A dear friend of mine is giving herself a beautiful home office. She has switched some rooms around and is making a space that is absolutely bold and beautiful, just like her! She had a solid hutch that she wanted painted, it's going to be her pop of color in the new office. We settled on Annie Sloan's ANTIBES GREEN.....
It is a beautiful piece of furniture. Solid, well built and has some really great storage. It was a lovely piece to paint!
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, ANTIBES GREEN, Annie Sloan lacquer and Annie Sloan Clear Wax.
The hutch was originally intentionally distressed. It had manufactured worm holes, gouges and was made to look old. She wanted the new look to be shiny and crisp, no sanded edges or distressing the paint. This piece took four coats of paint (I watered down each coat, I wanted it smooth!) two coats of Annie Sloan Lacquer and one coat of Clear Wax. I can't wait to see this beauty in her new office space! I hope this has inspired you to paint something....maybe something bright and bold!
