Painted Bench Loves Chalk Paint™!
Painted Bench is the Hamilton shop for Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint™. Artist Annie Sloan formulated this unique decorative paint in 1990. Her paint dries fast to an unusual rich matt finish. It will adhere to wood, metal, plastic and masonry with little or no surface prep. You can add water and her paint becomes a wash!
Painted Bench has the full line of Annie Sloan decorating products, including clear and dark waxes, decoupage sealers, craqueleur crackle-effect sets.
Discover Iron Orchid Designs moulds, transfers and stamps, a selection of unique stencils, and all the painting supplies you’ll need to get you started!
