Jelena Pticek's English Yellow Sideboard

For Jelena Pticek's third Painters in Residence project, she decided to brighten up a rather heavy looking sideboard using my paint, Chalk Paint™.

Jelena chose to work with a simple technique and one main colour – English Yellow – to really emphasise the transformation that can be made from painting an old, pre-loved piece. English Yellow is a brilliant bright yellow from the Chalk Paint™ palette and is a great fifties, vintage colour. As well as brightening the piece up, Jelena wanted to emphasise the wonderful ornate detailing which was previously almost unnoticeable. To do this, she lightly rubbed sandpaper over the details to reveal areas of the original wood.

Inside the cupboard, Jelena used Scandinavian Pink, a colour that works beautifully for the interior of cupboards and drawers, and created a gorgeous contrast. Jelena then finished the piece with my Clear Soft Wax.

How have you used the wonderfully colourful English Yellow on your projects?


Yours, Annie
