Beautiful Teal

I have written in the past about how much I love turquoise and all its variations.  Annie Sloan’s Provence is one of my all time favourite colours; I also love her Florence, but it is a very bold blue-green that is probably too strong for most people.  It’s very easy to mix chalk paint and get hundreds of variations both light and dark.  I love the combination of the blues and greens that produce shades of turquoise, teal and peacock.  Leslie Stocker’s excellent blog Colorways shows lots of mixes and I really admire the peacock coloured cabinet that is in this post.    

This Art-Deco dresser was painted in a combination of Annie Sloan Florence and Aubusson.  It produced a green/blue teal.  I have a wall in my kitchen painted in Benjamin Moore Majestic that is almost the identical colour:DSC_0017

I opted to paint the dresser a solid colour without distressing or any other textural detail.  This is unusual for me as I generally like washes or dry-brushing.  I thought I would try something plainer and rely on the glass knobs to add a bit of sparkle to the piece.  The dresser does have nice Art Deco detail on the drawers.
