I have had a lot of fun experimenting with color lately.
My little red table has been one of my most “pinned” items on Pinterest.
I found this cute little table at a yard sale, it was cracked, worn and rough.
I purchased a Valspar paint “sample” and had it tinted to the “Vegas” green color.
Why Vegas, Valspar?
Ready for another pop?
If you have been hanging with me on Facebook, I told you guys the other day that I am so into navy and green lately.
Do you blame me?
By the way…..remember when I asked you all if my shade was too big for my lamp the other day. Consensus was to get a larger/higher “harp”. I had no clue that is what the “shade holder” was called but anyways…did you know that Walmart sells an “adjustable” lamp harp?
They do and it was less than $5.00. Perfect!
Made such a neat difference to this lamp shade? Love it’s skinny little neck showing!
Raise your hands if you like navy and green together….
Oh. Wait. That’s just me.
Raise your hands if you keep wearing combinations of these two colors until it almost appears as if you are constantly wearing the same outfit…..
Oh. Wait. That’s just me.
Raise your hands if you bought the beautiful navy and white porcelain piece in the above picture at Goodwill today and you were so excited that you came home to pose it with your green table but first you had to remove the HUMONGOUS sticker it had on it and you soaked the sticker in goof off to get it off and put the navy and white porcelain piece on your table after getting the sticker off and forgot to clean the bottom of the porcelain piece off and when you picked it up you saw this…..
Oh. Wait. That’s just me too, isn’t it?
Yeppers, it is.
So, do you like the green?
I am going to post a tutorial this week. Took half of a $2.50 sample, a little gold leaf and stain and paste.
I learned something new with the gold leaf by messing up. I will share it with you in the tutorial.
You are the only reason I mess up.
I am loving the gold leaf.
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
What would you list this for or buy this for?
Should I sell it or keep it?
I thought about making it the “nightstand” for my new guest bedroom that I am getting ready to make in the old book room.
Wouldn’t that be pretty next to crisp white linens?
Let me know!
I can’t wait to hear from you!
