I must be in a grey and white mood because all of my most recent projects have been painted French Linen and Old White. 2 of my favorite colors and they go great together.
I needed something to add to my booth at Drab 2 Fab to display some things, and honestly to make my booth a little more appealing. My awesome and amazing friend Kristen gave me some wall shelves that her husband made, and that they weren’t using any more.
To update them a little I painted them French Linen, and then added a whitewash of Old White to give it a weathered look.
I love how the grain in the wood comes through. Then little clear wax and just a hint of dark wax and some new hardware and they were ready to put up. Love the look of these!!
I loved this look so much I used it on my next project!
I just got this large blue milk can and wanted to give it a quick make over. So once again I painted it French Linen and then whitewashed it with Old White.
Once it was painted I distressed it with sandpaper so get down to the blue and then waxed it.
Perfectly weathered “old” milk can!! 🙂
On to my next project.
I have had this lovely bookshelf for a while and was trying to decided what colors to paint it. Hmmm….yup…French Linen and Old White! Can’t go wrong with this combo!
I added a little stencil to the bottom and distressed this to give it some character. I also added a little gold to the feet and along the top and bottom!
Some pieces that I put in my booth to sell are hard to part with, and this is one of them. I really do love this bookshelf! But I’m trying not to be a hoarder so I gotta let some go! 😉 I’m sure I will use this combo of colors again. Let me know what your favorite Annie Sloan paint color combo’s are! I would love some idea’s for my next project!!
Thanks as always for stopping by to take a look 🙂
