Chalk Paint®


Do you have an old piece of furniture that needs new life? Want to give your kitchen cabinets a facelift without spending a bundle? 

"There is no need for tiresome priming and sanding - you can get straight to the fun bit!"  -Annie Sloan

Chalk Paint® comes in an array of 35 glorious water-based colors that are organically hyper-pigmented with no VOCs. Colors can be mixed and layered using a multitude of techniques to achieve the ultimate DIY project–the possibilities are nearly endless!

The Turquoise Hen hosts workshops to teach Chalk Paint® techniques.  Chalk Paint® 101, an essentials course, is an introduction to the Annie Sloan method. Four basic techniques are taught: Smooth/Modern finish; Two-Color Distressed; Color Washing and Textured/Rustic finish. A different approach is AFRESH! where one brings a small piece of furniture and a vision. We help achieve that vision with guidance and suggestions (and maybe a little help, too) to make your own masterpiece! As with all classes and workshops, paint and materials are provided.

Our goal for the workshops is to give you the knowledge and confidence to take home to your piece, room or home and transform your vision into a reality. Please visit the Events page for upcoming Chalk Paint® Workshop dates. Plus, reserve a spot and pay on our SHOP page. Easy-peasy.
