Mixing colors!

I really enjoy mixing the Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan and wanted to share with you my most recent color combo!  I wanted a light grey that wasn’t as blue as Paris Grey and not as dark as French Linen.  So being the clutz that I am the other day I dropped a new can of French Linen on the ground and it busted open!  I quickly picked it and decided that I’d  use this can to play with mixing colors.

I took roughly 40% Pure White, 40% French Linen and 20% Paris and mixed it all together.  i played with the color a bit but think that this is roughly the % mix that I did {much easier to do this is smaller batches:-}.   The end result I love…I ended up painting a beautiful french provincial china cabinet and desk with this color and really adore it.  Both of these pieces are in the shop now at Stifel & Capra so feel free to swing in and take a look at them in person!  If you have mixed the colors I’d love to hear about your experiments!

Beautiful China Cabinet also great for storing books and toys 🙂 $395















I love this desk! $325
