Blogger praised this cheaper alternative to Ann Sloan chalk paint.  Poly sealant worked well rather than wax sealant as well.  No sanding required for prep.  I am going to check this out!

This girl has some fantastic tips on how to use Annie Sloan paint for beginners.  She mentions to water down the paint just a little bit to make it easier to work with and last longer.  Plus, why she likes this brand vs. others.

I also painted a swatch of Paris Grey for comparison.  As you can {hopefully} see, Paris Grey is a much cooler gray than French Linen,  which is a beautiful, warm, taupe gray.  The swatch at the very bottom is a quick and dirty weathered/driftwood effect  that you can get with Pure White, French Linen, and CoCo.
