Upcycled Old Violet Chest of Drawers

by Felix Sloan

This previously unwanted chest of drawers has been given a new lease of life for Annie’s grandchildren with Chalk Paint® in Old Violet, Cream and Burgundy.

Upcycled chest of drawers painted with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in Old Violet for a children's bedroom

Annie’s son Felix Sloan painted this chest of drawers for his children’s room in Oxford. The chest of drawers was originally made by a friend out of old floorboards, but was no longer wanted. Felix decided to give it a new lease of life by painting it with Chalk Paint® in Old Violet, outlining the edges in Cream. The inside is painted in Burgundy, for just a hint of playful red when left ajar. He then finished it with a coat of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax to protect the paint.

The rest of the room is painted in Chalk Paint® too. The floorboards are painted in Château Grey and lacquered with Matt Chalk Paint® Lacquer for a hardwearing finish. The walls are painted in Old White and the zigzag pattern is in a mix of colours, including Emperor’s Silk, English Yellow and Old White.
