Meet Cream - My ASCP Color Review Page

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to a new blog series dedicated to the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors.

View more color reviews on my Review Page.

Here is my disclaimer:

I am not an official Annie Sloan Stockist. I work and sell at a store that carries the paint and I LOVE painting with it. These are my thoughts and my thoughts only. Proceed at your own risk. ;)

Cream is a color that surprised me. I purchased it on a day when I was really wanting something new and out of my comfort zone. I really like the ASCP Blues and Neutrals but hadn't ventured to Cream yet. Needless to say, this is the can than came home with me in April.

Oh my...was I surprised at how much I loved the color!  My photo's today are a bit tricky to tell but I can help you through...walk over to your fridge and grab your tub of butter. 

Good, now open it.

Yep, that is the color of Cream.

It is just like a happy tub of butter.

Here is my most current project:

Cream dry brushed with French Linen - Clear Wax and Heavy Dark Wax

Color: Cream

Coverage: Good to Excellent - Covers similarly to Old White or Coco. All of these pieces are using 1 coat to cover.

Great Pairings: This color looks fantastic with Paris Grey, French Linen, the purples, Aubusson, Primer Red...

Would I use this again?: Yes. The color goes beautifully with the paint colors in my home. I will continue to do "shop" projects in this color but also ones for my home.

Clear or Dark: Both. It is a lovely color with Clear but beautifully rustic with Dark.

Final Thoughts:
Because of my style, I tend to like to "mess" with this color. If I use it straight, I distress it heavily. I LOVE to layer with it. I love how it turned out on this coffee table. Rough and Rustic. However, my favorite piece to date has this color layered underneath Primer Red.

I am very happy with this color. Grey and Yellow are so popular right now. This is a great purchasing choice.

Here are a few of my other Cream projects:

Kitchen Shelf Box - Cream. Top Cabinets - Old Ochre

Antique Mirror - Cream
My Cream Dresser - Clear Wax

My Primer Red Stepback - Cream Accent - Clear and Dark Wax

I really hope this review helps you in choosing the right paint color for you.

I am working hard to get though the paint colors as quickly as a can without overwhelming everyone. Is there a particular color that anyone would like to see sooner that others?

 Thanks for stopping in. :)

FYI...I purchase my Chalk Paint from Carter's Cottage. :)

Don't forget, I am now your online location for Toft Touch Soaps!
