Gustavian Bedside Chest


Gustavian Bedside Chest


At first glance this Gustavian bedside chest of drawers looks simply white. But upon closer inspection the pastel blues and greens emerge. You can get a similar finish by layering Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. Start with a solid coat of Old White and lightly paint touches of Louis Blue and Duck Egg Blue. Seal with clear wax and lightly distress.  A charming addition to any bedroom.

Swedish style furniture is a particular favorite of mine. For more Gustavian inspiration see my posts,  Swedish Gustavian Chest,   Swedish Country Style,  and  Country Blue Wardrobe



I have a chest which had been painted duck egg. Do you think if I put a thin coat of Old White over it that I could get a similar effect?
