I love turquoise. I especially love turquoise and gold. Turquoise reminds me of summer, of sparkling water, of vacations, of Elizabeth Taylor (must be the Cleopatra connection). I can't think of anyone or anything that doesn't look good in turquoise. I can't be alone in my love of turquoise...just ask Tiffany's.
Check out my finds from this weekend's yard-saling trip, all spruced up, waiting anxiously to move to their new home! And read on to see how Annie Sloan paint can breathe new life into just about anything.
I painted the tables with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Provence" and sealed both with clear wax.
(You can buy the paint here in Rhode Island at Searose Cottage in Bristol.)
I buffed the lamp with a rag and a tiny bit of soft gold wax. Did I mention I LOVE turquoise and gold together? The lamp is too large for these tables but it will make a nice compliment somewhere else in the room.
I couldn't help myself - I had try out "Emperor's Silk" on the gilded frame. Once we decide where it needs to be hung it will likely get a small painting tucked inside.
