Shades of Autumn


Shades of Autumn



Autumn colors make for striking palettes of red, orange and yellow. Use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® for a bright, distinctive color group on your vintage dresser. Paint the frame Barcelona Orange, the drawers Arles, and add a pop of color with Emperor’s Silk pin striping. Layering isn’t necessary for this finish. Seal with clear wax and add dark wax for character.

Barcelona Orange is a strong vibrant color. For more ideas on colors to use in combination, see Doors from Italy, Bright Colors, and Barcelona Orange Color Palette. Or you can click on Barcelona Orange in the Color Palette to see all my posts where it is featured.

Hi Theresa,
I would love to know if there is a particular color or technique that you are interested in that I haven’t featured. I’m always looking for new ideas. Thanks.
