  1. I love befores and afters, too. And so funny that I was thinking about this piece and wondering when you’d share it with us! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It turned out beautifully. Makes me extra impatient to find the cabinet that I’ve been looking for for my studio. Those knobs are gorgeous. Where did you find them?

    1. Thank you Anne! You know, I was literally looking on Craig’s List every single day and there were a few times that the hutch I wanted ended up being snapped up by someone else before I could get to it. Just be persistent and I know you’ll find your cabinet. And the knobs were purchased HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi, I just found your site while searching images of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck egg…your welsh dresser stood out to me, it is beautiful!

    I live in Australia and we are only just getting ASCP here now. I have been lucky enough to be offered two tins of paint and two of wax to blog about a project, and I am trying to decided whether to get old white and duck egg, or old white and provence. Do you know if duck egg and provence are quite different, as I am finding it quite hard to tell looking at images online.

    thanks alot, love your work ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Karen, thank you for your visit and kind words! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’ve never used A.S. Provence but from images I’ve seen, it looks like more of a french blue to me. As for Duck Egg, I have tried it fresh from the jar and also have mixed it with white and found I like it better when it has been lightened up a bit. Good luck with your project!

  3. When you mix Duck Egg Blue with white how much white do you use? And do you use Annie Sloan white or any white you may have on hand?
    Love this piece!

    1. Hi Danielle, For this piece I mixed my A.S. Duck Egg with some white latex paint I had left over from painting our living room. I just keep adding the duck egg until I got the paleness I wanted. The latex paint was (if I remember correctly) “Pot of Cream” from Behr and I think it was in an eggshell finish–but don’t quote me on that because I buy a lot of paint and that can is long gone. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope this helps!
