Antique Radio Table in Peacock Blue

I picked up this little ex-radio cabinet a few months ago.  I fell in love with the turned legs and the amazing details!  I knew I wanted to do something different with it, but I couldn't decide exactly what, so I sat on it for a while.  This week I had my "ah-ha" moment with it and couldn't wait to get it done (right in the middle of doing 3 other projects!).  I'm so glad I did and I couldn't be happier with it! 


Before



After

It's gooorgeeeouus! :)
 It's actually a little more green (a real teal) than this, but I could not get a pic where the color showed up true. 



I painted it Peacock by Behr, distressed, and then glazed with Martha Stewart Metallic Glaze in Black Coffee.  I love that stuff!  It goes on and wipes off better than any other glaze I've worked with and it has this great subtle sheen to it.  




These seriously make me swoon (you don't get faint over furniture??)  !!  LOVE them!!! 


















I had a hard time letting this one go!

  2. Gorgeous! I'm such a fan of peacock blue, and the rich color really suits the lines of this radio table. I haven't tried the MS glazes, but I think I'm going to have to, now. :)
