Duck Egg Blue Inspiration I have a few very favorite Annie Sloan Colors and Duck Egg remains in my top two! Here is some Duck Egg Blue inspiration that I collected from Pinterest. So lovely! I’ve included an Annie Sloan Color Gallery at the end of the post for you to peruse. So many to choose from! Have a great Saturday!
A Bedroom Set Before and After I am out today thrifting and hoping to find a few good pieces to transform. Honestly, they are becoming few and far between. I would love to find something along the lines of this bedroom set that I worked on last year. I used Annie Sloan Duck Egg with gold highlights. I’m sharing this project again for those that may have not seen it! Wish me luck today at the stores and I hope to find a great piece to transform!
Here is a double reveal 🙂 I painted over my stenciled foyer because, well, I just got really tired of it. It was starting to hurt my head when I walked down the stairs (okay that is an exaggeration but it was bothering me). I decided on the 2017 Sherwin Williams Color of the Year, Poised Taupe. I am SO happy with it! I just painted my living room in Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige and this really looks fabulous next to it.
The Countdown continues! Yesterday was Number 10/MCM Dresser, Number 9/Goopy Dresser and Number 8/Vintage Wardrobe. Let’s begin!
What a beautiful piece this was to work on. A gorgeous, Drexel Heritage Triune dresser in great condition that I finished in General Finishes milk paint. I chose Lamp Black – a classic color for a traditional, classic piece. It also coordinated well with the original brass hardware that maintains its vintage feel but looks sharp against the black.
I just finished the bedroom set that I have been working on for weeks! The little bedside table is the last piece to get its makeover in Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue.
Before, the table was dark and drab.
It’s now light and bright!
This piece had two coats of one part Duck Egg to one part Old White applied as a base. Then, a very light coat of pure Duck Egg was applied as a final coat. The detail was highlighted in Martha Stewart gold and distressed to make it pop. It was sealed in Annie Sloan clear wax.
A quick post that is very late getting out today! I only just finished this piece and took a few quick pics to share with you all.
Before:The technique is the exact same as I described in yesterday’s post – A Vintage Dresser in Duck Egg Blue.
Enjoy the yummy detail!
Yesterday’s favorite find is finished!
Here is the before and you can see that it was in great condition but dark and drab. My client wanted a pale blue with green undertones and gold highlights – yum!Here is the after!I used Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue to achieve this finish. This was quite the process so here goes!
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who commented yesterday on my rather long “vent” post. I really cannot express how much it meant to me and how you really gave me a boost when I really needed it. The fact that you took time out of your day to write me is incredible. I read each comment carefully and was amazed at what you had to say. Such fantastic advice, help and inspiration. Thank you!!!
Today’s post is a flash from the past! I’m sharing two pieces that were both done in the early stages of my business and never really had their chance to shine in the spotlight. I don’t have the “before” pics of either – sorry! This was in the beginning days and my blog was just getting off the ground.
