The perfect shade of green
I have a client who brought me an antique table (her great-grandmother’s) to shabby up for her. She brought me a picture frame from her kitchen to use as inspiration for the shade of green that she wanted.I brought the frame to Home Depot to try to find a paint match. As I approached the Martha Stewart display, the “Bay Leaf” paint chip jumped out at me. The perfect match and a beautiful shade of green! The beauty is, it is one of Martha’s sample pots for $4.99. So no waiting to get paint mixed…score!
The table was in perfect condition and I wanted the pretty brown to peek through so I didn’t prime it at all. I used a brush to apply the paint because I didn’t want “perfect coverage” like you get with a roller. I used what I refer to as the “slap chop” technique. I lightly sanded and glazed it all over. I love the results!I hope my client does too!
