Armoire bleue

by Ildiko Horvath

Painter in Residence Ildiko Horvath chose a striking, bright blue for this classic French armoire. She brought out the details with softer neutrals and plenty of sanding.

Ornate Blue Armoire by Annie Sloan Painter in Residence Ildiko Horvath painted with Chalk Paint®

First Ildiko focused on the ornate carvings and details, painting them in Chalk Paint® in Graphite. Then she went over the whole piece in Napoleonic Blue knocked back with a little French Linen. She blended the colours together while she worked, using a spray bottle filled with water to keep the paint wet and adding a little Aubusson Blue along the way. A mix of Honfleur and French Linen was painted into the recesses of the door panels.

Ildiko then waxed and sanded to bring out the layers of colour as well as show some of the wood underneath. She finished with a final coat of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax to protect her paint work.
