Surfing U.S.A. I couldn’t help but sing when I finally finished this dresser that I’ve been tinkering with on and off for several weeks. I painted it three times trying to get it just right but each time I wasn’t feeling it. Am I the only one who does this?
I was stumped until I started painting the sample trim pieces for the chalk and clay paint I’m carrying from American Paint Company. I felt like a kid in a candy store!
I like to mix up colors, so I painted the base in American Paint Company’s Beach Glass, a fabulous teal.
The top was given one nice coat of American Paint Company’s Blue Jeans then washed with a thin layer of Surfboard. Wow! What a cool combination that is!!
The icing on the cake was when my friend Laurie stopped by and asked if I wanted to borrow her awesome stencil for anything. Um ~ YEAH!
I mixed up some leftover sample pots to paint a base color of orange then topped it off with another layer of yellow.
Scuffed it up a bit then sealed it with American Paint Company’s Clear Antiquing Wax and off she went to the shop to await her new owner.
