Like they say.... Third times a charm!

At least I hope it is!! After using this color on the chest in my living room I've been dying to use  Aubusson Blue (Annie Sloan) again. I thought it would look good on the chest in my son's room that went from Red to Paris Grey and now Aubusson Blue all in a years time!

 Here it is in Paris Grey. It looked nice but blended in to much with the wall color.
Big difference don't you think. LOVE this color! Wish I could find more pieces to use it on.
 I love all the layers of paint coming through after it was sanded.


 His room is so bright it might be hard to tell, but this color gives a nice contrast against the wall color. When my kids came home from school yesterday they were like mom your painting that AGAIN!! They should know better by now;)
                        Have a great weekend!

I love the color, and that is a great chest of drawers, too. I could really use something tall and slim like that in one of our small bedrooms!

Of course, I love the blue, that is one of my favorites by Annie. Looks great Martina!

LOL @ your kids! Mine left for school one day and I was finishing painting a room. When they came home I was still finishing painting it... just a different color.

It looks great, Martina! It's a great color for your son's room, too. I'll bet that color would look great on a little accent table or stool. I'd say a trip to the thrift store is in order! : )

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

You know I love that color and it looks nice having all those layers showing through. I think you and I are joined at the hip!

I have not seen that color used before. I love it, and the piece turned out spectacular. I may have to get me some of that color.

Judy said...

I love this color. I think what makes it look even more awesome is all the layers of paint you can see. Very professional looking. Great color. Thanks for your kind comments on my home tour. Have a great weekend.

Happy Weekend!

I love the shape of the dresser, Martina, and the layers showing through are very cool.

Anne said...

Gorgeous dresser! and the colour is spectacular.

Babs said...

Looks good Martina! LOL I had to laugh at your painting it three time in a year. You and Kim! Giggle.

Kelly said...

That turned out great. I think you and my sister could tag team each other for new painting projects! I always enjoy seeing them. They give me good ideas.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Thank goodness there is no rule about how many times we can paint something! I love that color Martina.

Sharon (Roses and Rust) said...

Great job! I would think by now your kids should be surprised if they come home and you're not busy painting something! Have a lovely weekend x Sharon

Susie said...

Those colors coming thru after the sanding just truly set it off. love it. I just read the post of your mom's apartment..oh how very nice you can have her near. I loved her new things too. Smiles, Susie

Anne said...

I really love paris gray.But I agree that color fits in better with that room color.I really love those colors peaking through.You did a great job!

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) said...

A lovely vignette and I must say I love your TV cabinet. I am still searching for an affordable (to me) dresser or sideboard to makeover for our basement TV room.

Sandra said...

Martina, I've been meaning to read your blog for a while now. I just now added you to my sidebar so I can continue reading. I loved the old color, but this one is awesome as well. I let a chest like this one get away recently...I didn't want to pay too much $$$ for it, but I need one for my guest room so I can put the tv on top as well. I'll continue looking for a chest but in the meantime, I will continue reading your blog. Hope you visit mine when you have some time. I'll be following you.

-Sandra
