Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Kitchen Cabinets
COLORWAYS Opposites on the color wheel (Blue and Orange) not only attract but are stunning when paired together. This old pine pie safe, notice the vents for cooling, is a perfect example. Mix and layer a little Emperor's Silk with Barcelona Orange over Greek Blue. Old White lightens each of the colors and is dabbed on for texture and highlights. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint makes this an incredibly easy technique for a vintage, distressed style.
paint the entire piece anchor grey and then silver leaf the raised areas, touch up all the silver leaf boo-boos, then hit it with some antiquing glaze and clear wax to seal it. Wait 1-3 hours until it's tacky, then apply the silver leaf, let that dry over night and then use a dark glaze to age the piece, it makes all the difference in the world !!
