Hi there blog friends!
Happy Monday to you!
I did my first project with Annie Sllaon’s Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue.
Can I just say that it was love at first sight?
Here’s the before shot of this great dresser. Extremely well-made piece with great bones.
I also picked up these cure chairs on the same treasure hunt weekend….
How about those great mucking boots in my size?
I used two coats of the Duck Egg Blue, used some Old White to accent the lines on the drawers, and then applied a coat of the clear wax and then some dark wax.
I was going to buy new hardware, but decided to paint the existing in Old White and I’m very happy with the result.
The chairs went Duck Egg Blue also. I recovered the seats with a vintage tablecloth we found several months ago.
I love the yellow/gold with this wonderful shade of grey/blue/green of the paint.
Another great find—these two smaller scale matching bookcases…
I didn’t hate the red, but decided they needed to go more neutral.
Old Ochre paint was used. I did need two coats to cover this red.
I added the clear and then the dark wax. I read somewhere that the Old Ochre with the dark wax looked liked aged paper.
It does! It’s a great neutral color with an aged and yummy look.
If you haven’t given this paint a try….
What are you waiting for?
It is truly amazing.
I order mine from these wonderful vendors:
Check them out.
Hope your week is off to a great start.
Mine sure is!
I'm linking up to one of my favorite parties- Kelli's Restore It Wednesday. Check out the great features over there this week.
