A Brand New Blog

Welcome to the Official Annie Sloan blog. 

We wanted to create an interactive place to teach about our wonderful Annie Sloan chalk paints, share some of our favourite home-wares, showcase some of our stockists and give you a chance to have YOUR projects featured. Launching our own blog seemed the perfect answer.

Our chalk paints are by no means difficult to use but because they are completely different to anything else available, we have found that customers benefit from having a little instruction to get the very best results. 

If you are new to the Annie Sloan experience, the paint or the fabrics, then this is just the right place for you to be. We will be giving you plenty of ideas, tried-and-tested tutorials, and projects for you to try at home.

We have been active on Facebook and Twitter for some time, 
and have enjoyed the interaction enormously. We so enjoy helping our customers to learn how to use our paints and fabrics to get just the look they want in their homes.

Whether you have been using our fabric range, homewares, or chalk paints, we would simply love to see what you've been creating. The first week of each month, starting in November, will be a chance for you to link up your Annie Sloan projects.

Have you ever wondered about the face behind the name? Annie has been described by the BBC as 'one of the world's most respected experts in decorative poainting' but how did Annie Sloan get to where she is today?

Next week, we'll be sharing her journey....

Who is Annie Sloan?
