Chair With Behr Paint



Hello all…I know I’ve been a bad blogger this summer but truthfully I’ve just been enjoying the hot days and pool, the grandkids and just not having to do/go anywhere types of days! Plus I don’t work anymore so I think that has a lot to do with it: I’m sure you know what I mean.
Anyway, I still visited Pinterest on some days and found this pin that has proved to be right on! Go to my chalkpaint board to pin this. You will be so glad you did! I wrote down the chalkpaint colors and the Behr paint colors and while shopping stopped at Home Depot and picked out the colors that are so very similar to ASCP. I decided to paint a chair that I had during my prim days…a very sturdy chair but painted the wrong colors for me now.

I bought a sample of Behr Caterpillar 430B-6 that is so close to the Antibes Green, see if you think so.

Now I haven’t seen the Antibes Green in person but I bet this is sure close, don’t you think? I’ve haven’t put wax on it yet because I want to order the dark wax so that will have to wait, I did distress it though!

Some changes going on here at Something Nice and Pretty but like it says in my header “My Home is My Hobby” it’s just that some time you have to take time off from it.
I hope your summer has been going great been hot here so the pool got good use this year!
Let me know if you have tried the paint colors, I only chose ones that I wanted, I have a big project to do with the quart I bought of one color.
I’ll be partying at : Common Ground… Be Inspired

A perfect pop of colour! It totally looks like it has been that way forever.

Antibes Green is my favorite chalk paint color, so I am always happy to see it used. I would say caterpillar is pretty close, it looks like it has a little more yellow as its base but a very close match. Great choice:)

Hi Rondell - I found you at Debbiedoo's Blitzen 9. I found this post interesting because I have never worked with chalkboard paint. I think your chair turned out great. I'll be following so I can keep up with your new projects. If you have a minute pop over for a visit at Deliciously Inspired - www.deliciouslyinspired.com

Hey! I surelike that color a lot! I think it looks wonderful with your white desk. It so fresh and bright and cheery! I understand completely about slow posts. I am surprised I have anyone following anymore because I spend so little time on it. I like to think I am still enjoying blogging, it just comes in waves now! Glad to hear you are having a great summer!
