I mixed up my own color of dark turquoise in a DIY chalk paint concoction. I have to admit, this saves me a ton of time because I don't have to sand and usually only need 2 coats. I love chalk paint if I'm going for a distressed finish!! Plus, the recipe I use here makes SO much, that I really could cut the recipe in half and have plenty left over.
This sweet cabinet has a plank top that I sanded down to the wood and used Minwax water based stain in Walnut. I then waxed the top to seal it.
Here's an exhibit of my recent craft fail..the JOY sign. My 7 year old can do better bubble letters than I can and my mistletoe looks like a green reindeer with red testicles. Sorry if that's TMI....but if you look closely, it's true. ;)
But the cabinet turned out cute! This will also be at the Carver Junk Company this weekend!
