my last shot at duck egg blue


I really thought I was going to love this color, but… well, I haven't.  It is too green for me, I think.  Too something, one way or another.

I gave it another try on this dresser.  It's ok.

Before…


During… after we fixed the wonky drawers.


And after…





When I finished this piece, I started fooling with the duck egg blue.  I added some graphite & some old white and I'm loving the results.  Pictures to come!

thanks!

  2. Looks good Kathie. I don't find duck egg blue to be greenish at all. Then again, I have a lot of blue accessories around it in different variations of blue. I also use only the clear wax not anything with a tint. Your piece looks good though!

  4. Well the good thing about chalk paint is that it's fun to play with. Can't wait to see what color you've created!
