just love this paint colour! Im painting my kitchen units with this & country grey( & mixing/making it up!) by going for a french country kitchen style look. so far, Im thrilled with how its looking. The coverage is good but as I am dark waxing the door fronts it also hides a multitude of sins! I like the textured look that you can achieve with this paint also, if you apply it thickly. Dont be afraid to water it down as it can be a bit difficult to work with if too thick, just take some out of the can first and put in a separate container

My first time using Annie Sloan paint no prep is great I have painted furniture before but the prep was a pain and you get a great finish with the wax am sure on future projects the finish will be even better once I get used to using it , I have a chest of drawers , blanket box and fireplace to do wish me luck, thank you

This is my first time with any of Annie Sloane paints and its very different to what I have previously used. Its fantastic that there was no prep and it died within hours rather than days with some eggshell paints. It is however hefty work, a bit like painting with soft putty. The instructions say it can be watered down but as its expensive I didnt want to risk ruining it. I would use it again and think I would do a better job the second time as there is a bit of skill required to make sure you get an even finish

I am using Annie Sloan paint for the first time, having seen it in a magazine. So far I've painted one chair from a set of 4 and plan to do a table to match. I am very impressed with the colour, coverage and finish and I have yet to add the wax which I think will enhance it even more. I'm also impressed at how far the paint seems to go, despite it's thick consistency. I will definitely be doing more projects and already have two wardrobes in mind. The fact that you don't need to prime the surface is a huge bonus.
