Valspar Paint Color Rushing Stream Petticoat Junktion Paint Project

tantalizing turquoise and mesmerizing metallic

Is there anything better than getting a bargain…or getting a great bargain?


free stuff….

free paint to be exact.


Valspar Paint Color Rushing Stream

Valspar paint color Rushing Stream.

I was in Lowes this past week buying plants for my diy chair planters when I walked by the Valspar color sample display.

Bells were going off in my head…”don’t I have a coupon for a free color sample”?

Yes….it was in one of my magazines and luckily I had ripped it out and stuck it in my purse.

So I grabbed the brightest and prettiest of the color samples and headed for the check out stand.

Yeah! Free Paint!

perfect project for the free paint

This nightstand has been sitting in the workshop for awhile.

It came from My Favorite Junk Shop.

I seriously don’t know what I will do if that place ever closes down.

It’s Heaven for a junker like me.

I spray painted the drawers and hardware metallic silver.

I used the same Rust-Oleum Bright Coat Metallic Finish I used on my Polka Dot Table.

The Rushing Stream is a really pretty color.

It’s a turquoise or aqua depending on your definition of those colors.

It looks great with the metallic silver.

The nightstand was a little rough in places and you can really see it with the metallic paint.

The finish on the nightstand had the little dark raised flecks to make it look aged.

But the flaws add another dimension to the over all look.

What do you guys think?

Do you take advantage of freebies?

I only used about a third of the paint sample so there will be more “Rushing Stream” projects in the future.

Leave me a little note below.

I love hearing from you.

You only have to leave your name (first name is ok) and your email address, then your comment.

    I love the free samples! I get them too in magazines now and then. I even buy that size as I love the Valspar line. I have a nightstand that would look wonderful with the silver accents. Thanks so much for your inspiration! Great job and such a pretty color!!!

  2. FUN color combo!! I love the silver drawers…and their imperfections. Adds aged “charm” :)

    The Valspar free samples are the main reason I kept a hard copy BHG subscription instead of switching to a digital one. Did you know you can get a custom color sample (using any Valspar color chip)for free with the coupon? It doesn’t have to be premixed on the shelf :) .

    I love it!

    Home Depot and Lowe’s usually have paint testers that people rejected or that didn’t come out right for sale, anywhere from 50 cents to a couple dollars. I always stop by and look at what they have. Of course there’s always a lot of beige (booooooring….), but every so often I score a bright green, or purple, orange…. I have been able to amass quite a collection this way.

    Looks fantastic! Do you need to prime the drawer fronts first before spraying with the metallic paint?
