Weathered TurquoiseTable



Sometimes instant gratification is a good thing. Kinda like this little 5 dollar table find. Oh, how I love MY flea market!!! I mixed up a little turquoise paint, painted and distressed the legs and dry brushed the top. Gotta love the simplicty of dry brushing yet the results are super cool.


Remembered the before! I really hate when I forget to take one.

Well check me out getting all creative with those starfish.

Dry brushing is a technique where you just barely get paint on your brush and lightly stroke it on the surface. So easy and gives a time worn weathered look yet it only took you a few minutes :) Who knew?

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!!!

Love what you have done, and I don't mean to sound stupid, but what the heck, I will any way. I don't know what dry brushing is, and I have seen "dry brushing" used several times in blog land lately. Would you be so kind as to tell me what it is exactly? TIA
