The Louis Blue, Blues

 

This was one of my first big projects with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. Before I painted it, I was an old fashioned oil-based paint and stain girl. It took me days and days, sometimes weeks to complete projects because I was always waiting for them to dry.  Then there was the issue of the fumes, and the armoire was just too big and heavy to move outside to paint.

So I took the leap and painted it with ASCP  using the colors I had on hand, Old White, Paris Grey, and Louis Blue. Those are the primary colors, but there is also a little Provence, and French Linen.

I posted about this armoire before, when I first started blogging, but it was a really tiny post and it deserves more. I’m also thinking of painting it again, a different color entirely. So this may be the last time you can see it in  French Louis Blue.  New Year, new look, as they say.

Vicki,
Thanks, the big step was painting it the first time. If I don’t like it I can always get it back to LB. Happy Holidays!
Cheers,
Leslie

I hate to see it go. It’s so beautiful as is. What colors are you thinking for it this time?
