I custom mixed up this colour using remnants of other colours. I actually mix up my own paint all the time. I buy the paint in gallons un-tinted, and then I get the tint separately in quart sized cans. It is more cost effective this way, and also I am not committed to a huge can of any particular colour. I actually popped into my local Dulux store last night to ask for some of my favorite cobalt/navy blue tint, I only asked for a quart's worth of tint, but he cheerily offered me a whole gallons worth of tint. I think this offer may have had something to do with the packet of Twizzlers I waved under his nose. No one can resist a licorice strap.
I can't remember the colours I used for this piece but there was a lot of green in it as is evident in the pictures. I didn't want the piece to be so bright that it looked too 'childish', so I made sure to be liberal with the dark wax. The piece was painted with chalk paint, and then I waxed it with Annie Sloan Clear and Dark wax.
I kept the hardware original on this piece, I just buffed it up a little bit to refresh it.
The most time consuming part was the distressing which I did by hand. Getting into all of the details shown in the picture below took a fair bit of time.
I again used my vintage Eaton's wallpaper on the drawer facings. This paper is so versatile, I have used it on so many pieces now. It goes great with blues, greens and turquoise colours.
Here is the before during the sanding process.
