Learn How to use Chalk Paint at Cullman’s Vintage West

Bring your own piece to work with, or we can provide something for you – it’s up to you.”
Teresa Daniel, Owner of Vintage West

CULLMAN – Chalk Paint was developed over 20 years ago by Annie Sloan and now it is a famous decorative paint. She created the paint in order to have a versatile paint that would have many uses. She wanted something that acted like limewash and created the look of old painted furniture. She called it Chalk Paint because of its beautiful chalk-like, matte finish. 

The great thing about Chalk Paint is that it’s very easy to work with. Rarely does it require preparation, such as sanding or priming. It can be used indoors or outside, and can be applied to just about any surface.

It can completely revitalize the look of old furniture, walls, ceilings and floors. It's fun, easy and makes spectacular results available to everyone.

If you are interested in learning how to use Chalk Paint and want to gain a little confidence before tackling your first piece, Vintage West invites you to take part in one of their weekly paint classes.
