I've been in vacation mode for about 3 weeks! But I did get this finished before we left. As usual, I don't have any where to stage this in my house. I am re-doing the living room where this piece will eventually end up. I've decided on the colors of charcoal, smoke, grays, smokey blues, teals, whites and pops of yellow. This campaign piece was painted in BM "Naples Blue". Kind of a peacocky color. I love it. I think it will make a great accent piece.
Anyway, here is the before and after. To read all about it, scroll down to the post beneath this one.
The actual color is a little more teal/peacock blue in person.
I applied two coats of the satin BM paint. No chalk paint this time. If you haven't tried BM Aura, I
highly recommend it. It is by far the best paint I have ever used. I have tried hundreds (I'm not lying!) of gallons of Behr paint. My whole house is painted with it. And while it seems fine, after trying the Aura, I have to say that it goes on beautifully! Yes it's pricey, but so is ASCP. You get what you pay for.
The hardware was polished with brasso. Do not use Tarn-x on brass!
Partying at all my faves listed at the bottom!
