I have a pine rocking chair I want to paint. Not a nice old pine chair, but a modern, shiny pine type one. I thought I might try annie Sloan paint as it needs no prep, but can't decide what colour. I like the look of French Grey painted stuff, but maybe a cream or white would be more versatile, as not decided yet which room the chair will end up in?

Any colour recommendations or tips?

I've just painted a little Victorian varnished plant table in Paloma and it is so fresh and gorgeous! Am about to embark on operation Paint Kitchen Cabinets tomorrow (it's a nesting thing) and using Original for that

I used original for some modern beech bedside units. It's a good light neutral colour but a friend used the French grey and it was lovely.

I just slapped on the paint, watering it down slightly. Waxed, sanded back a little and waxed again. Very simple!
