This was another commissioned piece. The client requested gray ~ so obviously I went with Chalk Paint. However, I wanted to try a new 'gray' rather than Paris Gray, so I had ordered Paloma… thinking it would be a nice break in my routine.
Uhm… not so much. Has anyone tried Paloma? Maybe it was just my can but it was turning out all pinkish/lavenderish. Eww.
So I did what any determined painter would do, I added a big dollop of graphite to the Paloma and this is the color I got. And I like it! Phew.
Here is the before:
It is a reproduction piece, so don't panic. I didn't go & paint an old antique :)
I thought it needed a little something extra, so I added this wood piece to the back. I love the look it gave it.
thanks for stopping by!
