Rustic Chest of Drawers

by Ildiko Horvath

Painter in Residence Ildiko Horvath used a pallet knife to heavily distress this chest of drawers painted with Chalk Paint®.

Distressed RusticChest of Drawers by Annie Sloan Painter in Residence Ildiko Horvath painted with Chalk Paint® in Duck Egg Blue

Ildiko painted this chest of drawers in layers of Chalk Paint®, which she then scraped back with a pallet knife to create a rustic effect. The main colour is Duck Egg Blue, but look closely and you can spot a little Paris Grey, Arles and Primer Red, too. Stripping back the paint reveals layers of colours and the texture of wood.

Ildiko picked out details like the mouldings in Old White. The whole thing was finished with Clear and Dark Chalk Paint® Wax for added depth.
