Identity Crisis

This awesome chest was having an identity crisis!

First it wanted to be Young Kansas Wheat & then it wanted to be Seattle Mist.  After brushing on both of those colors, it finally decided it wanted to be it's very own color.  I mixed Alaskan Tundra Green with Memphis Blue, some Vintage White & a drop of Destin Green.  It was perfect!  The chest was so happy to have it's own unique color & I was happy to be finished! 

The color is actually darker than I can get it to photograph.  My booth was too full so I listed it on CL.  It sold within 2 days.  The sweetest lady came & purchased it.  She also purchased another piece that I was in the process of working on.  Bonus!  She was really sweet & is interested in learning how to paint her own furniture, we may have converted another one!

  1. Wow, that piece was really dreary! I have a question? How do you paint the areas where the veneer is put on the diagonal to form a chevron? Do you go with the grain? Do you tape off each area individually?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. What an awesome pieces, even it it's very worn and rugged state you could see its potential and beauty. Love the color, and speculator job in her transformation. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!
