Bahama Blue Painted Furniture

I'm Jumping In!

And I'm going "Bahama Underwater Blue"

Now that I live at the lake
I'm changing some of my home color.
I had a lot of reds and golds before.
This is the sideboard that is up for a change:

Here's a sneak peak at what's to come:

After sanding and priming
I base painted in
Bahamas Underwater Blue; Semi-Gloss; from Walmart.

Let the glazing begin.

Folkart's Raw Sienna and Burnt Umber combine to make a nice golden brown .

Pour some clear glaze
onto your paint tray

Any clear glaze would work,
but I like the consistency of this.

Load your brush with just the glaze first

Then dip the side of the brush in the mixed color:

And Brush it over the blue
working in 1' - 2' areas.
Better switch to a bigger brush!

I use a wet wipe to blend out areas that might be too heavy with paint:

And there you have it!

Quite a new look .
Removed the doors.
Painted the interior white.
Baskets on shelves.
New Hardware.

Color changes are fun and inexpensive
and change the mood of a room.
Take a risk.  "It's just paint"  is my motto.
