When painting furniture, I have used several different colors of blue. However, I always come back to this one – it is blue with just enough gray (sorry for the not so great quality pictures – a goal of mine is to learn to take better ones):
I use a primer tinted brown so that when I distress, there isn’t any white showing. On the table above, I actually painted it white as the finish color (the white I use is Honeymilk by Valspar mixed at Sherwin Williams). However, I did not like this table white so I repainted it my favorite blue – which is why on it, you do see white where it is distressed.
Paint: Sherwin Williams ProClassic Interior Acrylic Latex – this color was matched, but below is the formula from the can.
Glaze: Behr Premium Plus Faux Glaze mixed with Anita’s All Purpose Acrylic Craft Paint in # 11131 Expresso Bean (I have tried several different browns to mix with the Glaze and this one is my favorite)
Top Coat: Minwax Water-Based Polycrylic in Clear Satin
