I am so in love with my blue door that I have been looking around my house for more things to paint blue:) I have this fabulous cabinet with iron legs that my sister in law built!
It was begging to be blue:)
I used the same blue as my door adding aqua as my stencil color.
I distressed the whole cabinet with black.
|I painted one coat of the base blue|
|The stenciling took hours...it is the drying time|
of one section before you can over lap the stencil for the next section.
|I started out doing 2 light coats, realized how long that would take|
and then just did one fairly generous coat of paint.
|You can see the difference between the stenciling |
with, and without, the black distressing.
|I chose a portion of the stencil to center on the drawers.|
|I found these great knobs at Hobby Lobby.|
|I chose to leave the shelves unpainted to break up the blue.|
.....what else can I paint blue?:)
P.S. The stencil is called "Swirly Vines" from a company called Crafters Workshop.
