Cottage on Main, getting creative with Chalk Paint

RICHMOND, Ky. (WTVQ)- When Annie Sloan developed her unique decorative paint, Chalk Paint, she revolutionized the world of decorative painting.  Frustrated with the lack of paint options available at the time, she created her own signature paint – with its remarkable versatility and ease of use – for everyone from the novice to the professional to enjoy.

Annie developed her now famous Chalk Paint in 1990 to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would have many uses.  She came to choose the name “Chalk Paint” because it was suggestive of its very matte-almost chalky-finish.

Chalk Paint adheres to most surfaces and creates gorgeous results quickly and easily.  Use it for a textured finish, a distressed finish, a smooth contemporary finish, or even a wash.  It very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outside on just about any surface-from wood to metal, and matte plastic to terra cotta.  It can revitalize old furniture, walls, ceilings, and floors with ease.  It’s easy, fun, and makes amazing results accessible to everyone.

With a color palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century décor and design, you can easily mix the colors together to extend the range.  Add a little water to it to make it smooth, thicken it up by leaving the lid off the can.

Cottage on Main opened in October 2014 in Downtown Richmond.  With much success outgrew that space and moved in August of 2016 to new location. Stop by the store and check out their Farmhouse Collection of all custom-built pieces and the Cottage Collection of painted cottage style pieces.
