ANOTHER AUCTION FIND

Remember this shelf/table from my last post??  




Click below for the AFTER as I promised in that post.




After two coats of my homemade turquoise chalk paint, the piece is sanded.


Then antiqued with Minwax Special Walnut.


Hardware is reattached.


There were no clips to hold the shelf up.......soooo, using my rose pruner.............I clipped off 4 pieces from a dowel pin, painted them turquoise, and WA LA.


I know, I know, I'm kinda stuck on turquoise, but I promise I'll do something different soon.



The other little side table is featured HERE
.

Thanks for visiting and please come back often.  8-)

  5. I also like the turquoise. I got a can of oops turquoise that I've wanted to use but wasn't sure what to use to antique it. It just so happens I have the same min-wax in my cupboard in the shop. Thanks!
