DIY With the Best Paint in the World!



Annie Sloan Sanding Pads

DIY with the best paint in the world!

Paint Everything!

Since Chalk Paint® adheres to almost any surface – indoor and out – and there’s rarely a need to sand or prime, it really is the best way to DIY!

Most times, prep consists of simply cleaning and dusting off your surface before painting. If you do, however, need to remove loose paint, rust, or other surface debris, Annie Sloan Sanding Pads are perfect for the job. Certain glossy, melamine, or laminate surfaces might also benefit from a quick sanding before painting.

Custom Colors with Chalk Paint®!

Did you know that it’s super easy to mix colors from the Chalk Paint® palette together to create your own custom color? Because our paint contains little to no black pigment it means that colors stay clean and vibrant when mixed!

Look what you can do by mixing Giverny with its complementary color (on the color wheel) English Yellow!

Our Exciting News!

Chalk It Up Norcross owner Lynn White recently returned from a week of training with Annie Sloan in Oxford, England, and she is ready to rock and roll to share new finishes and new workshops!

And in order to spend more time with her very special Dad, who is in declining health, Lynn is pleased to announce her new partners, TJ Campbell and Tracy Gilleland.

TJ and Tracy, along with staffers you already know and love, Deb Candal and Linda Kirchner, all attended Chalk Paint® training in New Orleans. Now the entire team is up to date on all of the latest products, tips, tricks, and workshops available, and they are all qualified to teach!

TJ brings a variety of experience to Chalk It Up. He began his career in theatrical production, primarily in lighting and scenic design. TJ then operated MCI’s Executive Briefing Center in Atlanta for ten years where he was responsible for executive presentation and multi-media production. Since then TJ has managed a corporate AV and production department as well as working as an independent event producer. He is happy to now be a partner with Chalk It Up and is excited to be working with Chalk It Up customers and Annie Sloan products which he says are unlike any he used in show production.


Tracy has been in the Interior Design industry since 1985, including operating her own business, a drapery workroom, upholstery studio and fabric store. Tracy has extensive experience in the design and fabrication of custom window treatments, ottomans and bedding as well as upholstery of all types of furniture. Several years ago she discovered Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan and fell completely in love with the paint for its numerous qualities, particularly with how it combines so well with upholstered pieces. Tracy is very excited about the opportunity of partnering with Lynn and looks forward to meeting and working with Chalk It Up customers.
See you soon at the shop, and as always, shop online 24/7!
