New Arrivals ~ Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
Do you have vintage furniture that could do with a bit of love through a makeover? Or have you changed the colour scheme of your space and have pieces that would be better suited in a different shade? Well.. Trader Trove are officially a stockist of Annie Sloan chalk paint!
In 1990, with a background in fine art, Annie Sloan created her own range of paints for decorative purposes, which filled a huge gap in the market. Her paints, stencils, inspirational books and magazines are now available in fifty-five countries and have given at-home-furniture-makeovers a whole new direction.
‘Recycle, re-use, re-imagine,’ is Annie Sloan’s message and overall mission as a company. We are in an age where living an environmentally friendly, sustainable life has never been more apparent or important. Annie Sloan’s purpose is to reduce waste by giving older items a new lease on life and inspiring people to get creative!
Chalk paint is not only available in forty-two divine colours, it can also be applied to just about any surface, indoors or outdoors and is super easy to use. No sanding or priming is required to get started and if you can’t `find the exact colour you are after, these paints mix perfectly.
Whether it is your first time attempt at DIY to spruce up your beloved furniture or you are an interior designer, or artist looking for some high quality paints to help your vision come to life, these paints will not disappoint! With plenty of step-by-step online tutorials of different techniques on multiple surfaces, created by Annie Sloan and existing customers; creating a unique masterpiece or refurbish a favourite item has never been more simple.
