Using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan


Chalk Paint® even works outdoors! It's particularly good on brick, concrete, stone, and terracotta - and there's no need to wax it. On garden furniture, a coat of water-based exterior varnish will protect against the stains and keep the finish looking good for longer. Look for a varnish with UV protection to prevent color fading.

Chalk Paint® will fade in the sun and age gracefully with the elements. It is a water-based decorative paint and does not have any weatherproof or protective properties. Depending on the look you want and the site-specific conditions, you many find it needs a fresh coat periodically.


It is not recommended for teak or other oily woods. Always test in an inconspicuous area if in doubt!
