Everything But Paris Grey

I am refinishing a piece for a friend's lake house (how fun, right?!  A lake house!) Anyway, she had these great comforters & needed a dresser for some storage in the bedroom.  I thought the blue would be the best color to go with (and I already had the perfect piece in mind).
Here is the before:


We were trying to match the blue in the comforter, I ended up mixing every paint color I had to get this color, except Paris Grey!  I used-Old White, Duck Egg Blue & Provence.  It was a pretty good match!
After:





The photo below is the most accurate color:

  14. Great job on the dresser. I'm imprssed that you mixed the paint to get your own color. I haven't done that with the ASCP. I'm a new follower.

  15. you did a great job on the dresser. I've not been that happy with the ASCP colors except for old white. I think I'll try mixing them together like you did. I have mixed other paints in with them and that worked somewhat. thanks for the great ideas. Love the dresser.
