Yellow to Aubusson Blue

3.22.2012

Since I have been making some changes in the sun room I decided the little yellow table was not working in here anymore so of course I went to my Annie Sloan chalk paint stash and pulled out one of my favorite colors.

I chose Aubusson Blue because I am trying to add a few touches of blue in this room. 

Y'all know I always just put down a drop cloth wherever and start painting. I don't have a shop so I just usually work in the sun room or great room.

I painted on two coats of the Aubusson and then waxed with clear wax and sanded heavily.

I love when the old colors show through. Lots of layers are best.

Some dark wax was added in places to add even more dimension.

I love how the blue table picks up the blue in this pillow.

Here is a reminder of when it was yellow.

I'm loving the blue and I have a few more touches of blue that will be added in here soon.

Oh, and I bought the fern last year and it is still doing well.

If you have furniture pieces that aren't quite right just grab some paint and transform it.
Such an easy way to get the look you want and especially easier with ASCP.

If you need Annie Sloan chalk paint I have an awesome sponsor on my sidebar and they have the cheapest prices and flat rate shipping. I also know from experience that they ship very quickly.

  2. Good morning, Kim! What a lovely post to see first thing. I have got to get me some ASCP. Love the little table.
    I just put down a drop cloth, too -- let the drops fall where they may!
    Best wishes, Cass

  11. Kim I love the new color. I used to have a lot of blue in my house but over the years I got away from it, lately I've been craving more blue so your table is making me look around to see what I can paint blue!

  20. You have a lot of regulars! I've got to dig into teh archives and catch up!

    I do love the blue! My daughter has a make-up vanity that is a darker mustard color, and she wants to do something different with it. I am pinning this table so I can show her. Thanks for the ideas!!

  24. OK, so I really liked it in yellow, but it's equally nice in blue and seems to fit in better. Can we make an 'I Paint Where I Drop My Cloth' club? Now that I know I'm not alone you know there are thousands of us.

  43. Heidi, I am so glad you enjoyed ordering from them.

    Thanks!

  44. I like both colors, and I guess with the Aubusson blue and heavily distressed, you get both colors. The table looks good with that cute pillow.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think it looks great blue, Kim. I love the way it picks up the blue in the Hampshire pillow. Great job...and I like that it is distressed enough so some of the yellow still shows through-xo Diana

    ReplyDelete
  46. I like the blue so much better, Kim. Actually, I'm trying to get rid of the yellow in my living room. It's a great cheerful color, but I'm already cheerful, I just need to be calm and serene and blue gets me there. Love the change with only little bits of yellow peaking through. Linda

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the blue table and the distressing is fabulous! But I must know where the pillow came from???

  48. Love the table blue and it goes great with that great pillow. Congratulations on keeping the fern alive for a year!

  68. Very pretty Kim! I haven't been a fan of the color blue since I was a kid but I find myself drawn to it now. Funny how our taste change! I love the fern. I have tried & tried but can't keep them alive. I'm going to try again & pick some up this weekend. Any tips?

  69. Hi Kim, I have to say I love yellow, a lot! Having said that I think the little table looks fabulous painted blue and the color really pops behind the white. The blue in the pillow has a partner not. I love it………

  82. Blue with a hint of yellow peeking through really suits that little table. And a perfect "easy peasy" change of personality ...

    Thanks for linking it up at our "It's a Cinch" party ...

    What a fabulous color! Funny, I was never into blue until recently - bought 2 vintage blue velvet chairs and was going to reupholster them but put them in the room and decided they were perfect just the way they are!

    Love the idea of ASCP (never used it - but definitely need to give it a try)! I like anything that skips steps - who wants to prime when they don't have to!

    Anyway, it's the perfect little table sitting in the corner holding your year old (good job!) fern!

    Glad you joined our Cinch party.

  87. Hi, Kim! Found this post I had missed!
    Cream and Aubusson Blue were my first ASCP colors, and I still have lots. I have been wondering what to do with them, this little table looks awesome!
    Thanks for the inspiration!
