Jeanie began by researching designs from the period to create a look in-keeping with the style of the piece.

Jeanie painted the desk first with Chalk Paint® in Graphite to act as a dark, blank canvas and drew her dramatic design on top with pencil. Using Annie Sloan Detail Brushes and painter’s tape, Jeannie painted the design using Chalk Paint® in Old White and Florence, mixed with a dash of English Yellow.

Over the Art Deco design, Jeanie used a diluted wash of Olive, English Yellow and Old White to give an oxidised-copper look. Once dry she took sand paper to the piece to distress it slightly.

The piece was finished in all colours of Chalk Paint Wax® by Annie Sloan; first a coat of Clear Wax was used, then Dark Wax on the green sections of the bureau, followed by a mix of White and Black Wax on the darker grey sections. The whole piece was the finished again in Clear Wax to protect it.
