Barnworn For A Customer…Colonial Blue Parchment Paprika…

A customer has a laminated flat storage cabinet that she wants to refinish…   she wants to layer the color, and create a barnworn type finish, she’s just not certain the color combination…

I pulled out a piece of laminate and sampled a couple of finishes that caught her eye –  Parchment over Paprika,  and Wisteria over Colonial Blue –

Paprika textured, then chipping creme, then parchment over top.  Sanded back, then topped with Coffee Glaze, Tea Glaze and Toner.    Last section has no glaze or toner-

Then we have Colonial Blue textured,  then a stencil using Wisteria, chipping creme, and Parchment over top.  Sand back and top with Coffee Glaze, Tea Glaze and Toner.  Last section has no glaze or toner-

Lastly, we have Colonial Blue textured,  then a stencil using Mustard, chipping creme, and Parchment over top.  Sand back and top with Coffee Glaze, Tea Glaze and Toner.  Last section has no glaze or toner-

And which one did Emilie pick?  Shoot, I can’t remember exactly.  She came back and purchased Wisteria, Paprika, Parchment and Chipping Creme.  I think her plan was to layer the Paprika and  Parchment , with chipping  creme in the middle, and sand back.   No toner or glaze over top.

Emilie, if you read this and I got it wrong, let me know – better yet, send pictures when you’re done!

    This is the best sample of Caromal Colours distressed I have seen. Love the stencil. Did you use straight wisteria for the stencil? Marjorie

    • thanks Marjorie 🙂 Yes, on the one section the stencil was pure wisteria, on the other section we used pure mustard – she was wanting to see if a little yellow would work for her space….

      I like this sampling because it visually portrays the differences in glazing vs. toning..
