Pretty Pastel Shelves

by Agnieszka Krawcyzk

For this project, Painter in Residence Agnieszka Krawcyzk chose soft, pastel colours from the Chalk Paint® palette to create a delicate and romantic, vintage look.

Agnieszka began by painting the shelves in Chalk Paint® in Paris Grey with a Chalk Paint® Brush, and once dry applied a later of French Linen. She then removed areas of paint using sandpaper and a scraper, revealing the paint and wood below.

To create contrast and depth, Agnieszka left the inside of the piece predominantly in French Linen, but continued to work on the exterior surface – applying a coat of Old White, distressing again with sandpaper, and finishing with a top layer of Antoinette. Agnieszka chipped and sanded the edges and corners of the piece even further, revealing the built up layers of paint.

She completed the piece with a Clear Chalk Paint® Wax and a dash of Dark Wax to bring out the texture.
