The Beauty of Annie Sloan Paint Coverage

Many of my customers ask how far a can of Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan  goes.  This weekend, my sister-in-law and I tested just to see how many pieces we could paint with one quart of Old White paint.  We used accent colors, as well.

We gave all pieces at least one coat of Old White.  Then we painted the rocker with one coat of Antoinette, the coffee table with accent of Paris Grey, the side table with Antoinette, the end table with an accent of Coco and hutch top with Antoinette on the bead board back.  And you ask, what did we have left?  We used one quarter of Old White, three quarters of a can of Antoinette and we used barely any Paris Grey or Coco.

While at first look, some might think the cost of Chalk Paint® is pricey, we used no primer, didn't have to use sand paper and we have quite a bit of paint left.

Chalk Paint® proves very cost effective and I'm proud to be Retail Partner!
