Oxford Toile Desk

by Joanna Lloyd

This simple bureau was given a stylish update using Chalk Paint® in Pure and Oxford Navy, and the Oxford Toile decoupage paper from Issue 4 of The Colourist.

This Toile Desk was upcycled using the Oxford-inspired Toile which was designed for Issue 4 of The Colourist. Wittily parodying the pastoral scenes of traditional Toile-de-Jouy designs, our senior designer Joanna Lloyd used famous local landmarks from the home of Chalk Paint® (Annie’s factory in Oxford manufactures and distributes Chalk Paint® worldwide) on this decoupage paper pull out, included free inside every copy of The Colourist Issue 4.

For this project, you will need:

• The free exclusive Oxford Toile paper from The Colourist Issue 4
• 1 x litre Chalk Paint® in Pure
• 1 x 120ml Chalk Paint® in Oxford Navy
• 1 x 500ml Clear Chalk Paint® Wax
• 1 x Image Medium
• 1 x Small Flat Brush
• 1 x Annie Sloan Detail Brush Set
• Ruler
• Scissors

To channel this smart and stylish bureau update, use a Small Flat Brush to paint your furniture with Chalk Paint® in Pure. The Small Flat Brush will help achieve a clean and smooth finish. Choose an area to pick out with Oxford Navy – Joanna used a Large Flat Detail Brush to do so most neatly.

Measure the area to be covered and trim your Oxford Toile to fit. Then apply a coat of Annie Sloan Image Medium where you will place your Toile. Lay the decoupage paper over the slightly sticky surface, press firmly and smooth from the centre outwards (tip: dampen the toile slightly using a sponge to minimise creases and folding). Apply another coat of Image Medium or Chalk Paint® Lacquer to seal the paper. Finish by protecting the rest of the desk with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax, using a lint-free cloth to remove excess Wax.
