31 Days of ASCP, Day 18….Stars and Stripes

What can you do with a little bit of Red {Emperor’s Silk} White {Old White} and Blue {Greek Blue}?

You can stripe some barn wood and add some stars!
What can you do with a boring dresser?
You can stripe it!

We took some Duck Egg Blue and added Old White to get a lighter hue of the Duck Egg!

31 Days of ASCP, Day 12… Emperor’s Silk

We will both admit that when we first popped open a can of Emperor’s Silk we were not fans.  We bought it to try to make orange {as we desperately wait for the arrival of Barcelona Orange!} and played around by mixing it with Arles.  The result was a funky “flesh” color.  We gave up and cast our can aside for a bit.  But then, we discovered that if you dark waxed Emperor’s Silk without clear waxing first you get an amazing deep red!  
We gave this table base more of an asian flare with the ES and the Dark Wax
The table is ready to be reunited with it’s top!
This little table caught my eye as I was on my way to my son’s baseball game.  I pulled over and paid $5 to a precious old lady in a short pink bathrobe!
Two coats of Emperor’s Silk and one coat of Dark Wax and she was a brand new table!  If I wanted it even darker I could have added a second coat of dark wax.
Red chairs are FUN!  I have a whole new appreciation for the color red now!  
If you have not used Emperor’s Silk yet… are you going to now?
Play with it and HAVE FUN!!
