Colorful Monday, Coco

Annie Sloan’s line of Chalk Paint® has some fabulous colors and one of her colors that I think is just beautiful, rich and elegant is Coco.  It is still neutral enough to be used in many ways but rich enough to make an elegant statement in any room.

I picked up this gorgeous two tiered secretary that was actually quite beautiful on it’s own but I decided to give it a little facelift.

When working with china hutches and secretaries that have grating in the doors I like to keep them natural wood color.  I think it gives it a unique element and contrast to the piece once it is painted.  These grates can be painted or removed if you don’t like the look.

And here she is all dressed up and ready for a new home.  You can come and see her at the shop Tues-Sun.

    Hi you posted a picture of secretary on Pinterest you painted with Annie Sloan Coco chalk paint, how many coats of paint did you use? And did you use any top coat after painting??

    I have the same secretary. It looks distressed? Is it just solid Coco with clear wax? Also, what is the finish on the interior. It’s beautiful.
