Never ceases to amaze me...

I swear, Chalk Paint™ never ceases to amaze me. Here's a shot from an interior design project I was working on. The client had a red cabinet with gold accents that she really wanted to a repurpose.

I agreed. But the new design scheme was softer... creams, blues, and neutrals. I decided to paint it with  Duck Egg Chalk Paint™.

I really questioned how it was going to turn out and if the gold design would show through. But I grabbed the paint and went to it anyway.

Not only did the gold pattern not show through, the paint covered in one coat! I then sealed it in Annie's clear wax followed by the dark. I even allowed some of the red to show through slightly in areas to add some interest. It turned out amazing! I think it literally took me only an hour. It was hot that day so the paint dried almost instantly. I waxed it right away and took it inside. Done.
