Adding Turquoise to Our Kitchen.

Adding Turquoise to Our Kitchen.

Decorating & Remodel, Furniture
When we redid our kitchen I really wanted tone on tone, mainly because I wanted to be able to change my colors in and out easily without having to rip my kitchen part again.  I am convinced the kitchen is one of the worst renovations, you never realize how much you are in it until they take your countertops and sink!!
I recently ordered these spools, and I love the turquoise ones.
I also love blue mason jars (which are really kind of turquoise)
These 2 are the color inspiration for my kitchen.  I took them to the paint store and found a color that matched almost perfect…….and……
I painted my mismatched barstools to match!  I love how the turquoise looks with my granite!
I tried a new glazing technique with these barstools, which I really liked.  I will have to make a tutorial to share!  It made glazing with a stain much easier!


 I would love 2 more barstools so the search continues for more mismatched barstools!  Sometimes I feel as through that is always the story of my life.  But we will call it treasure hunting as that sounds much better!!


I hope everyone has a wonderful Weekend!!!!

    I love your stools! You did a great job and I can't wait to hear your new technique. I love turquoise accents with a white kitchen.
