Okay! So for those who follow me on Instagram (link to follow me is above), you know I had a major color crisis the other day while painting an armoire that sits in our living room. I wanted a pop of color... and I ended up with just that. Too much color in fact. So I had a little regrouping moment with myself and faced the facts... bold and 'my house' do not go together. Thank goodness I stopped myself before I painted the entire piece.
I was using a mineral fusion paint and I will go ahead and review it, even though the color choice was a disaster.
Brand: Mineral Fusion
Color: Renfrew Blue
Purchased at: Local supplier
Coverage: I guess I was expecting better coverage than I got for one coat (I obviously didn't make it to two coats). It was very streaky.
Dry time: This product dried so quickly, as I expected it to since it's similar to chalk paint. Quick dry time is both a blessing and a curse. For recoating purposes, it's fabulous. For ability to work with, horrible. You really have to work in small areas and quickly.
Type of brush used: 1.5" angled synthetic brush
As you can tell by the before photos, I removed all the faux knobs on the two lower doors. The new knobs are from Home Depot. I was going to hold out and pick up a new color of mineral fusion paint, but I could not look at that unsightly, half painted teal armoire any longer. As usual, I used Behr paint. This color is called suede gray and is just a few shades darker than my wall color, cathedral gray. I used satin finish and only had to apply two coats. I used almost an entire quart on this piece.
Opinions on wiping on and off a metallic charcoal glaze just for a little depth and pizzazz?
Until next time!
