Barcelona Orange Sunset Drawers
by Annie Sloan
These drawers were given a modern, stylised sunset twist by Annie Sloan with Chalk Paint™ in Antoinette and Barcelona Orange.
First, Annie painted the cabinet all over with Chalk Paint™ in Antoinette and waited until dry. The Barcelona Orange arc was created using a pencil tied to string. Attach one end of the string to something static towards the bottom corner of the piece. Keeping the string taut, use the pencil to draw the outside line of a circle. Ratios are key here; for this modern look, Annie’s arc was created from a circle larger than the cabinet itself. Fill in the arc with Barcelona Orange and once dry, finish with Clear Chalk Paint™ Wax.
