Beginner's Guide To Chalk Paint

In our new extension, we have an alcove, which was crying out to be an office area. We designed a bespoke desk and oak shelving to fit the space perfectly......


but it definitely needed a bit of Modern Country Styling....



I've only recently discovered Autentico Paints, which come in a range of more than 130 colours. Just take a look at this palette....


Aren't those shades beautiful?
There's a grey to suit every mood...


Inspired by this view outside our window, I picked out Nearly Black, a very dark charcoal, for the desk. The Autentico Chalk Paint can be left with its lid off to thicken up, for a textured, aged feel...


 ...or can be layered for a super-smooth finish.


Coming up on Friday.....

Love the color and can't wait to see your finished alcove! That is a similar color to what I painted our garden shed door with this summer and I love it!!

You've picked a great color. I'm getting ready to paint an old buffet to use as a TV console. I'm looking forward to your next post.
