New Paint Color: Pacific

In case you didn’t know, I grew up in California. I spent many of my childhood days on the beach.

I spent many of my teenage days driving along the beach and walking next to it gabbing with friends.

The ocean makes me feel like home.

So when I was dreaming up a blue for our chalk paint line, I knew I wanted it to be deep and saturated like the ocean.

 So here it is. Aptly named Pacific.

I started with this cute end table. It had pretty wood but icky green paint on the top surfaces.

So I sanded down the edges a bit and then did two coats of Pacific.

I opted to sand with a sanding block for this one so that I had more control over how much paint came off. Sometimes with wet-distressing a lot of paint can come off really easily. And since I had not gotten  all  the green paint off I didn’t want to distress too heavily. I sealed with Trewax, put on the original hardware, and love how adorable it is!

What do you think of the new color, Pacific?

The end table is available at BrickCity Emporium for $75.
