Swedish Linen Press

Gently colored in soft pinks and the palest of purples, this Swedish Linen Press is perfect in every way. If you are wanting to paint yours like this one, here’s how to do it. Use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® and paint several light layers of Antoinette, Paloma, and Old White. Feather the edges so there are no strong contrasts of color. Seal with Clear Wax and accent the shadows with Dark Wax. In the end, your linen press will be as stunning as this one.

Antoinette is a lovely sophisticated pink, that can be used in any setting. Some of my most popular posts are about this blush pink, including Country Sideboard, Secretaire Extraordinaire, and  In the Pink. Antoinette color card

Fresco Lime Paint from Pure & Original creates this look with out the work of layering different colors. The lime in the paint creates a variety of shades and tones within one color, much like the Antoinette swatch shown above. It can be used on furniture, walls, anything you would normally use Chalk Paint for. Check out my most recent posts featuring Pure & Original’s Fresco Lime Paint. Here is where I purchase it online www.502paint.com.

This piece is beautiful. Would you say that there is a lot of stippling done for this look at least with the last coat or two?

Good Morning ~ I love this piece, ASCP and your website. Is there any hope that you might do a video demonstrating the technique used to create this look? Those of us that are visual learners would be appreciative!

The outer edges do look like they have been sponged or perhaps frottaged. Just stippled perhaps?
Looking for more details. Thanks
