Check out this AMAZINGLY create armoire transformation. Annie’s Painters-in-Residence Shed Eleven, used layers of paint and candle wax as a resist to create texture on this piece. They were inspired by batik printmaking. We absolutely love this print design on this cabinet. The first step was to apply Chalk Paint® Graphite before applying the melted candle wax in the outline of the leopard spots, to the areas where they wanted to keep the Graphite.

After she applied a coat of Chalk Paint® in Aries, Scandinavian Pink, and melted candle wax. Once they applied the coats of paints they used a hair drier to soften the wax, then lifted it off using a palette knife. Each layer of paint showed off a different paint color! The piece was sealed in Clear Wax to make sure the design and the paint were durable and would not chip.  See the full tutorial here!

We cannot resist but to show off these other beautiful pieces of furniture painted in Scandinavian Pink Chalk Paint that we found on Pinterest. For more DIY + Painted Furniture inspiration check out our Boards on Pinterest! In the meantime here are a few of our fav’s done in Scan Pink.
