Sophisticated Neutral

This beautiful antique French buffet is the inspiration for the color palette today. A neutral that is not quite khaki, not quite grey and yet is a combination of them all. Using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, start with French Linen and add highlights and shadows with Paris Grey, Country Grey, and Old White. Accent with a touch of gilding wax.



This is gorgeous! The colors are a perfect fit for the piece. I’m inspired to try your technique, and excited that you are going to share more about you achieve this look in a future post.


Hi Leslie, I’d love the color of this piece and would like to replicate it for my dining room hutch. Can you tell me how you used the color combination you listed above? Which was your base coat and how did you use the other colors? Thanks!
