Beautiful tone of dusty / pale creamy pink - but doesn’t cover as well as others in the range
24 October 2017
This is my favourite make of chalk paint, and I paint furniture regularly but whenever I can I choose a colour from the Shabby Chic Furniture Paint range. Their Licuorice and Chalky White are both lovely. This colour I didn’t use before, from the first look I can’t agree with the previous reviewer noting it’s grey-pink. It does look strawberry yoghurt to me? It’s a creamy pink slight lilac undertone and very slight greyish - so more close to a dusty pink tone and won’t stand out as ‘baby pink’ at all - it’s not at all like that. I have a few Neptune items in their Oyster Pink linen and this colour resembles that closely - if this helps. I gave it four stars only though because of the coverage not being as good as other colours in the range. I paint quite thin coats, and painting the inside of a greenish mid-grey cabinet, I needed 3 coats to cover it fully. So I had to order a third pot and now paid more for 750ml than I would’ve for a 1L pot, simply because it doesn’t cover as well as what I’m used to when using this paint. It’s a shame because the colour is gorgeous, it will look lovely when I finish - a French linen cabinet in Licuorice black, with strawberry yoghurt shelves inside. It’s just as I planned it to look, hence still deserves 4 stars.
