It’s a Military Blue

Originally, the plan was to paint this chest of drawers in various shades of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®, Napoleonic Blue. Although I like the blue, it is looking a little bland to me. It needs something more, I’m not sure what exactly. Possibly additional color, or maybe some art or a stencil…. Stay tuned…On Monday I will be back with the next version. And you can decide if you like the results. 

Have a lovely weekend,



I’m SO excited about this post! I have a chest of drawers near in color (though not in shape) to yours. I’ve been thinking of painting it blue, but really struggling with which blue. I’m very much looking forward to watching yours evolve. Thank you!


Wow. It’s remarkable how modern that treatment makes the chest appear, and the colors in the stripe are lovely. I think I want to go for a slightly darker and more aged treatment because my chest is going into a room with my grandmother’s antique white iron bed. Still looking for inspiration but the image that keeps calling to me is here:

Love your blog. I look forward to every post!
