Chapin Gray

Any French Provincial piece is stunning on it's own but adding paints and glazes can bring out its curves and details!  After looking at this piece for sometime as it took up the majority of space in our dining room I finally decided on breaking out of the norm of the white distressed base with a stained top and went for blends and washes of different grays. Everyone in the house was happy that a decision was finially made and I was no longer second guessing my decision!

COLOR...

The french countryside came calling when this piece was transformed from a china hutch to a french-infused multi-purpose etagere. Using a 50/50 mix of GF Chalk White and GF Chapin Gray on the body, with the detailing done in GF Chalk White and Modern Masters metallic paint bringing life and vibrance to the carved florals, the colors in this piece are reminiscent of traditional country french furniture of old. This piece is now enjoying new life!

"This hutch has been passed around my family for years. When it made its way back to me, I knew I wanted a modern farmhouse feel. I used Chapin Gray Chalk Style Paint on the case, Antique Walnut Gel Stain on the drawers and top, and dry brushed Lamp Black Milk Paint on the knobs. I've been a big fan of your gel stains for awhile now, but this was my first time using General Finishes paints. They will be my first choice going forward!" - Reminiscence Designs by GEA

"Easy breezy and so so fresh! This piece was given a head to toe makeover. Top has been stripped and stained in a custom weathered oak blend which highlights the beautiful wood grain in shades of grey, whites and cream, glazed with General Finishes Winter White. Bottom painted in General Finishes Chapin Gray Chalk Style Paint which is similar to an off white with a pale grey undertone, just a touch of distressing for character and then sealed with General Finishes HPTC flat.
