Is it bright where you are?
It’s bright here, whether the sun is shining or not.
That’s our furniture theme today….”bright”.
You guys know I love bright colors so this month’s theme is right up my alley.
Two Layer Green & Turquoise Furniture Finish
I got this piece at the Nashville Flea Market last weekend.
It’s a sewing cabinet and it still had the sewing machine inside…minus electric cord and foot pedal.
The JTS removed the machine for me and I started painting.
The paint girl at Lowes mixed some custom paint for me.
Love that bright green!
I pulled on a pair of latex gloves and put a thin layer of Vaseline on areas of the table.
Then I painted on a layer of turquoise paint. As soon as the turquoise paint was dry I used a shop towel…those that come in the can and have a cleaning product on them….and started wiping off turquoise paint.
I either didn’t rub on enough Vaseline or that paint is good stuff because I had to rub and rub to get that paint off.
Here’s how it looked after the wet distressing.
I bought the knobs at Hobby Lobby but they weren’t doing it for me…not bright enough…not much of a statement.
I’ve used these knobs on a piece before and I love them but not for this table.
I grabbed some white porcelain knobs from my stash and this Krylon spray paint.
The paint has been in my workshop for several years.
I bought it at a thrift store and it was in a package with a can of silver paint.
The name on the paint is holiday green.
I’m sure they don’t make it anymore but I sure wish they did.
It’s the brightest, shiniest, prettiest green.
The photos don’t do it justice.
When I started putting the knobs on the table I noticed one of them was missing the screw threads inside……it’s always something!
I found 4 more porcelain knobs with the swirl design and I painted them.
See how shiny the top three are?
The others have the same sheen but they were still wet when I took this photo.
Turquoise and green are one of my favorite color combinations.
Details look great distressed.
It’s been cloudy and rainy here for days.
I took photos of the table inside but when the sun popped out for 30 minutes yesterday me and the JTS hauled the table outside and I started taking photos.
The photos were taken in front of my bridal veil bush.
We have two of them and they are humongous.
The flowers are always so pretty. I wish it bloomed all summer too.
