A smooth, modern finish using Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan

Chalk Paint™ is not only suitable to create a distressed finish. With a few simple steps you can achieve a smooth, modern finish. 

1. Sand the surface with medium-grit paper to smooth out any prominent textures.

2. Water down your paint and apply it smoothly and evenly with a brush in the same direction as the grain

3. *Optional* When the paint is dry, use fine sandpaper – 600-grit or higher – to buff the finished surface.

4. Apply Clear Chalk Paint™ Wax with a lint-free cloth or brush, working the wax into the paint like hand cream and removing any excess as you go.
