You Make Me Blush


I love this rosey blend of pinks, not too juvenile, not too sophisticated. Knowing that it is not one solid color, but a mix of a few is the most important part in recreating this finish. It reminds me of a watercolor painting, the way the shades blend and separate. The easiest way to get this look is to use the four colors of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and create layers. But you could also cheat a bit if you didn't have all these colors, by mixing different strengths of Primer Red and Old White and layering the tints.
