Shop Revamp

A little while ago we decided to redecorate the shop. We have always believed that it is important for clients to actually see what can be done with the paints we sell along with being able to see the colours before buying.
We repainted all our display units using Fusion Midnight Blue. A lovely colour that certainly shows of the colours of paint tins admirably.

The walls were painted using Annie Sloan Emperor’s Silk wall paint.
Whether you are looking to paint furniture, walls, interior or exterior items we have the solution for you. We also stock a large range of accessories. In fact everything you need under one roof.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

Chalk Paint™ is the brand name for Annie’s unique water-based decorative paint. It is a non-toxic and virtually odour-free paint that has minimal voc’s.
Developed by Annie Sloan specifically for furniture, it can be applied to most surfaces and very rarely requires any priming or sanding before painting. You can use it on walls, floors, wood, concrete, metal, matt plastic, earthenware, brick, stone and more – inside or outside. You can even use it to paint upholstery and dye fabric.

Chalk Paint™ produces extensive coverage approx 13.9 sq metres per litre and one coat is usually enough. It can be thinned with water and used as a wash. It can also be used as an impasto (thickly) — just leave the lid off overnight to thicken. Add Chalk Paint™ Wax for a subtle sheen, protection and durability. For an aged look, add Dark or Black Chalk Paint™ Wax. To lighten colours or for a limed look, try White Chalk Paint™ Wax.

Annie Sloan Athenian Black Chalk Paint

Introducing a new colour from Annie SLoan. For a long time people have been asking for a true black and here it is. There has always been Graphite in the Annie Sloan range which many people think of as a black. However Graphite is really a slate grey and not a true black. Athenian Black is a true, deep black developed to reflect the opaque figures and dramatic silhouetted shapes painted on Ancient Greek ceramics.

Annie was inspired by the huge collection of Ancient Greek pottery at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford to create this opaque pitch black colour. Athenian Black has been designed with an opulence of pigment in order to suggest impenetrable shadow, like the black used to render silhouetted figures on terracotta coloured clay ware in Classical times.

The seat of this IKEA stool was first painted in Chalk Paint™ in Arles, then painted with Athenian Black, then sealed with Clear Chalk Paint™ Wax. Annie then used an artist’s knife to scratch out a Greek-style likeness of a dog, revealing the Arles beneath the black. She then brushed away the scraped off paint and Waxed to finish and protect.

This baroque bed frame is the perfect stage for the pitch-black pigment-packed drama of Chalk Paint™ in Athenian Black. The colour has been allowed to take centre stage in this otherwise neutral room. Just two coats of Chalk Paint™ and a coat of Clear Chalk Paint™ Wax over the entire piece to protect and perfect for years of nights to come. The bed side table is an IKEA stool which has been upcycled with Country Grey and Clear Chalk Paint™ Wax.

The wall has been painted in a rough-luxe technique, using neutrals and greens from the Chalk Paint™ palette, incuding Olive, Versailles, Aubusson Blue on a base of Old White.
The floors are painted with Versailles and finished with Matt Chalk Paint™ Lacquer.
