Secretaire Extraordinaire

Much of my time this week was focused on my new website. As a result projects and painting dropped a notch on my to do list. Fortunately, inspiration is only a click away on Pinterest. This antique secretary (source) is extraordinary! To achieve a similar look on yours, use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. Antoinette painted as your first and dominant color. Add Paris Grey and Coco for shadowing and depth around the frame and drawer edges. Old White for highlights. Perfect, in a home or a palace!

A secretary can be a statement piece as well as a practical desk, especially in double duty rooms and small spaces. If you missed these other posts on paint colors for secretaries, see,  Secretary Preview,  French Secretary, and  Going Green

Leslie,
When you shadow and highlight with alternate colors do you do so when the former layer of paint is still wet?
Thank you.
