Before I start this post, I will tell you we worked on this vintage day bed a few months back before I ever thought of starting a blog so the photos are pretty rough and were done just for my records. I purchased this vintage day bed at an auction and it was in pretty bad shape. I had just taken an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint workshop and I wanted to try out the paint. My husband painted the bed with Provence Blue ASCP. Well, we had a slight problem The colors bled through from the mahogany. The workshop instructor assured us that the paint would cover anything and would adhere to just about any surface.
The paint colors and the finish give such a vintage feel to anything I have ever painted with it. My favorite color is the old white. It is the perfect vintage white, not too yellow, not too gray and certainly not glaring new white like so much of the whites are these days. My only reservation about it is the cost. So I use it on pieces that are truly vintage and worth receiving a totally new look. I wish it was more reasonably priced, but whenever I buy regular paint in the cans these days, the prices give me sticker shock. Of course, I try to purchase better quality paint so that my pieces will have lasting quality. I always hope they will get another 50 years of service as the older furniture is made so much better with better quality materials. I think they deserve the proper makeover.
