A fellow American Paint Company Retailer shared her 'recipe' for making a burnt orange color on our Facebook page a week or two ago. I mixed it up last week and brushed it on a dresser. Tell me what you think of Pumpkin!
I'm rather smitten with her if I dare say so. I think I am looking forward to those cool Fall nights and the crisp sunny days.
It is a super rich saturate color! It kind of made this very simple styled dresser special in my opinion. Well that and those drawer pulls!
I mean, those are pretty special too, right? Yes, they are, and I so love it when the original hardware can be kept with a piece. This dresser, as many of these do, had a lot of texture in the old finish. I suspect that storage in a hot garage or shed causes much of this. I wet distressed and took advantage of it to give it a shabbied up look.
I have both Orange Grove and Saddle currently in stock at The Brass Armadillo in Omaha. My booth is on Montana Avenue. Booth 208. There is also a flyer about upcoming paint classes and tips for painting with Chalk/Clay based paints in the booth! Stop by and check it out!!
Have a fabulous week!
