As you can see the wood on it was very dark so I knew right away that I wanted to lighten it up.
This cabinet door was my inspiration. It was painted by Barb of Annie Sloan Unfolded. I knew I really wanted to create a look similar to this and that I’d need a piece with lots of detail to make it happen.
First I painted the entire piece with ASCP Scandinavian Pink. It’s bright and I was a little skeptical after applying it but I kept on keepin’ on….
Next I painted over the pink with ASCP County Grey.
Ahhh now I feel better.
I did two coats of Country Grey in some areas and just one in others. I knew I was going to distress it so this process was pretty random.
And then I started distressing. Oh this is where the magic started to happen. I almost couldn’t stop myself. These two colors just blended together so nicely.
I then used a cloth to wipe the piece down, making sure to remove all the dust particles and then sealed with ASCP clear soft wax.
I couldn’t be more pleased with the end result. I think using two colors is a great way to add dimension to a piece and create a little happy drama.
This piece is sold but if you are interested in seeing my other items for sale hop over to my Facebook page and take a look here.
