And here's Olive!

Olive is a deep green with a yellow tinge. I know, I know, it doesn't look like much here, but....

I just love what fellow Stockist Amy from Maison Decor did with this chest! Now, if that doesn't make you fall in love, maybe this will....

Or, mix Olive with Old White to get this lovely color Annie calls Lisbon, the color of pale olive leaves in the capital of Portugal.

Still not convinced? Try mixing Olive with Provence to get a delightful greenish/blue. I used it on the samples boards below to show how to use a Color Wash with Chalk Paint®.

P.S. - I'll be discussing Color Washes at my next Chalk Paint® Class in Richmond on June 26th. 

Happy Painting!  Rachel
