I loved the look of Aurora on the Country Chic Paint color page but I loved it even more when I chose to use it on the base of a vintage solid wood table I had stripped and sanded. I stained the top walnut and the base needed a color that was “vintage” like but fun, and Aurora was perfect. The color is a deep teal which goes well with the refinished wood tones. I am dying to try it on a larger piece in the future.

A quick recap of the table re-love starts with the table top sanded down to the natural wood to eliminate the engraved scribbles and words and other unsightly marks. It then got a good scrubbing with soap and water and a scrub brush, rinsed and left to dry well.

I stained the top in walnut stain.

Aurora goes on the base, one coat was all it took to cover, the edges got a light distressing. Another in keeping with age step was using Danish oil to seal the stain and while I was at it, I gave a quick wipe over the body color which added a nice finish to the Aurora.

Lee Ann {Creative Moments}

Hello, my name is Lee Ann and I am the creator at Creative Moments. I have always had a love for vintage pieces and an interest in recycling/repurposing. Creative Moments became the outlet for both. Reloving a piece of furniture no longer in style, in disrepair or tossed aside into a “new, one of a kind” piece makes my heart sing. I love seeing these pieces becoming a part of a home, adding character and charm and providing years of enjoyment.

    1. Hi Linda,

      That’s right, this was a limited edition color so we no longer carry it. We don’t have plans to bring it back, but we do have other teal colors that are similar! You might like Jitterbug for example.
