More about the Chalk Paint Piano

I have had so many sweet comments about this fun chalk paint piano.  Several people have wondered where to purchase real Chalk Paint.  So, here is a little info about Chalk Paint: 

 Chalk Paint is actually a registered trademark of the paint Annie Sloan created in 1990.  The term seems to be used more loosely now as people have ways to make your own and I believe other stores carry similar products.

What is Chalk Paint?  It is called Chalk Paint because of it's velvety smooth matte texture.  It is NOT chalkboard paint :)

Chalk Paint goes on amazingly well and covers great.  It's really hard to explain how fabulous it is unless you just try it.  (no I am not getting paid to say this!)

Where to buy?  In my town, one of the antique booths at my antique mall sells the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint products.  If you feel you don't have access to the paint, you can go to their website and order it.  Go to THIS website and click to find a retailer near you.

After I painted the piano, we used Annie Sloan's Soft Wax with wax brush.  This is similar to a finishing wax.  It makes the piece of furniture feel amazing!  The piano feels like it has looked like this for 100 years!
