Interior designer Lucy Tiffney’s unique painterly style has seen her create wallpapers of bold, exotic design. For Annie’s Bookazine, The Colourist, Lucy translated her pattern repeats into a bold, graphic painted design on a chest of drawers, using Chalk Paint® and Detail Brushes!

Botanical Chest of Drawers painted by Lucy Tiffney for The Colourist Issue 1 with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan step 1 and 2

First, Lucy painted the chest in a mix of Chalk Paint® in Graphite and Aubusson Blue. She then used Detail Brushes and Chalk Paint® in a bright palette of Antibes Green, Emperor’s Silk, Old Ochre, Barcelona Orange, Scandinavian Pink, Henrietta and Provence to add her floral designs. She also mixed many of these colours together to create the perfect shade for her piece. Her inspiration was drawn from her wallpaper designs; examples of which you can see hanging behind this piece.

Lucy sanded the paint back to create a distressed look and then finished the piece with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax to seal in all that beautiful work.
