I am loving turquoise lately. I found these vintage candlesticks a while back and was so inspired by their paint job. So I picked up an old mail organizer the other day and gave it a copy paint. Doesn't it look great now?!
I am planning on doing the same thing to our bedroom furniture. I have been slowly gathering pieces for a long time. Dresser here, end table there. Still looking for the perfect bed to make pretty. Having a hard time with that one.
But I'm love this multi paint junked up look. With fun colors-I have visions of a pink and red scheme too. Hmmm...
It's really easy, just pick your colors (I used 3 for this) and dry brush it on your project. Smudge it around a bit with an old rag if you'd like. I took some sandpaper to each layer also. There isn't any right or wrong with this project-it's supposed to be all disorganized. I had a few 3 year olds help me with this one actually.
Here is the way the mail caddy looked before the makeover. Well actually during it-I forgot to take a true "before" shot. So have fun-please email me pictures if you give this a try! We can have a little gallery or something. :)
It's our date night tonight, we've missed a few weeks and I'm looking forward to some adult conversation.
By the way-do you like the papers? They are from Amy Butler's scrap booking line! I was tickled turquoise to see them in my town. I have grand plans for them if I can just find a few minutes of down time..the air is thinning a bit-but it's not totally clear yet. Wish me luck!
