This is your one stop shop for all my video tutorials on painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. I am an everyday girl who has found a lot of joy in painting furniture and giving old, dated pieces some TLC. Before I picked up my first brush, I spent a lot of time watching videos just like these to see what I was in for. My hope is that they will inspire you to pick up a brush, too, and see what you can create.

In this video, you will learn all the products I use to chalk paint my way. For a detailed list of where I got my products check out the original post.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Video Tutorial #1 - Prepping and 1st CoatIn this video, I show you the basics behind prepping your piece and putting on the first coat of paint. There is no stripping or sanding involved in this process, so you can get painting faster than with you typical latex paint.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Video Tutorial #2 - 2nd Coat of Paint
In this video, I talk about applying a second coat of paint and the benefits of using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. The second coat isn't always necessary depending on the look you are going for.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Video Tutorial #3 - DistressingIn this video, I cover the technique of distressing. Distressing is a great way to give your piece that lived in look in no time at all. It can be tricky at first, but learning to distress the right way will give your furniture a beautiful, antiqued look.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Video Tutorial #4 - Clear WaxIn this video, I show you how to apply clear wax with a brush. Waxing your furniture has a bit of a learning curve, but the investment of your time is well worth it. A wax finish is by far the best way to seal in paint and won't leave it looking plastic or shiny.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Video Tutorial #5 - Dark WaxIn this video, I demonstrate how to work with dark wax. Dark wax adds depth and character to any piece. It gives you that aged and antiqued look like your piece came from a French country cottage.
