Your product is only as good as the tools that you use. Oftentimes we have people that ask whether or not they should invest in an Annie Sloan brush. The truth is, you can use any brush that you have at home to paint and you can apply the wax with an old t-shirt. If you are looking at just dabbling with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and you cannot wait to get your hands on some colors, absolutely start with what you have.
But in all honesty, if you are going to buy only one thing today, buy either the small or medium natural bristle round brush to use for both painting and waxing. We can't promise it will change your life, but we know you will be hooked once you do!
