Straight out of the can is a little bright, and I wasn’t sure at this point if I wanted to use dark wax (I usually decide how something will look during the whole process. I rarely know exactly what I will do ahead of time). So, I painted the first coat just pure Provence, then the second coat a custom mixture of Provence, Old White and a bit of Duck Egg. The branch and birds design was drawn– free-hand with chalk, then painted just plain Old White. I loved doing it. It was so fast and fun! Much more free than the strict guidelines of a Union Jack design, like I’ve done in blue, gray, and traditional colors. Then I distressed it lightly in some areas to reveal the deeper color of Provence, and all the way down to the wood on the edges.
