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:
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.
