Now that the kitchen makeover is done, and the master bathroom is complete (reveal coming soon!) I’ve been back in my studio doing some custom work! I just completed a lovely headboard using Old Ochre and Napoleonic Blue! I am LOVING Napoleonic Blue and was so excited my client wanted it on her headboard!
The before was not bad at all…it just did not match her decor and she was ready for a change.
I sketched out a idea and got to work…
I was thrilled when the only guidance she gave me was color and let me do what I felt the headboard needed!
I painted it all in Old Ochre, highlighted it with Napoleonic Blue, finished it all with Clear Wax and then added some Dark Wax.
So, when I popped the lid on Napoleonic Blue I knew it had to paired up with some orange in honor of the blue and orange Auburn Tigers!
I painted one coat of Napoleonic Blue on my pumpkin. In no time it was dry…love that! I then took some 150 grit sandpaper and rubbed it up and down the pumpkin, revealing pops of orange! I wiped the dust off and then coated it with clear wax. In less than 30 minutes the pumpkin was done!
My Taylor sign was also a super quick project.
Trish had picked up a stack of these chippy boards recently when she was on a “pickin” trip. I grabbed one up and stenciled on my name and house number with black craft paint. When that dried I waxed the entire board with AS clear wax. The board looks as good as it did the first day I put it out and it has been poured rain on for days on end! Thanks to AS wax!
