Geometric Sideboard

by Beau Ford

Painter in Residence Beau Ford used vibrant colours from the Chalk Paint® palette to create a fun and contemporary one-of-a-kind piece.

Geometric Square Sideboard by Annie Sloan Painter in Residence Beau Ford painted with Chalk Paint® in Burgundy, Arles and Provence

Beau chose a vibrant colour palette of Chalk Paint® in Burgundy, Arles, Provence and Emperor’s Silk and used a very simple technique to transform a dull sideboard in to an eye-catching piece of art.

To begin the transformation Beau created areas of colour, somewhat like a camouflage pattern, using Arles, Provence and Emperor’s Silk. Once this first coat of paint was dry Beau used square stickers to mask off sections that she would later peel off to reveal the first coat of paint. Beau painted over the top of the stickers with Burgundy. Once the paint had dried Beau gently removed the stickers to reveal the squares of Provence, Arles and Emperor’s Silk.

To finish the piece she used Arles to highlight the legs and drawer handles, gave it all a very light sanding, and sealed the piece with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
