My closet has always loved navy.
Now, my house loves navy too.
You'll remember this little side table I re-did a couple months back, that despite it's neutral appeal, it just never sat right with me.
It was just...off. For this space. Not the shape - the color.
As I'm gearing up to finally tackle a new big boy room for Brecken, I thought I'd try my hand at the other DIY Chalk Paint recipe in a deep navy blue on this side table that I already despised.
If I didn't like it after the fact, oh well.
But guess what?
I LOVE IT!
It adds a bit of sophistication and regal-ness (is that a word?) to the space.
The paint was super easy to work with.
Behr's Midnight Dream (1 cup)
1 tbl. of unsanded grout
and it was MORE than enough for this project.
In fact, for some projects like this, I learned that I definitely should at least HALF the recipe so I don't have to throw so much away.
It did require some sanding at the end, but who doesn't love to distress a little?
Gold hardware is for sure the only way to go - as seen in Cassie's gorg new entryway table last week on her blog.
What do you think?
