Annie Sloan's latest paint color is called Antoinette.

I recently purchased a quart of it to paint a chest of drawers for a friend. She needed a piece of furniture for her daughter's room. I found this beautiful piece of furniture but I knew it needed a little bit of TLC. My dad and I repaired the drawers and doors. Then I primed the whole thing, painted it with two coats of Antoinette, finished with clear wax and lightly distressed it. The hardware was painted the same color and it turned out just perfect.

Here's a before picture

And the after pictures


  1. It looks great! I just bought a sample of this color, but haven't found anything to use it on yet. Now following :)

  2. What a sweet piece! I am sure your friend is just thrilled with it! I have a sample of Antoinette as well that is just begging to make something beautiful!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,
