4 years ago or so my life was changed when I first heard the words Annie Sloan. I had experimented for years with products and found flaws in each one because of yellowing, durability, versatility, etc. I played and experimented with just a few tins of Annie Sloan paint and some wax and grew happier and happier trying more complex techniques over the years. It changed the game. Technique could become more complex, the versatility of the product was astounding, it was durable... it solved every issue. But it gets better... because of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® I am able to provide for my family and love my job. I am eternally grateful for what is to come. Meeting Annie Sloan was an absolute pleasure. She is wonderful, generous and so kind, I am excited about the future!
About the Piece:
I received a call from an old friend (and designer to the stars) saying, "I want a 12 foot pew painted plaid". To which I replied "No problem" (gulp).
A ton of research and a few sample boards later I decided to just jump right in and have a little fun with a piece I've had in my stash for a few years. I quickly realized why there are no plaid painted pieces out there!!
This is layered washes, over and under, over and under of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Barcelona Orange, Provence, Aubusson Blue and Pure White with General Finishes Nutmeg stain. This 6 drawer, solid wood mid century modern piece was painted plaid and is in beautiful condition. It measured 54” L x 33” H x 18” D
