Overall Thoughts on the Annie Sloan vs. Rust_Oleum Chalk Paint Overall I’d say these two paints are extremely similar. However, if I had to pick just one I’d go with the Rust_Oleum Chalked Paint. I’m honestly a little surprised by that, just because I’ve loved Annie Sloan paint for so many years now, but I really do think this version from Rust_Oleum is just as good after going through this comparison. And you can’t beat the price–it’s almost half the cost, which is a HUGE savings. It’s easy to apply, it adheres well, the finish is smooth, and it’s overall a really great option. Both brands also offer a protective top coat or wax, which is supposed to seal the paint and help protect against damage. I think you could get away with not using it with the Rust_Oleum paint. It dries to a very smooth finish that is actually really nice. I’m just not sure how helpful that would be. And to be really honest with you guys, I don’t think the Annie Sloan wax makes much of a difference either. You might remember that I chalk painted our bathroom vanities and after that experience, I can say the wax doesn’t do much “protecting” in my personal opinion. Not only is it crazy expensive, but I don’t think it does much at all other than smooth down the rough, dry finish. You can read about that fiasco with our bathroom vanities here. The only real limitation I see with the Rust_Oleum paint is that you don’t have a large color selection. It looks like Amazon currently offers seven different colors, whereas Annie Sloan has three to four times that many.
