A LITTLE AS PAINT GOES A LONG WAY - red & blue




This is another Emperors Silk Red project I did. Isn't the color amazing, "the knobs made me do it!" With this project I get to show you how far Annie Sloan Chalk Paint can really go.






This little pot of ASCP in Emperors Silk (seen above)
covered this vintage 4 drawer dresser (shown below)

BEFORE                   AFTER

On average I can paint 4 pieces this size with a regular size
 can, but it also depends on your original finish and what
you want to achieve. The colors in the Annie Sloan
 Chalk Paint line are highly pigmented so they can go along way.

********************************************

The original finish did lend it's self to the red so I took that into
 consideration when choosing. I did also paint the
 top but changed my mind and washed it off. 



This one's got some HISTORY
This dresser is probably at least 100 years old. You should see
the construction it's amazing. The story as we were told was it
 spent many years through the middle of the 20 century on
 Campobello Island on the east Coast of Canada. The owner's
uncle was a Canadian senator with a vacation home there and
 was friends with Franklin Delano Roosevelt who often
 visited as the Roosevelts also vacationed on Campobello.


Here is a look at what 1 regular can of
ASCP Provence blue was able to paint.
