Nineteen opened in 2013 stocking vintage furniture and this is when we discovered Annie Sloan chalk paint and loved its creativity for painting furniture. We were so pleased to become a stockist and be invited into the amazing array of inspiring independent shops working with Annie. We share our experience with chalk paint to customers and offer a full range of Annie Sloan workshops. All our walls and furniture in the shop are finished with the products.
We love chalk paint for its versatility and ability to allow you to express your personality. Over the years of stocking Annie Sloan chalk paint and products and painting lots and lots of furniture we have developed a passion and distinctive style of paint effects that have become Nineteen's signiture look.
Working with black wax is one of our favourite finishes to create a statement, from rustic to shiny smooth. Prepare for messy hands with this finish. Working with old wood allows the black wax to soak into the surface, building up layers and buffing can result in a finish that reflects an ebonised look, smooth and shiny black. For a more rustic feel work black wax into reclaim or old wood leaving the character of the wood to dictate the coverage.
