American Paint Company’s recently retired color , CAMEO, a soft pale pink, reminds me of these
a lighter version of these balloons
the background of this
pretty much most of this
I’m not a pastel girl – but I am drawn to to these faint hint of color colors… I love Cameo, and decided to pair it up with a brand new American Paint Color, Tarnished Platter – a medium locker room gray –
A petite, vintage cabinet –
First coat APC Tarnished Platter , then APC Cameo –
The inside of the cupboard received one coat of Caromal Botanicals Salvia, a lighter grey than Tarnished Platter, but in the same family. I chose Salvia because it could be left as is, no topcoat required – I don’t like painting inside cupboards/cabinets/shelves, so the less steps necessary the better 🙂
It took me awhile to combine and customize hardware that I liked –
I silver leafed the legs – they were perfect to dress up
and added a little more unexpected sparkly shimmer
I sanded the layered chalk/clay finish, refining and revealing until I was satisfied, then sealed it up with a layer of my favorite wax, American Paint Company Clear Wax.
Though I often recommend more durable topcoat options for surfaces that will be used daily, (APC Topcoat, Caromal’s Reclaim Sealer, Beautiful Matte/Satin Sealer), furniture pieces like this one are perfect for wax. APC’s natural waxes are the icing on the cake –
Something about the petite, daintiness of this cabinet, drew me in … I wanted to dress up every inch of it –
I stenciled inside the cabinet, using a sticky size and cut glass mixed with shimmer glitter –
Every time I use a soft pink, it sells-
Must be the color, this piece already found a new owner 🙂
