How to Renew Furniture with Chalk Paint®

Blog / October 3, 2023

Renewing your furniture with the iconic Chalk Paint®, developed by Annie Sloan, can transform tired pieces into stunning works of art. This unique paint is known for its versatility, and while Jerry’s Antiques doesn’t sell Annie Sloan products, we offer a different approach. Instead of buying the paint from us, you can bring in your furniture piece to be refinished by our skilled team.

Is Sanding Necessary Before Using Chalk Paint®?

Unlike traditional paints, Chalk Paint® eliminates the need for extensive priming and sanding. It adheres beautifully to various surfaces, even those with existing finishes like varnish or lacquer. However, at Jerry’s Antiques, we won’t be advising you on the application process, as our focus is on refinishing furniture that you bring in.

On What Surfaces Does Chalk Paint® Perform Best?

Chalk Paint® is incredibly versatile and can revitalize a wide range of furniture pieces, from contemporary to vintage antiques. WWe can transform wooden furniture, iron bed frames, metal cupboards, and even aged laminate or melamine pieces, breathing new life into them.

What Makes Chalk Paint® Better Than Regular Paint?

Chalk Paint® offers several advantages over regular paint, making it an excellent choice for furniture renewal:

  • Ease of Use: Chalk Paint® is user-friendly, boasting a thick consistency that makes application a breeze, even for beginners. It requires minimal surface preparation, saving you time and effort.
  • Vintage Look: Achieving a worn-in, vintage look is easy with Chalk Paint®. You can sand or rub in paint layers to achieve charming personality and character in your pieces.
  • Ultra-Matte Finish: Unlike glossy or satin finishes, Chalk Paint® dries to an ultra-matte finish, adding a touch of sophistication and elegance.
  • Versatility: With a wide range of colors available, Chalk Paint® allows you to create unique and personalized looks for your furniture.
