Pure White Chalk Paint
This bright white gives a clean and classic look. This white has been compared to the color of printer paper (which sounds boring, but it’s actually beautiful!). Depending on your piece, you might want to prime first to avoid any problems with wood tannins bleeding through. Go here to learn all about how to properly prep furniture for painting.

Personally I love Pure White more than the other similar Chalk Paint colors (Original and Old White). The bright versatile hue makes it my favorite, and in my opinion, the best white Chalk Paint color. It also distresses easily and looks great on farmhouse style projects.
How to Seal Pure White Chalk Paint
To seal Pure White Chalk Paint, apply Annie Sloan’s clear or white wax with a wax brush or lint-free cloth to keep the bright color. Sealing with brown or black wax will completely change the look of your piece. It’s always advised to apply clear wax first before using a dark wax color to control how dark the piece actually gets. You can then apply more clear wax on top to remove some of the darker wax.

Great post. Pure White is my favorite, too. It’s my go-to color for most projects because it’s bright and clean. I once painted a secretary in Old White that I thought I would sell, but ended up keeping because I had the perfect spot for it. I just wish I had painted it in Pure White. It looks dingy to me. Someday I’ll repaint it, or if I downsize, sell it.

Yes I agree! Actually the formula for Old White has changed a little… it used to have a bit of a yellowish tint to it, but it doesn’t anymore. Pure White just goes with pretty much anything. 🙂
