Around where I live most people only paint furniture in colors that sell well, white and black. I refuse to limit my paint cabinet to only two colors. Normally I don't even like to recreate something I have already done. At what point do you stop yourself and say.....the last ten dressers I painted where black, maybe it's time to stop.
I think the bristles on my paint brush are permanently dyed blue now.
Both the dresser and small china cabinet are painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White and Napoleonic Blue, finished with clear wax and I did use dark wax on the inside of the small china cabinet to darker the color a bit. I really dislike waxing the inside of china cabinets, so I normally mix mineral spirits in with the wax so I can apply it and then just wipe it off. I let it sit for an hour come back and give it a quick buff.
I left the grill work the natural wood finish, I like it.
This next blue and white painted china cabinet was a beast. I really think I could write an entire blog post on how heavy this thing was. I am just glad it's over.
I painted this one with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White and Napoleonic Blue on the inside, clear wax both inside and out.
The last ten things I painted were not blue and white, I promise.
Anyways, I am working on my master bedroom, and I just finished painting the walls, with Milk Paint, yep Milk paint and I am in love.......more to come.
