I am almost out of paint colors to highlight so I thought to share my favorite paint color combos! One of my all time favorite pairings is Annie Sloan French Linen and Old White. Old White really pops off the darker French Linen and highlights the details of a piece beautifully.
One of my favorite examples of this is the French Country Sideboard. I painted it all in white and then a few coats of the grey on top.
Another great example is the detail on the French bombe chest. The French Linen does not have the white underneath it and so is more true to the color. The lighting in the photos also changed the hue slightly. They are both French Linen (really!).
The white really pops on this one too.Annie Sloan French Linen and Old White – quite the pair!
They ARE a very nice pairing of colors!
Have a suggestion for another blog: Tell of a funny, unusual, awesome or crazy furniture “find” experience and have your readers submit one in response. Probably everyone has a great story to tell………
That is a great idea and I certainly have a few to share! Thanks so much!
Love the piece… Did you use clear and dark wax or just clear? I have a vintage dress that I just bought at a second hand store and want to do the same technique.
Thanks, Nelia – I used clear and dark (Maison Blanche dark brown) on this piece. All over clear and then just parts in the dark that I wanted to highlight.
