Geometric Triangle Sideboard

by Jelena Pticek

Painter in Residence Jelena Pticek transformed an old, heavy-looking sideboard into a wonderfully modern piece, using Chalk Paint® and a handmade cardboard template.

Jelena chose French Linen – a cool neutral, khaki grey from the Chalk Paint® palette – as a neutral background to the bright, rich colours in her geometric pattern.

She then created her triangle template and began to play around with the size to make certain it worked with the scale of the furniture. Using the template, Jelena created the layout of the triangles – outlining each triangle with masking tape.

The new handles Jelena sourced for the sideboard inspired the colour palette for the geometric design. Using a palette of Barcelona Orange, Duck Egg Blue, Antoinette and Scandinavian Pink, she painted inside the marked-out triangles – making sure the four colours were spread out evenly across the sideboard.

She finished the piece with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
