Dresser in Aubusson Blue Chalk Paint


I found this dresser on Craig's List.  Nine drawers for storage of my painting and crafting supplies is just what I needed.


I used Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Aubusson Blue and Soft Wax as the finish.


The hardware was sprayed with a light coat of Rustoleum's Satin Nickel.






This is the before.  I first painted the dresser with Louis Blue Chalk Paint, but decided that was too light for this dresser.



Love the Aubusson Blue.

Popped over from Metamorphis Monday. What a nice surprise! I love the color! I have not tried any of the chalk paint. Gonna have to for sure! That will make a handy storage piece. Great job!

Mmmm, very pretty. Yes the darker blue looks much better on it. Also I know that dark handles are the rage right now, but I really love the silver on this. Lovely.

Saw your beautiful dresser @ Mustard Seed, great in blue!

Leslie Davis said...

Love this! Really, it's fabulous. I was wondering though, if the true color is darker than your photo. I have the paint swatches from Anne Sloan and the Aubusson blue seems much darker. I'm only asking because I want to order this color but would hope it was darker like the swatch.
