from Frumpy Wallflower........
to Belle of the Ball......
I was happy with the wood's finish, so I decided to use that as the base color. I added 2 coats of Annie Sloan's Provence chalk paint, followed by clear wax and lots of distressing. Finished off with dark wax,
to really give it the Old World patina.
As much as I love Duck Egg Blue, the rich, luscious Provence continues to thrill me. I would love an entire wall to have
the finish of this corner shelf,
with the reddish-brown tone revealed in spots.
Perhaps something fun to do on clay pots or a brick wall.
Okay, so maybe it appears like I have a one-track mind, with all the chalk paint projects in Provence and Duck Egg Blue. The reality is that these are the first chalk paint colors I've purchased, as samples no less, and I still have plenty of paint left. Now that I know I'm in love with the paint,
and how fabulous it distresses,
I'm sure a few new colors are in order, and stat!
Next painting project.....rustic wooden tray.
