A Lovely Duck Egg Blue

 

 

Armoire Duck Egg Blue

 

You may remember this armoire. I talked about repainting it here. I was a little tired of the blue, but still needed something that would work in my foyer (we have no coat closet). Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®  Duck Egg Blue is a color that goes with almost everything, I consider it a neutral.

I painted on one coat of a solid Duck Egg Blue and followed with light layers of Duck Egg Blue mixed with Old White to form tints. This creates depth in the finish, allowing it to look more naturally aged. To create highlights, I dry brushed  Old White on the edges and raised areas. Although you could use Dark Wax for shadowing, I painted in the shadows with French Linen and sealed with Clear Wax.

Armoires and wardrobes are my favorite furniture pieces to paint. If you have one you’re thinking of giving a new look, you will want to check out these posts, French Armoire,  Warm White Armoire, and  Lovely Lavender.

Gorgeous! I love the depth of color you get on your pieces. It’s true art. I’ve been afraid to try layering colors too much but you’ve inspired me to give it another try. Looking forward to browsing through your blog more!

Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog
before but after browsing through many of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
Anyways, I’m definitely happy I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!
