Striped Chest of Drawers

by Jelena Pticek

Painter in Residence Jelena Pticek brought this old chest of drawers up to date with a contemporary striped effect.

Following the simple lines of the chest of drawers, Jelena used a palette of Chalk Paint® in Graphite, Olive, Duck Egg Blue, French Linen and Antoinette to paint different width of stripes around the piece. The French Linen and Graphite act as neutrals, keeping the colours balanced and working together.

Jelena lightly distressed the moulding on the top drawer and added new ornate lace-detail knobs painted with Chalk Paint® in Antoinette to contrast with the colour and style of the chest. She then sealed the piece with a final coat of Clear Wax.
