Blue and Hepplewhite. A Classic Combination.

Blue with hepplewhite 4 at MarthaLeoneDesign

After taking a necessary break from painting and sharing my work on this blog, I'm starting up again. I'll write a bit about my family's recent move in another post and share lots of before/after shots of our house. For now, here are a couple of night stands.

This blue is an amazing color. The choice was made because I wanted to contrast the cool blue against the warmth of the raw wood underneath. Two toned pieces are some of my favorites when I'm giving a piece a traditional treatment. The night stands remind me of the first dresser I painted when I started my business.

The white specs come from the plaster of paris I mixed into the latex paint. Even after lots of sanding, those white specs still show up... a texture that I personally like.

Disadvantage of homemade chalk paint While homemade chalk paint is inexpensive and adheres to furniture like Annie Sloan and other chalk paints, I can't get the same smooth finish with homemade chalk mixes. So, although I save money, I spend more time sanding the painted surface.
