Creating “Greige” Colors using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan

Many bloggers state, “Greige Could be the Best Neutral Color Ever”   So, if you follow us on our Facebook LIVE videos (which are saved on our Facebook page for you to watxh anytime you want)…..then you saw Courtney and Trish playing around with some Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan color combinations to create “beige’s.”

Please feel free to save these to your Pinterest boards!!!!

When we mix colors and we say “mix one part of “X” to two parts of “Y”  The “part” references to a unit of measure.  That unit of measure is dependent on the size of your project.  So, for example, it could be one tablespoon Coco and one tablespoon French Linen.  OR, it could mean – one cup Coco and one cup French Linen.  Just keep the unit of easure of your choice…consistent!

Coco  and Graphite mixed two parts of Coco and one part Graphite:


Four parts Coco  to One part Graphite


Three parts Country Grey to One part French Linen

Old Ochre, Old White and French Linen– equal parts of all of them mixed together:
