Easily tackle any project or piece of furniture with Chalk Paint ® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan. Completely transform, refurbish and repurpose your pieces with the simple-to-use paint. The desk was painted using Annie Sloan’s clouded stippled technique. To transform the desk we used two different colors of Chalk Paint ®, Paris Grey and Old White. We went back and forth with both colors and blended them to achieve the desired look. The top of the desk has two coats of Graphite. We used Old White with the “Springtime in Paris” stencil and a black glaze with the “Paris Postage Stamp” stencil on the top of the desk. To finish the look the entire desk was finished with clear and dark soft wax. The hardware was also chalk painted with Graphite, distressed and waxed. All paint and supplies as well as workshops to learn the techniques available at Cindi Rowley Designs in Valencia. Stencils from Royal Design Studio.
Beginning Workshop Fun! We had a blast on Saturday’s workshop learning about the paint and the different textures you can create. We created three different finishes and learned about the dark and clear waxes and worked on our own pieces as well. It was a fun day! Here are some pictures of what we were working on throughout the day, not all of the samples and pieces are completely finished.
Our next beginning workshop is Saturday June 22nd from 9 am to 1 pm. We have spots available. Still offered at a reduced price of $125. Visit our site, email or give us a call!

In one year, my company has grown and expanded to so many wonderful and amazing heights that have led me to new and exciting experiences I cannot wait to share. I have been to New Orleans twice with Chalk Paint ® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan and created painting workshops that have allowed beginners and advanced alike to share their creativity and explore a whole new world of painting.
I am now proud to announce that Cindi Rowley Designs has moved to its own space in Valencia and will be selling the Chalk Paint ® products, brushes, antique furniture that has been restored and amazing vintage and chic pieces to fit any home. I am so excited about Cindi Rowley Designs’ new venture! Stop by and check the space out and see what we have to offer. More pictures and posts to come!

I painted the space at the Country Antique Fair Mall and now it is ready to be filled with the chalk paint and fun furniture. The floor and the stencil on the floor were painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint (graphite) the stencil is painted with old white, cream and versaille. The stencil is from the Royal Design Studio Collection. It turned out great!
For three days we showcased the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint at the SCV Business Expo and even managed to snag the second place award for best booth! It was amazing to see everyone’s reaction when we told them about a paint that could go on anything….and we really mean anything.
Everyone got a little excited to hear they wouldn’t have to prime, sand or strip before the actual painting. We had a fantastic time and it was fun to showcase the new product!
