Annie Sloan invented her revolutionary furniture paint, Chalk Paint®, over 25 years ago and hasn’t stopped refining and improving her formula since. The Drawing Room is a proud stockist of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and the entire Annie Sloan collection
. Annie trained as a fine artist and turned to decorative work after university in the mid 1970’s, whilst painting murals in houses as commissions. By 1987, Annie had written the phenomenally successful book, ‘The Complete Book of Decorative Paint Techniques’, which is considered to be the industry bible on the subject. Unable to find the paints that she wished to work with, Annie used her knowledge of colour, paint, pigments, and art history and developed Chalk Paint™/® in 1990. Oxford has been Annie’s base for over 20 years and is where she first developed Chalk Paint™/®. She has owned a shop there since 2000 and makes Chalk Paint®/™ in HQ where her artist’s studio now lives.
