Who in the world is Annie Sloan?

I just finally had to google and find a picture of this wonderful Annie that has blogland in tissy to get a hold of some of her paint. I went to her site here.  

If you want a good look at some projects that Kim and Debbie have done with her stuff go here or here.  Debbies is one of her older posts.

Here is what the website says about the paint being so special....  go over and take a look.
Must be some really super duper stuff.  No plug asked for by Annie S.  Just curiosity got to me and now I can put a face with a paint.

Why our Paint is Special

Reasons Why it's Good!

Chalk Paint is a very special paint for very many reasons

1. It's the BEST paint for painting furniture by a long way
2. You can use the paint by diluting it with water to make a wash to show the wood grain
3. You can use it as an impasto ( thickly) - leave the lid off to thicken
4. You can use it on any surface, indoors and out ( the outside of our shop was painted in it- perfect!)
5. No need to prime or prepare
6. The colours are mixed intelligently and the web site shows how you can adapt your colours for your use
7. It's a girls' paint, but boys can use it too.
8. It's flexible so you can be creative and change you mind
9. The paint can be washed off your brush even when you find your brush weeks later. [I never do that of course.]
10. It allows your walls to breathe so it is perfect for cottage walls
11. Extremely low VOCs so it is good for the environment
12. It doesn't form a skin on it when you leave the lid off - just add some water if it's too thick
13. Very little black is used in their manufacture so the colours are mixed with thought
14. You can paint it on walls for a soft matt effect or wax it for a polished plaster effect


  1. Interesting info. I still havn't tried it. I do see if all over blogland. Hugs, Marty

  2. Love it Lori, thanks for the link and for the info. You are funny! Have a great day.

  3. O, I just read your comment over at DebbieDoos and wanted to tell you YES, SHE IS REAL..and YES, the paint is awesome.
    Hope I win some. :))

  4. I googled her some weeks ago too. But....I wasn't creative enough to write a post about it!! By the way, my paint is on the way. ;)

  5. I know! Every party I link to has items painted with her paint.

    Thanks for do the search for me.

  6. Hi Lori! I'm probably the only one in blogland who hasn't ordered some of this chalk paint! :) I love seeing all the projects though.
    Thanks for all the info!
    Hope you can come to my party.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. I haven't tried it yet, but it sure is getting a lot of great reviews.

  8. Thanks for sharing, I have wondered about this Chalk Paint craze on blog land. If I find it here in Canada I'll have to give it a try.

  9. Well, that answers a few questions! Her paint is definitely all the rage right now! She has a few books I'd love to order, too.

  10. Thanks for posting these tips from Annie about her paint. This is on my list of projects to get to VERY soon...I hope!
