I have a super wise mother in law.
We were at an antique shop a few months back and found some beautiful blue and white china platters and when I commented how beautiful they were, she said "Well blue and white is always right."
And that has stuck with me and I had an idea of doing a piece that replicated those china platters I saw.
Here is my version.
When I started brushing the paint on I had to say "Ooooo" and "ahhhh" because the color was ridiculously beautiful.
It's Costal Blue from the General Finishes Milk Paint line.
I've used their paint before and always loved it, but I've never had the experience with the "natural chipping" that the paint is known for until this pieces.
It was so ridiculously cool to brush the paint on and have it resist and naturally chip away.
The piece had some beautiful engravings that I wanted to highlight so I used the General Finishes Antique White and dry brushed it on.
Because the top was in really great shape, just a little dry, I used some tung oil to revitalize it and also sealed it with wax.
Every time I walk by I have to run my hand over it.
Anyway...there's your creepy moment of the day. :)
