Mixing Colours

I love these rustic pieces.  They have very simple lines but they make a great statement in your home.

One of my favourite things is when I get to mix my paints to make custom colours.  Using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I mixed Napoleonic Blue and Barcelona to make this great navy colour.  The teal is a mixture of Graphite, French Linen, Provence and Arles. Both colours were waxed using a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of clear and dark wax.

I wanted to leave a lot of the pine showing, so the frames of the doors were left in their original unpainted condition.  I also added pine backing to the entire piece and dark waxed the pine.

I had so much fun doing this piece!
