Do you love mixing paint colors to find beautiful, custom creations? Abbey from Painted Home Goods created this fun teal color using a mix of Bliss, Midnight Sky, and just a touch of Rustic Charm!

I may or may not have made us a couple minutes late to church because I couldn’t leave this little cabinet by the dumpster. It wasn’t anything special but it certainly didn’t deserve to be trashed.

The previous owner had attempted a white paint job but it was poorly done and only left the piece looking worse. I sanded the gloppy edges, tightened up the legs, and removed the replacement handles that just didn’t match the mid-century style. I played around with color for a bit before settling on a custom blend of Country Chic Paint’s Midnight Sky and Bliss with just a pinch of Rustic Charm. The result was a unique teal blue. I painted the sides, legs, and remaining unbroken door a creamy white and the interior sides Rustic Charm.

Mid-century pieces always look best true to the era in bold colors with lots of design so I found some very cool retro patterned wallpaper for the sides and interior back. With gold tipped feet and new knobs and sealed with natural wax, this little cabinet was complete.

Abbey {Painted Home Goods}

As a mom to twin boys, I am always busy. Twice the fun, twice the work! My Twin Tornadoes and salvaging neglected furniture are my passions. If a twin mom in a small apartment can fix up and paint furniture, so can you! In today’s throw-away culture and tendency towards cheaply made, mass produced home goods, I seek to provide something different, something unique. Bringing new life to discarded finds is my way of contributing to the responsible thrifting counterculture that has become a growing trend. When shopping with PaintedHomeGoods you can feel good about what you buy. Enjoy!
