Natalie gave in to its demands by creating her own custom jewel tone blue color.

Before diving in, she sanded down some areas to smooth out the finish. She then gave it a couple of coats of shellac to prevent the inevitable bleed through.

Then she mixed together 2 parts Jitterbug with 1 part Peacoat to create the perfect, eye-catching blue!

Natalie {A Ray of Sunlight}

Hello! My name is Natalie, and I am the owner and creative mind behind A Ray of Sunlight. I have always loved anything to do with crafts, so it only seemed right when I started my career in painting and refinishing furniture. Growing up my parents taught me many things including how to re-purpose and reuse what we already had. I wanted a career that would enable me stay home with my baby girl, and furniture does just that. I hope to inspire those who are looking for fresh decor, but don’t want to pay a pretty penny for the cheaply made furniture at stores. Thank you for following along on my adventures of up-cycling and bringing light back to old outdated pieces.
