Painter in Residence Beau Ford transformed this dark and damaged sideboard to a bright retro piece suitable for modern family living.
Beau’s neighbour in rural Australia inherited the cupboard from her Grandfather and had been storing it in her shearing shed. Beau cleaned off the cupboard and used Chalk Paint to create a refreshed modern piece.
Beau used a palette of Antibes Green, Duck Egg Blue and Coco to create the base block colours. The mustard yellow is a mix of English Yellow, with a spot of Emperor’s Silk and Coco. The triangle pattern that runs vertically down the front of the cupboard has been hand-painted in Greek Blue using a very small artist’s brush. The whole piece has been finished with Clear Chalk Paint Wax for protection.
