This is a piece I painted before our holiday. It was a curbside "purchase". The best kind, lol! It's a nice solid wood French provincial table.
And here it is all done:
I painted the table with Paris Grey and the edge and the wood accents on either side with Old White, a little distressing, followed by clear and dark wax. A beautiful, easy transformation.
Speaking of Paris Grey, when I was in Paris, I saw first hand why Annie Sloan was inspired to call that colour after the city of lights.
I found it on a door at the Palais de Versailles.
On this gorgeous column at the Opéra Garnier.
However, the most spectacular example of this grey was in a room, also at the Musée d'Orsay, called "Salles des Fêtes" (Festivity Room). This is a source photo, as we were not allowed to take pics. You can't quite tell, but it's exactly the same as Paris Grey. This room was jaw dropping. You can book parties in there. Can you imagine?
