Sunday Snapshot ... New ASCP Custom Color

It's been a long time since I talked to you about any of my painting projects.  I'm still working on stuff, I just haven't posted about any of it.  This morning, even though I'm just getting started on the project, I HAVE to share with you the new color of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint that I mixed up for my brother's kitchen cabinets.

The top color is made by mixing 3 parts Provence and 1 part Olive.  It is a lovely, clear blue-green.  I am using it with a base coat of Country Grey, and wet distressing with a Scotchbrite pad to give a gentle hint of age and use. 
With this sample door completed and approved, I can now get to work on the rest of the doors and drawer fronts later this week.  I'm so excited about doing a whole kitchen.  It's going to be so cool!
Happy Sunday, Everyone.  I hope it was a good one.
P.S.  There's a photo of the humble kitchen in THIS blog post from last month.  I have lots of photos of what my brother has done to disassemble and rearrange the kitchen so far, and I will continue to take Before, During, and After photos of my part of the process. 


  1. Oh I like that and would like to see a photo of the kitchen when it's finished. I have a mahogany buffet that makes me think of you because I'd love to refinish it but just don't know how. Maybe someday.

  2. Hi Connie, Don't forget to get before pictures so we can see the before and after. Looking forward to seeing the results.

  3. Morning Connie,

  5. Such a pretty color, can't wait to see the finished project! - Susan

  6. My mother-in-law has nearly identical cabinets in her home. She just recently admitted she might like to update a bit. I can't wait to see your finished pictures to share with her since it's not the easiest to find pictures of painted cabinets in this style. Thank you for sharing with all of us.

  7. What a beaUtiful color!
    What an ambitious project!
    Can't wait to see the outcome!
