I chose these colors because I found an interesting cabinet and I felt it needed a special color…
This piece had such fun detail and fabulous wood that it all needed to be seen… So I started with equal parts of Palmetto and Fluff (which became a gorgeous pale green) and I applied that as the base coat.
All my pieces I paint usually get the minimum of 3 colors, so the next color I wanted was something bolder, a color to do some highlighting with, so I chose Peacock with equal parts of Cobalt, a perfect darker Teal.
I added this color to all the nooks and crannies and did some color blending and even some drips.
I also added some Holy Guacamole in certain areas with some Best Dang Wax in brown. The top of this piece was in rough shape so I did quite a bit of sanding and then used some Voodoo Gel stain in Tobacco Road with a splash of Sand bar to give it a lighter wood effect. Voodoo Gel stain is water based so I used it on all of the exposed wood trim. I sealed this piece with Best Dang Wax in clear.
The hard part was trying to stage and photograph to get the full true colors of this piece.
