Beautiful Arles

Arles. Does anyone know what this is? Well, Arles is a city in the south of France but it's also a color paint in the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint line. I painted a vanity and mirror with this color this weekend and let me just say, I think I'm in LOVE!!! This vanity goes with the bed that I recently painted in Old White. My customer wanted it heavily distressed and I was happy to oblige of course!! Here's a close up of the drawers.

Here is the before picture. I must say, the furniture was pretty stunning before.


  1. I haven't done much with my Arles paint yet so I really enjoyed seeing it on another piece. It is gorgeous! And, yes, that is a fabulous piece of furniture.

    1. Thanks Deb! It turned out great and I can't wait to use this color again.

  2. What a great vanity! And I do love that color! Nicely done! Thanks so much for linking up and linking back!

  3. Oh wow..I LOVE this colour, good job!!

  4. This is gorgeous. You are right - the piece was beautiful to begin with but this color also suits it perfectly.

  5. How did you get this color? Is it a mix of colors

  6. Did you mix it with white, or did you use the full color? I'm assuming you used black wax?
