This first demilune is the typical and my favorite shabby chic style. It's done in Annie Sloan's Old White Chalk Paint which is the perfect color. It goes with anything and the piece itself can fit in just about anywhere and in any room. Although I typically use clear and dark wax, this time I just used the clear. This has been distressed which really shows off the detail on this piece.
The other demilune is so sweet and as above, will fit in anywhere. It's a custom mixed color using Annie Sloan's Henrietta and a bit of Emile (both in the purple family cuz y'all ought to know by now, I LOVE purple). The stenciling is done in Old White and these colors and stencils were used both on the demilune as well as an upcycled cabinet door frame made into a chalkboard. How cool is that to have a matching set? They were finished with clear wax.

I knew I was behind, just didn't know that it was this far behind! Yikes where does the time go?
The pictures below are from three projects I completed toward the end of April. Hope you like em'!
Leather top orange table, Yellow drum table, and a Duck Egg Blue washstand.
The orange table is the first time that I used the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint color Barcelona Orange. It's such a bold color and I didn't want it on just any piece. It has a coat of clear and then dark wax to tone it down some. This vintage leather top table was a perfect candidate for this. I knew I wanted to leave the brown leather top as is, other than applying some clear and dark waxes to make sure it's protected from daily use. I love how it has the gold embossed border around the edges. So cool!
The next piece was a drum style table and this too was the first time I used another new color in the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint collection. It's Arles which is a golden yellow. I also used some of Annie's Country Grey which is actually more like a deep cream color. The two colors paired well together. This was finished with a coat of clear wax and then dark.
The last piece I did was an adorable little washstand done in Annie's Duck Egg Blue and Old White. I used a new stencil I love on the top and on the shelf below done in Old White. I think it turned out amazing and I can just see some pretty hand towels hanging on this sides along with a pitcher and basin to complete the look. This was also finished with clear and dark wax.
