I cut in the paint with a brush around the edges and rolled the large surface. It took four coats. Yikes! I thought I would never get it finished. I let it dry over night and then it was so bright I decided to tone it down with glaze. I used Valspar Mocha glaze sold at Lowe's. I have been using this bottle of glaze over and over. This stuff just keeps on going. I brushed it on and waited about five minutes and wiped it off with a slightly damp cloth pulling down from top to bottom making it nice and streaky. I was so glad the glaze made it the color I was trying to achieve.
I usually use Benjamin Moore paints, but I was just walking through Home Depot at the time for something else and I grabbed the green card when I saw it and took it to the counter and ordered a quart. I sure was glad that it was the right green. The Behr paint seemed really thin though and that is why it took so many coats.
Yesterday I went to the dentist for my six month cleaning and check up and on the
way home my car decided to go by the flea market. Silly car we don't need anything else from
the flea market, but the car took me there anyway. So I went in and looked around since I was
already there and I did find a few things. Guess my car has ESP.
I found all this old silverware in the same booth I got my other silverware at. This time I got the forks.
These were $1 each
Two meat forks $2. each
I got this lovely decanter for $5.00. That was more like a yard sale price than flea market.
It has some etching inside, but that's o.k.
I love the shape of the bottle and the lid.
I am going to link to Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.
Please check out this party and the other treasures that were found.
I leave you with a sneak peek of another project.
