Seeing Red…

At first glance, this color scared me…It came out of the can in a hot shade of pink!!! I was trying to figure out what the fuss was all about of the Annie Sloan CP Emperor’s Silk.

Well, it didn’t take long after two coats and a brush of clear/dark wax to richen this hue up to all it’s potential!!! No distressing even needed. Don’t you love it? You have to admit… even if you don’t favor red everyday, there is a boldness in this color in every way!!! Want to see this chair in all it’s glory? Come visit us at Total Bliss in Summerfield.

Question of the day… Do you like red? If so, what would you paint this color if you had a can?

    I’d paint all my black kitchen table chairs that color… really pretty! You’re making me want to paint something…

    I just painted my front door red over July 4th, but it wasn’t this paint. the only indoor place I have red as an accent is laundry room – red and turquoise! Maybe I should paint the washer and dryer red? nah, I’d choose turquoise!

    It was a scary color coming out of the can!! Did you prime it first? I had a difficult time covering with it.
