Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Video Tutorial #5 - Dark Wax

Today is the final installment of my Chalk Paint vlog series, and we are talking about dark wax. For those of you who haven't worked with it before, this stuff is amazing. It gives your piece a antique look in no time. If you love that lived in, shabby look, you will love dark wax.

It can be intimidating, but the results are worth the anxiety. I hope my tips will help you out.

I never got to perform a "formal" photo shoot with this piece because I sold it the day after my garage sale. I got to deliver her to her new home, and I know she will be very happy there. Her owner has great style, and it looked perfect in her bedroom. Here are the few shots I took before I said goodbye to her.

Thank you for following along with me as we upcylced this dresser. I hope you feel empowered to tackle your own painting project now. Please, please, please, let me know if I can answer any questions for you and share your work with me! I might even feature it on the blog. Happy painting!



  1. I want to thank you for doing these videos! Im getting ready to paint a table for my niece, and it's the first time someone has asked me to paint a piece of furniture for them. I have painted and distressed my own furniture, but doing it for someone else who is going to PAY me for it, well....it's a bit scary. But your videos were so worth watching and Im ready now to paint!! I hope you make more videos of you painting furniture. They are very helpful. Thank you again.

    1. Hi Christy,

      Thank you so much for your kind words! I am so glad you found the videos helpful. I still get nervous every time I paint something for a client, but trust yourself. I know you can do it. Send me some of your work. I would love to see it and maybe even feature it here! -Christina
