Meet Wendy – Cotton and French Cobblestone Cedar Chest

I love the color Cotton from our new line of Chalk Based Paint coming June 2015. It’s a beautiful grayish white that looks beautiful on pretty much everything (at least in my opinion – I’m not biased at all though). It reminds me of old painted brick walls in Europe. So when one of my friends asked if we could restore a beautiful cedar chest for her mom in this color for mothers day, I was really excited to get started!

In addition to painting the outside with Chalk Based Paint, we also added some Antiquing Powder in the color French Cobblestone. We even filmed a video on how we did it!

We also added these cute little birds along the bottom using a Stencil from Royal Design Studios and the color “Sea Salt” from our new line of Chalk Based Paints.
