Zero to WOW!

By Stacy in Shepherd, TX.

I fell in love when I laid eyes on the piece at a local garage sale.  It was scratched all over and a leg was broken and barely hanging on.  I couldn't wait to get it home.  My creative wheels were turning.  I had a custom mixed turquoise paint that I sprayed the entire Armoire with as the base color.  I blended multiple color paints I had from Royale blue, Terra cotta, copper to olive and mint green.  Just dry brushing randomly.   Let's the paint dry overnight the I began distressing heavily. With my sander... It was developing before my eyes a beautiful transformation.  I sat back and stared.  After distressing I applied GF antique stain which made the distressing just pop out.  I finished by sealing with GF topcoat in Satin.  Wow.....I was in love.  Totally transformed.
