Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Projects


I’ve been working on refinishing a few pieces I received from my 95 year old aunt. I used Annnie Sloan chalk paint with the clear wax on both projects.  There’s a million great posts on how to apply Annie Sloan paint, so I won’t repeat it here, but hopefully you can get some ideas!

This cedar chest was in pretty bad shape. Here’s the “before” picture:

I also got this great little desk that my kids use for homework.  While I was working on it, I found a drawer signed by my great Uncle dated 1978 as the last time it was refinished.  Here’s the before:

And here’s the after.  I used Fresh Linen for the main part of the desk and Graphite for the top.
