Multiple Possibilities with Chalk Paint®

More often than not, it is assumed that Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan can only be used to refurbish furniture or wooden surfaces – but that simply just isn’t the case! Did you know that you can use Chalk Paint® on canvas, upholstery, metals, and even walls?

Projects We Love

One of our favorite Chalk Paint® Projects is a simple leather chair which was refurbished by one of Annie Sloan’s Artists in Residence. Some of our favorite projects to work on at the store include refurbishing furniture, using Chalk Paint® to update upholstery, and hosting workshops to paint bird houses, canvas bags, and lazy susans.

Thinking Outside the Box

We love when our customers come in wondering what else they could possibly paint with Chalk Paint®, and we’ve encouraged them to think outside of the box. Just a few weeks ago, one of our regulars came by the store and wanted to purchase a floor lamp that we were selling. One of our talented employees had painted the base of the lamp with a custom mix of various Chalk Paint® colors to match a specific color that was already on the lamp shade. The shade had multiple colors of birds silhouettes on it.

The customer loved the lamp base, but didn’t like the birds on the lampshade, so I asked her,

“What if you painted the lampshade?”

She looked at me, stunned “Can you do that?” to which I answered “Of course your can!”

So, I helped her pack the lamp into her car with a fresh can of Cream Chalk Paint® in tow to help her make the lamp her own!

Workshops to Inspire

We really do love experimenting with Chalk Paint® here at The Painted Vieux and are always coming up with fun, new workshops to share with our creative community. From painting bird houses, lazy susans, canvas bags and cabinets the possibilities are truly endless to make any project your own with Chalk Paint®! And, if you have an itch to paint something but don’t quite know where to start, we love helping guide you along the way.
