I'm on a turquoise color kick! I just love this color from the
Real Milk Paint co. They call it cobalt but it's this stunning shade of turquoise.
This 100 yr old buffet was in great condition.
I didn't want to cover up the wood but just wanted to enhance it a bit.
I forgot to snap a pic before I started. The wood is quarter sawn oak and hardly needed any
attention. I sanded the doors and drawers and went over them with some stain that
matched the body. Painted with the milk paint. Oh I forgot, I actually did a first coat
with the color "peacock" and then did my second coat in cobalt. I didn't want the color
to be too bright and I like the greenish-blue underneath.
I have to post a pic of my new garage makeover-workbench area! Everything was done with stuff
we already had laying around the garage. The wood flooring on the wall has been up in the rafters
for 5 years! Wasn't enough to really do anything with so why not bling up the workspace area?!
And this is what started it all....the tankless water heater! I still have to do something with that corner.
I reused the cabinet on the left to store all my paints and stuff. And I made a chalkboard on the front!
Of course, I got left with the clean-up and organization part. I swear, it took me 8-10 hours to clean
up, reorganize and put things together. What a job! But I love it now!
Ok.....back to my buffet!
Everything got a coat of natural tung oil when I was through. That's it!
This was the only side that got this "chippiness".
