ORC: Week 5 “Paint it Blue”
Holy Cow, how is it week 5 of the One Room Challenge?! We are rolling along and my room is coming together. This week was a “light” work week. My family took a mini vacation to the lake, so the only thing that I really finished was giving this console a colorful makeover.
I purchased this piece a few weeks ago from an estate sale. I loved it at first sight. The big brass pulls and the chinoiserie flair had my name written all over it.
For a split second, I thought I wanted it painted green. (So I started painting it green). However, I do have lots of green in this room already. So... I had my hubby wheel it back into the room, I needed to see it in the space. I decided on blue. Amy Howard had sent me this gorgeous blue color that I used on my parents bathroom vanity (see blog post here). It’s called “Good Day Sunshine”.
It’s a beautiful soft blue and it’s beginning to be my new favorite color. If you haven’t painted with Amy Howard paint you should. The paint sticks to surfaces so well, so painting this piece was a breeze. I removed all the hardware, and gave it 2 good coats, then finished it with a light wax.
Thats it, for this week. Next week I have painting baseboards and trim on the agenda. I’m heading over to the ORC blog right now to check out what all the other participants accomplished this week!
I highly suggest you do the same! Happy Saturday friends!
