Rust-Oleum Textured Metallic & a Turquoise Dresser

After the Haven Conference, I came home with so many new products to try and great ideas. I literally could not wait to get to work and get all of that out of my brain- it keeps a sister up at night. So excited, that I finished 4 pieces in two days. Haha! Most of the time I don't do 4 pieces in a week. 
I average about 3 pieces per week, actually.

I found this piece while I was on my way to a thrift store in Atlanta, GA. after the Haven Conference. I was following my friends who'd flown in from Texas- they spotted it too. We whipped around and I was the lucky dog who drove my trusty Chevy from Alabama =) 
He (my truck) always has my back when I find awesome furniture... wherever. Texas, Atlanta, Florida, tha dump...

Yall understand =)

I forgot to take a before picture =(
(sorry about my crooked picture)



One of those products that I came home really excited about was RustOleum's textured metallic spray. I love RustOleum sprays- I love glitter- put the two together and I'm a very happy girl. So, 1st thing after getting home from Atlanta, I had a date with Home Depot's paint department.



I love it! Not only because it has glitter in it, but it went on smooth- with just 2 coats- and it's durable. I've never had chipping issues on hardware sprayed with RustOleum.




I would love to keep this piece for myself but it will actually be going back to Georgia to it's new home, haha!

Thanks for reading!!

    1. Hey Tracie! I did find it at a yard sale for a steal but I prefer to keep the exact price I paid private since I do resale my pieces. Thanks so much!

  4. Audra, what a beautiful job you did, and the turquoise I think was the perfect choice of color for this piece, it looks so elegant. Congratulations.
