Black - No
As much as I loved the inspiration photo, and so badly wanted it to work
I decided black would be too dark and heavy for my space.
White - No
As much as I love the neutral monochromatic look I decided
I wanted something a little different.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - French Linen - YES!!
As much as I love sanding and priming (not!) I decided this was the
perfect piece to try ASCP, the idea of no sanding and priming won out!
French Linen is described as a cool neutral khaki grey that works beautifully with golds.
Once I decided on the color I couldn't wait to get started...
(if you missed the before check it out here)
One coat down...
I took of photo of the gold accents before painting over them to get an idea of how
it would look, and I love it. Not sure if I should distress it a bit?
Give it some gold highlights, but where ? Add another color for some depth?
A clear wax will go over all of it to soften the chalkiness and give it a pretty finish.
Remember I have the doors, too.
Imagining it decked out with some holiday decor is motivating me to keep at it!
If you've worked with ASCP any and all tips are appreciated since
I'm winging it! :)
