I have an old cabinet that I keep in my laundry room to hold my paint and serve as a testing spot when I’m mixing a custom color. You can imagine it starts to look a little wild after a while. It gets a fresh coat of paint about once a year to create a new canvas. When I’m experimenting with colors, a sample on real wood, gives me the best idea of what it will look like on furniture. The side you can’t see gets covered first, and I gradually work my way all around. I had little downtime this week, so I took advantage of it and tried out two of the lovely whites in the Pure & Original color palette; coffee cream, and bone. Classico is a snap to work with because its chalk based and sticks to everything, and requires no wax or sealer. Not a major project, but it shows what you can do in an hour (i skipped the inside this time around), with one coat of paint.
Nothing is out of bounds to paint in my house and be the subject of a blog post. If quick and easy is what you’re looking for, you’ll love these projects: Marrakech Walls on Glass, White Washed Bench and Pretty in Pink
