Boho Distressed Cabinet

by Simon Olsson

Painter in Residence Simon Olsson chose Chalk Paint® in Provence as the perfect colour to give this dark old cabinet a bright, new look.

When Simon Olsson first came across this cabinet, he wanted to lighten the dark wood and yet still keep it close to its Indian roots – and so Provence was the perfect colour choice.

To create texture he used a Chalk Paint® Brush, moving in all directions and applying the paint thickly. When the paint had dried he used coarse sandpaper to chip away at the paint work, creating that beautiful worn away patina. To finish the look, he sealed the whole piece with a light coat of clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
