Art Deco Wardrobe
by Jeanie Simpson
Painter in Residence Jeanie Simpson painted this oak veneer wardrobe in an Art Deco style with light, feminine and modern touches.
Painter in Residence Jeanie Simpson transformed this imposing, dark oak veneer wardrobe into a light, feminine master piece with Art Deco design flourishes and lines.
Before starting the project, Jeanie created different designs and sketches. Once she had decided on a pattern, she used painter’s tape and a pencil to map out her design onto the wardrobe.
The base of the wardrobe is painted with Chalk Paint in Pure to create a blank canvas. The lines and designs are painted with Emile, Paloma and Coco, and the whole piece is finished with Clear Chalk Paint Wax. Once waxed all over, Jeanie gilded the fluted beading on the handles, door edge and feet with the Annie Sloan Gilding Wax in Warm Gold.
