turquoise bar stools

So I decided that I need some turquoise in my kitchen because it's my favorite color. Unfortunately because I despise the Home Depot paint department in Virginia Beach and it stresses me out to ask them questions, I impulsively picked the lighter shade instead of one darker.  However, it is just a wooden bar stool & just a $9 quart of paint so if I decide I want it lighter I'll change it down the road. I am still going to give it a few more coats and then white wash it.

there she is in all her glory!
Lucy has been victimized by our kitchen project more than once. Philip dropped a board on her & she seems to have recovered just fine, but she walked under the stool as it was drying the other day & became a black and blue dachshund...Sorry Lu.

  2. Hi! I found your blog through the Hampton Roads Etsy team. I just wanted to tell you that I love your home! I have been looking for an older place with some architectural interest in Virginia Beach. Glad to know there are some out there!

    But I think your pup is too cute! I have a miniature dachshund (and a miniature dachshund chihuahua mix and they would definitely get into trouble like this!
