I go through phases with Annie Sloan paint. Sometimes I'm into the neutrals - Old White, Pure, French Linen, maybe a little Chateau Grey. Lately though, I'm getting a kick out of experimenting with color. Specifically Antibes for my most recent project.
Here is the before shot -
And after -
Don't mind the little brown dogs in this shot. The one right next to the stool never misses a photo op.
The base layer is old white. I happened to have a little Duck Egg left so I painted that in the areas that I know will become more worn and also a few inches worth at the bottom of each leg for a "dipped in paint" look. The top layer is Antibes, of course. I heavily sanded in a few areas and then finished with clear wax.
I love how the green looks with our Sea Salt walls and off-white cabinets and furniture.
This green can appear quite bright. I might try mixing in a little Aubusson next time I use it to darken it up. Please share pictures of your pieces painted with Antibes!
We made this simple stool, by the way. Inspiration and starting point for plans found at Ana White via Pinterest.
