A Touch of Blue

I recently bought a sample bottle of Louis Blue ASCP and decided I would use some to make a small change to a table I have in the powder room.  This is a very quick project but I think it makes for a sweet change.  

This table has been around a long time.  I remember finding it at KMart, priced wrong, and I think I got it for around $15.00 because of the pricing error.  It was originally trimmed with green, and had yellow flowers in the corners and front of drawer.  I originally changed it by painting it with one coat of ASCP Olde White.  This is how it looked after the first change.

I had sanded the edges to let some of the green show through. 

To change it, I only painted the edges of the table, the knob, and the little groove along the bottom of the drawer.  Here is how it looks with the blue trim.

While the blue paint was barely wet, I took a damp cloth and lightly wiped it to get allow some of the green to come through, and give it an aged/chippy look.


I like the softness the blue adds.  Here you can see another of my altered bottles.  This is a vinegar bottle that I decided was too pretty to throw away.  I added the rhinestone heart, tied lace around it, added the birdcage with a small piece of jute string, a butterfly sticker, and stick on tiles for the lid.  

(Sorry for dark photo, hard to photograph)

I am pleased with the look the touch of blue adds.
