As you may now be aware I am the stockist in Victoria of L'Essentiel Pure Mineral Colour. The sample pots go a heck of a long way and you can easily paint 2 chairs with one little jewelled pot of this glorious paint. The colours are very pretty but I think my favourite at the moment is Versailles which is a lovely ochre mustard colour. The set of drawers shown here were painted with Versailles and dark waxed with L'Essentiel dark wax.
The paint has lovely coverage and 1 coat plus maybe a little touch up is enough. It suits pieces that are just crying out to be shabbied as the paint distresses very naturally.
I used a cornflower blue to paint this pretty French inspired bedroom chair. Just 1 coat and lots of distreesing and voila! it was ready to go.
