Green with a Touch of Blue

Adding a little Aubusson Blue to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Chateau Grey will result in a green with strong blue undertones, as seen on the antique blanket chest above. French Linen and Country Grey for shadows and highlights.




I love this chest and the color you’ve painted it. Did you lay the mixture of Aubusson and chateau gray first then do a wash of the other two colors? It really is beautiful.

Hi Ana, yes. Many times I switch back and forth between a wash and dry just depends what’s working. I can’t remember how I did it on this piece but probably a little of both. I have to work a bit to find ways to use Chateau Grey, it’s just not a go to color for me, but pairing it with Aubusson has really helped. Thanks for asking, Leslie
