Turquoise Play Furniture

My husband picked up this doll furniture at a garage sale a few years ago. I just now got around to painting them. It's too bad I don't have a girl or I would be keeping these. I think they are just darling-love the way they turned out!

Turquoise Dresser


I think I have found my favorite turquoise color. This piece is painted in reflection pool  by Lowe's Valspar paint collection. I used this color a few years ago on some coffee tables, and I just fell in love with the color. I am not really into red anymore, so when I saw this dresser, I immediately saw it as a green turquoise color. This piece is FOR SALE so if you or someone you know is interested, you can message me or email.

Fireplace Mantle

I finally redid my mantle the way I wanted it. It was originally brown like my cabinets, but I wanted to lighten up the space so it was not so dark. I painted it the same color white as the trim throughout my house and then distressed it so the brown would show through a bit. This project has been a long time coming. I'm glad it's done!

Robin's Egg Blue Coffee Table

I have been so ready for spring lately. This robin's egg blue table makes me happy! I primed it white first and then painted with a shade of turquoise I had laying around. I added in an extra ingredient to the paint to thicken it up. When I sanded over it, I was left with the white speckles which created the robin egg look. I glazed over the paint with a tobacco color mixture. I wish I could keep this one, but I will be posting it for sale.

EAT sign

I saw this reclaimed wood eat sign on a blog I follow and decided to have my husband recreate one. The wood was taken out of our junk pile in the barn. My husband did most of the work, while I worked on another project. I used two coats of shellac and they were done! I could have painted them, but I love the raw wood that brings a rustic texture to the white cabinetry. I like the way they really make a statement when you walk in.
