & techniques from the experts themselves.  Then, starting this spring, we will be sharing our experience by offering our own workshop series through the Tin Barn to help you get familiar with the paint, techniques & colours.  More information to come on this later!
Contact us if you would like us to email you once our workshop dates are confirmed.



Our first order will be placed in mid-April with the goal of having it available at the shop in May.  If you are already a fan of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ and want to make sure you will be able to get a certain colour, or any specific supplies, feel free to contact us in advance to pre-order and reserve what you need!  We are happy to do this for you as we anticipate that there will be a little bit of trial and error in determining how much of each product we should order as we get a feel for the demand in the early stages.  Please contact us before April 16th to make sure we can get your requests in.


The sky is the limit on what you can achieve – Check out the Chalk Paint Inspiration board we’ve started on Pinterest.
