Week 3 Inspiration: Layering Up

We know the Lower Mainland is in the middle of a heat wave right now, but we'd like to inspire you to layer up and make a statement this week.

We're talking about Chalk Paint of course! The stunning side table above was painted by our very own Chalk Paint™ Specialist Elinor for her home. Not only did she layer up her paint, she layered up several different colours to achieve this final look.

She started with Provence, applying the paint with a thick texture, followed by a dry brushing of Antibes Green and Florence. She then added a wash of Duck Egg followed by clear and dark wax. All those layers came together to create one incredible finish!

Looking for even more layering inspiration? See Annie Sloan's recent blog post where she shares Simon Olsson's technique to get an Indian-inspired boho look through the use of multiple Chalk Paint layers.
