glimpses of turquoise


Photobucket

Getting there. In honor of my "new" buffet I'm showing glimpses of turquoise today. As you can see, I've only managed to paint the bottom minus the drawers up to this point and I haven't distressed it either. But I did manage to get the hubs and son to carry it up from the basement last week to have a look - after promising that I would obsessively use the vacuum to clear the dust. Since we've had the gloomy, rainy weather I wasn't able to get a shot showing the depth of the turquoise color. Anyway - I'm loving what we've got so far. Updates to follow.

In the meantime and in honor of turquoise. Enjoy these.

  1. It'll be beautiful. A lovely neat job. How about not distressing it and letting time's distress take its course?

  6. Little D - I'm sorry, should have put a link to my original post. It's up now. But to answer your question, it was stained brown and really scratched. Click on the link to see.

  14. Thanks for the reinforcements! I was so hesitant about painting a piece of furniture turquoise. Never stepped out of my box to that extent. But I must say, it rocks.
