A new Color!

I have exciting news! 

I have found a new color that I really like!

It is another blue, maybe more accurately called a teal. 

It is a Sherwin Williams color called Cloudburst.

If Halycon Green isn't blue enough for you then Cloudburst is a good substitute.

I painted two tables in this color.

Here is the first one.
This is the before.



And the after.



Isn't it a fun color?!

Then I did this table.


Now with Cloudburst.





Got another white knob from Hobby Lobby.




Let's see the difference to Halycon Green.





The finials are Halycon green.

I always thought that HG looked so blue until I compaired it with Cloudburst.




Still wouldn't necessarily call it green.

But that is just my opinion.

Great color, the cloudburst would be perfect for my kitchen island project. Thanks for sharing.

It is a very pretty color! I have that same knob, just waiting for the perfect piece!

Oh sooo pretty! I have the same small plant stand and it's cracked in the same place. Can't decide if I want to paint it or not. After seeing yours, I'm leaning more towards painting it!

I've been reading your blog for an hour! I love your sense of humor (much like mine), all of your projects, and the adventures of those little boys! I have a teenage girl, though, not two sweet little boys...apples/oranges, I know, but still a tough parenting scenario at times!

Needless to say, I am your newest follower. Come by and say Hey when you get a chance!

Love Cloudburst! Thanks so much for introducing me to a new color! I have been in a bit of a rut with Krylon's colors--will definitely need to check out Sherwin Williams! Also love the knob--I am a bit obsessed with Hobby Lobby's knob and pull isle! 50% off this week! :)

Shirley said...

Love both colors. Maybe I should be brave and do a color instead of always painting things white or black!!!

They look so great, I think that color brings out the lines in furniture.

Loved catching up on your blog and reading about how you started your furniture business and home projects. I LOVE Cloudburst and how it turned out on your little end table. Such a beautiful blue! I think I am going to start a segment on paint colors for furniture and would love to feature your color.

Alainarae said...

Where did you purchase that paint. I just went to my local sherwin Williams store and they acted like I was crazy, they carried very fee spraypaint colors... I'm sad because I'm ready to paint a little table this color and can't find it anywhere!

Rosa @ www.flutterflutter.ca said...

Wow, I just discovered your blog and I'm hooked!! Love all the color choices, and what a lot of furniture fabulousness!! I'll be following you!
