I’m close to finishing the Rope Trim dresser that I shared on Monday. I’m using a new combo (to me) of Annie Sloan paint colors, Giverny and Paris Grey.
Here is a sneak peek!
Full post next week!

This is such a pretty combination! You know I am loving the layering technique you’ve used already 🙂 I can’t wait to see the full reveal. Hugs for the best day, Coco
CoCo! So great to hear from you! I hope your year has started out well 🙂 Cheers and I look forward to sharing next week!
I am loving what I can see so far. Can’t wait to see how you did it.
I have to tell you, you are a great teacher to us less talented.. I make it a point to not miss any of you posts. Just love everything you do. Take care.
Thank you so much, Peggy! You are so kind!
I’m looking forward to seeing the full post. The Giverny looks so much softer than I had thought it would (in photos as I haven’t seen it in person). It must be the Paris Grey toning it down. I wonder if you painted the whole piece first in Paris Grey and then the Giverny. The gilding and distressing are great. It looks lovely and quite “polished.”
Hi Louise, Yes, the Giverny by itself was very bold. I used the Paris Grey to tone it down and soften the look. I’ll share soon! Thanks!
You have a great eye and are inventive in your use of multiple colors/finishes. I’m intrigued by the crackle effect you have here and look forward to the reveal. BTW, I looked at the “creamy in white” secretary/cabinet you did which elicited some comments from those who think old brown furniture should be left intact. I occasionally agree with that – especially if the wood grain is beautiful and worth preserving. Mostly it isn’t. I think you did one in which you left a single drawer in the original wood and the rest painted. The “creamy in white” came out spectacularly well, highlighting the details and coordinating well with the wavy glass.
Hi Nette, I agree that some furniture should be left alone to age gracefully. I hate to see beautiful flamed or burled wood painted over. That being said, I’ve found that paint can always enhance a piece that actually needs a change! I’d say that all of my pieces I dig up do need a change lol! I just finished the Giverny dresser and am thrilled with it. I’ll share soon!
I’ve been checking back everyday looking for the full post. I love the color and always enjoy your tutorials and painted pieces. I have a smaller secretary desk that I think your custom color and gold would look great on. Thanks so much for what you do and keep ’em coming!
Hi Melanie! I will reveal it on Wednesday 🙂 It is a beautiful combo of colors and thanks so much!
