The wait is over and I can finally share our exciting news: Simply White has officially been named the exclusive stockist of Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan in the Niagara Region! That’s right, this spring will see the launch of Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan and all of the associated products, including paint brushes, waxes, fabrics, home fragrances and more!
What is Chalk Paint®?
Chalk Paint™ is soon to be your favourite paint to restore, refinish and revitalize old furniture, walls, ceilings, floors, and and and! It is so easy to work with — rarely requiring any preparation like sanding of priming — and very versatile — it can be used both inside an outside and on just about any surface!
The colour palette is inspired by 18th and 20th century design and can be extended by mixing the hues together. Want to change the texture? Simply add water to make it smooth or leave the lid off to thicken it up. Even a different brush will change your result!
Who is Annie Sloan?
Annie Sloan is the woman to thank for the painted furniture revolution. Born in Australia, but now living and working in Oxford, English, she has been painting for over 40 years and has writen a number of books on the topic. Annie made her own special decorative paint called Chalk Paint™specifically for painting furniture, but it can all be used on walls, floors and so much more. She set up her shop in Oxford to showcase her Chalk Paint™, offer interior design services and run courses and workshops, and now we are thrilled to be the newest addition to the Chalk Paint™by Annie Sloan Stockist family!
What to expect at Simply White
We still have some administrative work to complete on our end, including training to be Chalk Paint™ experts, but we already have lots planned. Keep watching for the announcement of our Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan launch, scheduled for this spring. After that, we will begin to host workshops and feature furniture refinished with Chalk Paint™ in our store to give you some ideas. We will be carrying Annie Sloan’s full product line — decorative paints, waxes, paint brushes, home fragrances and more! You’re going to love it!
