Dreaming in Paris

By Courtney Cole, Owner at Twig & Thyme Design in Sterling, VA.

This vintage 70’s armoire was dingy and dated and was crying for the glamorous makeover she deserved! 

Inspired by a visit to Versailles, we hand painted her in several coats of Annie Sloan Paris Grey Chalk Paint, carefully sanding between for smoothness. We then sealed her in Annie Sloan Clear Wax and applied Dark Wax to her details for that perfect aged charm. Gold gilding is focal on this piece, hand applied to highlight all of the edges and gorgeous floral details as well as brighten up the dull hardware.
