There is so much cool stuff in the works that I just can’t wait to tell…but I have to.
Here are some things I can share…
Isn’t the color fabulous? It’s Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue
I started working with Annie Sloan Chalk Paints a few weeks ago and I really love it.
This is what I started with and I have re-ordered twice since. The colors are great and the texture and finish is amazing. I am so happy that I tried this product because it really solved a lot of problems I had with standard latex paints.
I really have two main styles that I focus on and those are mid-century and french styles. I am not a purist or traditionalist in either style. I am constantly stepping out of the box with color choices and redesign techniques.
I wanted this piece to be kind of risque or sex in the city-ish. Traditional and avant garde colliding. I envision it in a dining room with heavy, silk damask drapes and sexy low lighting.
The next piece is a Heywood Wakefield ReDesign…
painted in Annie Sloan Graphite and finished with clear wax, I was able to buff the finish to a super smooth hard finish.
I doubt that I’m the only one that has used this paint for modern pieces, but I will say that it is well suited for it since the paint is fast drying and you have the ability to buff the wax to a super hard finish.
I am working on a Bernhardt Sideboard, Gun Case, French Arm Chair and Dresser this week. Along with all the other new changes in the works…its going to be a busy week.
Good Luck Junkin’
