Oatmeal and Powdered Snow

Welcome Paint Lovers…

Today I’ve got two great paint projects from Talia @ Relove.

Power of Paint

She found this buffet on Craigslist. She sanded and used a liquid deglosser to prep. She painted on one coat of Kilz primer, two coats of Behr Oatmeal Porridge, and one coat of Ralph Lauren Glaze in Tobacco.

Power of Paint

This hutch/dresser was sanded down then primed with one coat of Kilz.  Then she painted on two coats of Behr Powdered Snow. She distressed the edges and detail and then painted on one coat of Ralph Lauren Glaze in Tea-Stained. Then she added new knobs and lined the drawers with modge podge and scrapbook paper.

Great pieces Talia!
