There’s much to love about Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint: you can slap it on old concrete and wooden floors; you can use it on walls and outdoor surfaces, like brick and terracotta; and, perhaps most excitingly of all, you can get super-creative and apply it to all manner of furniture. Oh, and you can do all of this (and more) without scrubbing or sanding back the surface you’re painting on. Ahh, shortcuts – we love them so. To take a peek at some inspirational DIY projects, including painting tile patterns on a timber coffee table, and sprucing up a metal garden bench, skip on over to the Annie Sloan website – then shoot through your details to win an Annie Sloan Mini Project Pack, ideal for hardcore DIY types, as well as folks getting crafty for the very first time. Good luck!
