I finally finished painting my pine sideboard that I purchased over a year ago. Why did it take so long to paint, you wonder? I couldn't figure out what color I wanted to paint it! It wasn't until I ripped out my carpet and painted my concrete floors that things started to come together. I'm glad I waited to paint the piece because the the rug I bought helped me decide on paint colors.
Here's a before photo that I took of it in the store before purchasing it.
I actually started to paint it a lighter blue color, but when I laid down the rug, I decided to go darker. I just painted on top of the lighter blue, using Benjamin Moore Hale Navy. Then a lot of distressing and dry brushing to finish it.
Pretty color, but I decided to go darker.
Layering paints and distressing
The sideboard is sealed in a flat finish.
Lots of storage inside
The indigo blue color is not traditional, but I love it! The stained pine was pretty, but I already have a pine table and the wood tones would have clashed. Plus, I wanted to go bold and have color.
Just need some art work on the wall!
I'm really enjoying my new dining room. It's fresh and colorful. I call it Scandi boho!
Till next time,
