I had unusually good luck this weekend in the furniture picking department. Big Daddy and I actually found a moving sale near our neigjborhood and I also made my rounds at all my favorite Thriftstores. I had been on somewhat of a dry spell recently so this was a nice change of pace. I was really craving some Paint Therapy!
Here’s one of my finds:
That’s going home with me, thank you.
It’s a darling little table ! It’s perfect for beside a smaller chair or even on a porch. I dug through my paint stash and way in the back I found a pot of aqua paint I had custom mixed back in the Summer and I had just enough for table.
I call this custom color Sea Glass. It came to be when I mixed together three Americana Decor chalk paints. I used Treasure, Primative and New life to create to me , what is the perfect Aqua.
You might remember, I’ve used it here :
And here :
And now on the little table
After two coats of the Sea Glass paint I added a coat of clear wax and then, not allowing the clear wax to dry, I applied the dark wax (pretty sparingly). I just didn’t want to totally change or overwhelm the color.
I was in Publix over the weekend and I could not pass up a bag of these!
I had a little furry helper while I was shooting these pictures today.
We are off to take a nap now.
Don’t be hatin’ on us.
Blogs I love!
