Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Baytown, Texas

The Annie Sloan look comes partly from the use and development of her own unique range of decorative paint, called Chalk Paint. Developed over 20 years ago, Chalk Paint and Annie's techniques for painting and finishing do not follow the rules but allow you to work in an independent, intuitive and creative way. These colours and techniques come from Annie's initial training as a fine artist, which encouraged the use of historical colour and design. Annie's particular interest is in the 18th and early 20th Centuries. Annie's design style uses her own painterly and creative motifs, as well as calling on the classic traditions.
