Distressed Lem Lem Chest of Drawers
by Annie Sloan
This chest of drawers was painted first with a coat of Primer Red and then in Lem Lem, a soft warm green inspired by the colour of allium fields in Ethiopia.
Annie Sloan painted this chest of drawers in Lem Lem, showcasing the soft warm green in a rustic setting. Lem Lem is a colour inspired by Annie’s trip to Ethiopia with Oxfam in Spring 2017.
The chest of drawers was painted with a thick coat of Primer Red first, and then Lem Lem. Annie then applied Clear Chalk Paint Wax and sanded back heavily to reveal some of the red underneath. Dark Chalk Paint Wax gives an antique look and a final coat of Clear Wax seals everything in.
