Annie Sloan CHALK PAINT® on Main Street, Catskill

Repurposing old furniture with Annie Sloan CHALK PAINT® is a global phenomenon, but did you know that there is a licensed retailer for the products and an expert in using them right here in Greene County?

Annie Sloan Chalk PaintThe Painted Piece at 393 Main Street in Catskill is what Annie Sloan Ltd., defines as a ‘Stockist’ – A small, independent store-front business licensed to not only sell their one-and-only registered Chalk Paint, but also provide workshops on its many uses, and how to get the best results.

The store’s founder, Cathy Hennessey, owned a second-home in Greene County long before opening her business. The Painted Piece provides a brick & mortar location where customers can find paint and supplies, attend workshops, or even purchase furniture, shelving, and frames with the warm and inviting CHALK PAINT® finish.

Outside the store, Cathy conducts seminars and workshops in refurbishing old furniture at galleries, studios, and meeting spaces across Greene and surrounding counties. She finds that the hands-on interaction she shares with loyal Annie Sloan enthusiasts feeds the creative process, and the result is a wonderful painted piece!
