A few weekends ago, Sherwin Williams had a big sale.
And being the person who doesn't turn down a big sale... I had to go.
Because the 15 other cans of paint and 20 cans of spray paint were not tickling my fancy at the moment.
I skipped into my local Sherwin Williams and then I thought..."Uhh, what color am I going to get?"
Other people will have that figured out before they walk in a store.
But not me.
I blame it on the kids.
But they weren't there so.... I will blame my stupidity on the heat.
Then it hit me, I remembered my mom's buffet she painted it with Halycon Green.
Y'all, it is my new love.
This is a GREAT color!
But I want to know something. How did the Nester know that even though it is called Green and the swatch looks green, it is really blue?!
How do you learn such trickery?
When I brought the color home I knew what I was going to use it on.
I got this coffee table off of Freecycle.
Sometimes I am just in awe with what people give away for free.
I painted the bottom Halycon Green and the top white.
This will be another Craigslist flip.
Fingers crossed that it will sell.
I did just sold the black metal spray painted chandeliers today!! Who Hooo!
Then I got a wild hair and thought I would try something crazy.
Silver spray paint on this little table.
I saw some silver tables all over blog land and I have been drooling over them.
So I thought I would give it a try.
I gave it a big fat FAIL!!!
Sigh, but atleast it is just paint. And it can be painted over!
I took that Halycon Green and painted it.
Ah, much better!
But there is another problem.
Now I need to learn how to slipcover that chair.
One project always leads to another...doesn't it.
I will be posting to these parties.
