Ol' Blue

Yesterday day was amazingly beautiful.  Bright sunny skies and 65 degree weather.  Just the day I have been waiting for to complete my newest acquisition.

I don't use blue very often when I paint furniture.  It's not usually a color I gravitate towards.

However, this blue is standing out as one of my favorite colors I've used on a piece.

I apologize in advanced that I won't be able to tell you the color, I bought it at Lowes in the oops paint section and it has no label on it.


Serious wear on the veneer.  The top was sanded down and re stained.



My favorite part is this sweet little detailed trim on the drawers.
