Duck Egg Blue Dresser


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:

Classic Wall Finishes.

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.
