Home Depot Now Sells Chalk Paint!!

I did a happy dance when I heard about this!!!  I posted here, here and here, about my love of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  One of the disadvantages I find, however, is the cost and local availability.  Both of those problems are solved now that a brand of chalk paint is sold at Home Depot.  It is by DecoArt and is called Americana Decor.

It comes in 29 shades that are very similar to Annie Sloan colors.

The best part is that a 16oz. can is ONLY $15.98.  A can of Annie Sloan will set you back about $38.00.  The Home Depot sells it online and it will ship to your store for free!!

I am excited to try out this paint.  I would hope it is good quality, but you never know.  You can head over here to see how Cassie at Hi Sugarplum transformed her dresser using this paint.

It seems like Annie Sloan Chalk paint knockoffs are everywhere these days.  I saw some being sold at the local Antique Faire the other day!

What do you think?  Are you doing a happy dance too now that Home Depot carries this stuff? Have you ever used an Annie Sloan knockoff?  Do tell in the comments!

    I bought 8 oz jars of it to get free shipping. It’s a 100 miles round trip to the closest Home Depot and that seemed the best value money wise. I found it to be thicker than Annie Sloan. I’ll be transitioning to this product or mixing up my own product with Home Depot’s Behr paint.

    • Good to know Judy. I have not tried it yet. Have you tried watering it down? I know that Annie Sloan can be diluted to achieve your desired consistency. I have also made my own chalk paint using Home Depot Behr and calcium carbonate and had good results 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and good luck to you!

  2. Is there a American brand wax coating too?
