Why Choose Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Paris Grey?
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey offers an array of benefits that make it an ideal choice for your furniture makeover projects. Here are a few things you should consider before using this paint:
- Versatility: The Paris Grey shade is timeless and can complement any interior style, from vintage to modern, and blends in with any home decor.
- Superior Coverage: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint provides excellent coverage, allowing you to transform your furniture with just a few coats. Most of my chalk painted furniture makeovers only take 2 coats of chalk paint.
- No Primer Required: Save time and effort as this paint adheres well to most surfaces, eliminating the need for priming.
- Non-Toxic: A non-toxic and virtually odor-free paint makes it perfect to use around children and pets. This was a big reason why I choose chalk paint over latex paint. I knew I would be painting lots of furniture and didn’t want the fumes or chemicals to affect my family, pets or me.
- Distressing Made Easy: Achieve a charming, distressed look effortlessly by using sandpaper or a baby wipe to reveal the underlying layers.
- Wax Finish: Seal your painted furniture with Annie Sloan Clear Wax for added protection and a beautiful satin finish.
