It's here...it's here!!!!
for months now I have been admiring, swooning over and finally lusting after
the gorgeous color English Yellow from the
Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan palette.
Well lust no more...
Shipments of English Yellow are beginning to arrive at the doors of all the Chalk Paint® Stockist around the USA and Canada.
The Empty Nest received ours yesterday!!!
As soon as Dave, our Fed-Ex guy delivered it, I had to pop open a can.
Gazing into the open can was like watching the summer sun rise.
I immediately painted a sample board so all my customers could fall in love along with me.
I particularly fell in love with English Yellow paired with Annie's Soft Dark Wax...
can you hear my heart beating????
Pick up a copy of Annie Sloan's newest book, Color Recipes for Painted Furniture and she will show you how to create new colors using her new yellow.
This is how Annie Sloan describes her English Yellow
"This clean yellow was particularly popular in English 18th century decoration inspired by hand painted Chinese wallpaper and the development of Chrome Yellow pigment. It was the first no earthy yellow and a first would be very expensive. In the 1950's this yellow became popular as a strong primrose.It can be mixed with Antibes Green to make a lime green."
I already have a piece all pick out for this lovely new color.
