Blue Heaven

I love blue and robins' egg blue is a real beauty in my opinion.  I found just the perfect shade at the Walmart last week and just had to find something to paint.  I had plans for a while to paint a small cupboard in blue with some birds so I was ready to go.  I painted the cupboard blue, glazed it with a dark brown, and put a coat of poly coat on the top.  I found the cool bird stencils at Hobby Lobby that I used on the sides.

I loved the way the blue turned out on the cupboard so back to the stash to find a table.  I had this sturdy little number I picked up at GoodWill for 5.00 and thought what do I have to loose give it a go something different.  I painted the word "Amore" all over the top to look like subway art.  I guess it came out alright like the color a lot.
