Hey there, Crys’Dawna here!
Before we start, I want to say I love all things color! With that being said, I think there is ALWAYS room for a well placed neutral boho piece in your home. Is neutral boho even a thing? Well….it is NOW!
- Burlap Chalk Mineral Paint
- Fluff Chalk Mineral Paint
- Vintage Duck Egg Chalk Mineral Paint
- Spanish Moss Chalk Mineral Paint
- Synthetic Paint Brushes
- Stencil Brush
- Damask Stencil
One of the first steps to this piece was to paint the base coat in Spanish Moss. I removed all of the drawers so I could paint the frame as well as the sides. I taped around the side details so I could keep that part natural wood and paint the trim piece in Fluff later.
When working with the drawers the first thing I did was paint the center in the color Burlap.
Next step was to paint the trim around the drawer edges with Fluff. When your second coat of Burlap is still wet you want to add the Vintage Duck Egg around the edges.
You will add the Vintage Duck Egg and then take a paint brush and go in a circular motion and horizontal sweeping motion to blend. Using these colors added a small pop of color but stayed true to the neutral theme.
After your drawers are completely dried, stenciling will be the next step. I used a wall damask stencil and cut it to fit the drawer insets. Fluff and a stencil brush were used to create this next layer. Painters tape is great for holding stencils in place without pulling off paint.
You do not want too much paint on your brush because it will bleed underneath the stencil. I do not wait for the paint to dry to remove my stencils. While carefully removing the tape I pulled the stencil away to reveal a super cute layer!
