On this table I tried out a little tip about colour I got from Annie Sloan last week.
Sometimes it’s good to use colours which are next to each other on the colour wheel (see today’s earlier post on Facebook). For example with this table I painted Annie Sloan Chateau Grey then used French Linen for some areas with a little bit of layering as well.
The combination of these colours help break the piece up a little visually and creates more interest for the eye – as well as being more true to an original vintage look, which is hardly ever just a flat colour on older pieces of furniture.
The top is another technique altogether, I used Annie Sloan Original in a very watered down mix to create a wash. This has really helped show off the lovely old grain of the wood. After it had dried I used Annie Sloan Clear Wax to protect.
