…annie sloan cornish blue

I typically do not do custom colors because it’s quiet a process and I am not able to do it with my work load at this time. I did have an interior design client come to me and ask me to do a Cornish Blue bedroom set for her client. I said yes because she brought me a handsome set of pieces!

Annie Sloan has a recipe for Cornish Blue on her site, but as I have found out in the past it still requires experimentation to get the color that suits the client.

I work directly on the piece to test samples because I know that I can cover them easily with the chosen color and also match it as I go along.

The darker colors always take a bit more work. This is what it looked like when I opened the Greek Blue, which is the primary color for Cornish Blue.

Is that purple?

Stir, stir, stir. Cornish Blue is a combination of Greek Blue & Old White.

The client settled on a color and I was so pleased with the result. These pieces will be place in a beach house. Perfect color.

The nightstands were done in Old White.

Don’t be scared to experiment with your own pieces if you are looking for something bold.

  4. the way you do your painting technique is so much smoother and richer looking than everyone else’s. you must have some special touch bc i have seen a lot of repainted furniture and they never compare to your!! its beautiful!
