A Carl Larsson Pink


This beautiful sideboard reminds me of one my favorite artists, Carl Larsson.  Many of his paintings are used in his books about his home and family in Sweden. This photo was found on Pinterest and serves as the inspiration for my post today. To create a finish with depth and texture, use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Start with Scandinavian Pink and emphasize the details by layering and highlighting them with Primer Red, French Linen, and Old Ochre.
