Remember This?

I had worked so hard on it,  I put Annie Sloans Duck Egg and Louis Blue on it and distressed it then waxed it with clear and dark wax... I wrote about it here.

Someone bought it Hooray!!  AND now it looks like this.................

Before that, it looked like this.below..........Because they didn't want any of that blue/green showing through their pretty yellow........sand sand and more sanding....grateful that it was chalk paint.  I did make my own Yellow Chalk Paint though, because they had bought two other pieces from the shop that had been painted yellow so this was to match.

Mixing the plaster of paris into the paint worked surprisingly well.

So dear readers I ask you which do you prefer?  I know which one I like better let me know what you think.




Have a great week,


  1. I prefer the blue-green but they are both quite lovely and well done!


  2. I like the blue green better, but guess they prefer yellow.

  3. Looks beautiful in both ways, but I prefer blue-green.

  4. I prefer the blue/green. The customer's always right though. :)

  5. The aqua blue is better hands down! But to each his own, right?

  6. I like the yellow look...but that's cuz it just seems more French-looking what with that being a very southern France color. But the real determining factor is what the customer wants :-)
