White chalk paint pieces of furniture

A few months ago I got a little confused about what paint I had. I had a tin of a beige colour chalk paint for a custom piece and when I had finished the job I mixed the rest of the tin with a bright white and it made the loveliest soft  white. Fast forward a few months and I needed to buy some soft white paint and I totally forgot that the white I had been using was a mix and not the actual paint I’d bought ...and I went and bought 4 litres of it. When I got home and opened it all I could not believe I had bought 4 litres of BEIGE paint. Far out....

So I’ll be mixing paint to get the soft white colour I like for a long time.

Anyway .... as you can imagine I am using the mix on lots and lots of pieces. I have these pieces available . These French style drawers which are so lovely. They would work well as a console table or large bedside table also.

I also have these vintage Australian cedar bedside tables. They are very solid and in great shape. The drawer interiors have been painted in an aqua satin enamel. I actually can’t believe these haven’t been snapped up as they are GORGEOUS and usually in high demand.

And finally this vintage French desk I painted for a customer. I loved working on this special piece. My photo certainly doesn’t do it justice. The tope was leather and there are two slide out panels for extra working space each end. My customer was so happy with it.

Hope you love the colour as you’ll be seeing so much more of it :)
