About Anne & Chalky Paints

Anne Gilbertson Chalky Paints Founder

A long-time fan of fixing up garage sale furniture with beautiful paint jobs, I was an expert at turning that discarded chair or dresser into someone’s new prized conversation piece.

Before long, I decided to turn my hobby into a business, and Chalky Paints & Finishes was born. The problem? Industry-standard paint wasn’t cutting it. I thought if I used quality name brand paint, I’d get good results. But I was quick to realize that most of these paints would chip off at the slightest scrape.

I began the process of finding a paint manufacturer that could produce safe, easy-to-use paint made specifically for projects on vintage, re-purposed or distressed furniture. After securing an award-winning and ecologically sound manufacturer to make my product, Chalky Paints & Finishes was on its way.

Most name-brand waxes are difficult to work with, and give off a toxic odor that can linger for up to six months. With my special formula, not only is this odor a thing of the past – no rubbing or buffing is needed to finalize your new favorite piece of furniture. Chalky Paints & Finishes non-toxic products make it fun and easy for anyone to create a distressed, stylish furniture piece, even if they’ve never painted something before.

If the paints and finishes weren’t easy enough to use, I offer free consultations on paint design and color-choice ideas.

In a world of messy, toxic paint, Chalky Paints & Finishes is a breath of fresh artistic air.
