Annie painted this rustic step ladder using colours from the Chalk Paint® palette. Annie uses the ladder in her garden as a fun and colourful plant stand.

Using Chalk Paint® in a palette of (from top to bottom) Scandinavian Pink, Olive, Old Ochre, Greek Blue, Provence, Burgundy, Louis Blue and Duck Egg Blue, Annie painted each step with a different colour. The wooden frame has been given a light wash with Pure, leaving it looking rustic and beautiful against the colour of the painted steps and the terracotta plant pots.

When using Chalk Paint® outdoors always finish with Chalk Paint® Lacquer. Our Lacquer is UV protective, so colours won’t fade in the sun, and is water resistant. For more advice on using the paint in your garden, take a look at our FAQs page.
