I am sharing a quick way to treat yourself this Valentines Day!
I don't know if you noticed lately but indigo blue has been the trending color as of the summer of last year!! I have been itching to paint a buffet or dresser this color for the past year and half. I just need to gather the courage!! Pottery Barn mixes this color with yellows, oranges, beige (natural materials), grays, and reds. They compliment every color really!

I am in no way a designer of any kind and it takes me years to put something together I really like. Late last year we were updating our color scheme from rust orange walls to a calming gray and white. I did enjoy the orange and greens but I really wanted muted walls and then to add color and have the freedom to change the color as I pleased. Well, after we updated our walls I didn't know how to dress up my furniture, or what accessories to buy, or even what complimentary colors to use. And it stayed that way for 6 months.
It finally hit me the other day, I looked at my two upholstered chairs and gray occasional table in the middle and thought I need to add a punch of color! Indigo it was! ((I use my phone camera to capture these photographs which are not the best of quality)

I don't spray paint any furniture I sell, it is all hand painted. I use spray paint for my home because it is fast and an immediate gratification! It turned out beautifully and I didn't give it but a quick 3 minute sand down. I am thinking that spray paint is not so bad.

The spray paint color I used was Valspar Indigo Streamer in a Satin. It can be found at Lowes.

Thats right, I said it! Spray paint is not so bad! The finish would be even more beautiful had I not painted it previously. I am currently working on two projects and was a able to add this one because spray paint is quick & fast! And it covered the entire table with one can!
I hope I inspired you to add a pop of color in your home!
