Painter in Residence Beau Ford created this fun, colourful children’s wardrobe using Chalk Paint® in complementary orange and blue.
For this project Beau took a characterless old wooden wardrobe and transformed it in to a fun, colourful statement piece. Chalk Paint® is the perfect way to add colour to a child’s bedroom (or an adult’s!).
The outside of the wardrobe has been painted in a simple mix of Barcelona Orange and Pure, creating a peachy-orange colour. I love the way Beau picked its complementary colour, Provence, to paint the inside of the wardrobe. She stamped spots in Pure on to the surface, starting at the bottom of the wardrobe and radiating out towards the top. She then finished the project with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax to protect the surface.
