My first 2 Painter in Residence projects have been released via Annie Sloan's blog! I have had a great response to both pieces. Here are the before & after shots - as we all love those!
So this console was dated and too shiny for my liking! I used Provence, Greek Blue & Pure White to create the ombré effect and those shades again on top for the Moroccan tile-effect pattern. The piece was waxed for protection, an aged effect and a beautiful subtle finish.
For my children's wardrobe, I mixed a cute soft peach using Barcelona Orange & Pure White, then created a random spotty pattern using mainly a cork and pencil tip to print (then neatening up with a fine brush) in Pure White. The inside is painted in Provence which is a stunning contrast to the orange tones.
Thanks to everyone who has been so kind with the reveals, its full-on painting with so many people ready to comment and judge your style - its all been really lovely though!
2 down, 4 to go...watch this space :)
