Gonna Do Me Some Chalk Painting!


Annie Sloan HERE I COME!
Above are the three colors I have available to me...now which one to choose!!!
They are, left to right, Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue, Provence, and Florence.

I wasn't sure what they would look like on a whole piece of furniture so, I ask Google!
Duck Egg Blue og Old White

I like this color, not nearly as much courage is needed to use it, but it seems a little drab for what I am looking for.

But then I find this one...

Isn't this blue cute!?!  Province looks just a bit brighter and blue-er than the Duck Egg.
Two coats of Province, coat of clear wax, coat of dark wax.

Hmmm...So province is a lot brighter of a blue....but I kinda wanted a little green to it...

This one had to take a ton of time.  It is drop dead gorgeous though!!!  I am really wondering if I would like this on Grandma's china hutch {cousins reading this don't kill me}.
She spraypainted it gold, painted in blops of Provence, Antibes Green, and wet the thing and washed it with Old White.  After it was all to her liking she rubbed on a copper glaze.  Wow!  She was going for a french, Verdigris kind of look.  Bravo.  I think you have it!!!

Mixture of Duck Egg and Province

Atta Girl Says: Custom Handpainted Caribbean Blue Buffett
AttaGirl Mixed equal parts of Provence, Old White, and Florence.  Once waxed and dried, washed it with Duck Egg to darken it a bit.  Waxed again.

Yipes.  I am even more confused than when I started.  I like them all.  I do thing the Florence is a bit more than I wanted alone, but in a paint cocktail, it could be perfect!  

I go to the paint store tomorrow.  Wish me luck!
