Annie Sloan Coco Paint

Posted by on Feb 26, 2014 in chalk paint, master bedroom, painted furniture | 9 comments

I’m in the process of decorating our master bedroom.

I’m almost done.

So close to being done…that I’ve almost stopped working on it…

…before it’s finished.

You know what I’m talking about.

You work and work and work on a project…and then you just leave the last things on the list undone.

You’re bored with that project and ready to move on to the next.

So today when I was fanning through my paint deck trying to pick out the perfect shade of cream for my kitchen (which is the next project)

I stopped myself…and marched myself up to my room…and finished another project that needed to be done in there.


And I’ll be so glad that I did. 🙂

So today I pulled out the Annie Sloan Coco paint.

Neutral Master Bedroom

Here is the before…It looks much better in this picture than it did in person.

Annie Sloan Coco Chest

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Coco.

I distressed it with a damp rag.

And followed it with a clear wax.

It’s perfect with my gold leaf bed.

And my new burlap bedskirt.

And that’s one more project that I can scratch off of my list!

One project closer to being able to move on to my kitchen!

(And if you happen to know the perfect shade of cream…you can just leave that in the comments.)

Life to the full!

  1. Good luck with finishing it all up! I love that chest. What a great piece- xo Diana

  2. LOVE the way that chest turned out Melissa! I’ve done quite a few pieces in Coco…it’s one of my favs!

  3. I certainly know how you feel when you are anxious to start a new project and there are things left undone from the previous project. By the way, the bedroom looks beautiful and the chest really finished it off. There are so many things I want to do to our house and I am getting anxious to start.

  4. Melissa I had to chuckle at your comment about allllmost being finished!!!

    I am the exact same way! I will be almost done after hours of work, and think to myself, “hmmmmm, I should teach myself to make stained glass!”

    isn’t that a funny thing—- I am the same way!!!!

    your room looks great!!!

  5. Looks amazing, as always!! Are you a Gemini? I ask because I am and we’re notorious for having 50 projects going at once and not finishing most of them! ha!!


  6. This came out great ASCP Coco is one of my favorite colors. Love the burlap bedskirt!


  7. The chest is very nice, BUT is THAT the infamous gold-leafed iron bed? It is gorgeous!

  8. GORGEOUS – what a makeover!
    You distressed it just perfectly – ( even though it looks like French Linen on my computer LOL )

  9. Beautiful transformation! Can’t wait to see the room when you’ve finished! Would love for you to share at Fridays Unfolded!
