Annie Sloan • Paint & Colour ---The linen chest started life as an orange-toned, shiny piece of furniture and looked outdated in the modern home. Beau painted the chest in Provence to create a base colour, and then mixed Greek Blue, Antibes and Olive with varying amounts of water. Beau painted these colours on to the side of the chest and allowed the paint to drip down the surface. Once the paint had dried Beau applied my Soft Clear Wax to protect the surface.
