Charleston Farmhouse was once home to pioneering artists, thinkers and creatives of the 20th century. Today, it’s filled with vibrant furnishings and decorations that mimic its roots—including beautifully painted walls and accessories. Annie fell in love with Charleston while studying fine art, so it's no surprise the farmhouse is exactly what inspired her three new decorative Chalk Paint kits: Rodmell, Firle and Tilton. Each kit includes three complementary Chalk Paint hues, clear Chalk Paint Wax and an inspiration guide.


The best part about this collaboration is that the paints can be used on walls, but also on furniture or for fun DIY projects. Annie herself went to work on some pretty cool chairs below. Want to recreate them? Keep reading for step-by-step instructions.
