As a rough guide, one quart of Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan covers approximately 150 square feet or the equivalent of a large dresser.
For most purposes, one or two coats of paint are enough. Chalk Paint® adheres to almost any surface, and there is rarely any need to sand or prime before painting.
Before use, tip the can upside down for a few minutes and then shake for about 30 to 45 seconds. Remove the lid and stir well. If the paint is too thick just add a little water and stir.
