Chalk Painted Secretary

 

Chalk Painted Secretary

 

Mahogany Reproduction Secretary painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. Layering and mixing of colors. First coat- Old White.  Second Coat- Mix of Florence and Old White. Final Coat- French Linen mixed with varying amounts of Old White to create depth and texture. Interior- mix of Old White (90%) and Florence (10%).

Layering of different colors creates an authentic, rich finish. For more projects where I have used a layering technique, check out these posts.  At Your Service,  In the Looking Glass, French Curves, and  Today It’s a Console

Leslie,

This is stunning! I love the colors. You are so skilled! I know this was a great deal of work (I can only imagine the cubbyholes!!). I hope you are pleased that you tackled such a project and that it turned out so well. I so wish I could watch you in action!

At what point did you sand this piece and when did you wax?
Clear wax — dark–or both??
I LOVE THIS!!

pos1225@aol.com,

The only time I wax is when I’m finished with all the painting, and generally don’t sand at all. Once in a while I might use a little dark wax but on this piece I painted in the shadows using French Linen.
