Alex Russell Flint’s Painterly Bathroom
Painter in Residence Alex Russell Flint breathed new life into his gorgeous French bathroom using Chalk Paint®.
Alex has updated his 19th century zinc bath tub using Chalk Paint® in Primer Red. He then finished the bath tub with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax and a coat of Dark Wax to deepen the intensity of the colour. For a bathtub in frequent use, we suggest using Matt Chalk Paint® Lacquer which is water resistant and perfect for heavy-traffic areas.
The lampshade in the room has also been painted with very diluted Chalk Paint® in Burgundy; the side table has been painted in Primer Red and then finished with Clear Wax. The colours used really tie the rich textures and tones of the room together. Alex’s walls really set off the luscious reds in the room –for a similar look use Duck Egg Blue.
