Needed a Fresh Perspective!

I have a rule. If it hasn't sold in 4 months (the listing time frame for Etsy) I re-paint it. This piece was really not bad in the CoCo chalk paint but, I have that rule for a reason. If it hasn't sold, well it isn't appealing to the masses and maybe it will now. So here's the before.
 Now here's the after.
Although I might still do a black glaze over this, I think it's much more French Country Farmhouse than before. Anything else I have painted in this Tiffany Blue  www.missmustardseed.com  actually Kitchen Scale and Linen Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint has flew out the door. Only a couple of shades lighter is Eulalies Sky from MMS's line and THIS piece sold over the phone within 48 hours from 50 miles away until she could pick it up for fear that it would sell before she got in town!
Another piece that I painted (this was a custom mix because I was out of Eulalies Sky) wasn't at the shop long either!
As you can see it's a little more on the blue side but, still close to the turquoise or Tiffany blue like Eulalies Sky and Kitchen Scale. This is milk paint as well. I absolutely love working with milk paint. It a great way to get a painted piece to look more authentic. This works out well for me because recently I have decided to change gears a bit and go a little (maybe a LOT) more on the Industrial Chic side. That's another post for another day but, will be soon. There's SO much to tell you and I'm hoping to have it launched before March 1st but, if not before April 1st at the latest. Thanks for dropping in and please leave a comment or ask questions if you would like.
