Fusion Blues Paint Giveaway

Blue is my favorite color, all shades of it, so when asked to join other bloggers in showing off the Fusion Mineral Paint Blue colors (they have 8 to choose from), I jumped right in.

Look at all these purdy shades of blue at these blogs!

I chose Laurentien, my very favorite aqua color. (You can also see Laurentien here on my patio table I recently repainted.)

I started with an OLD card table I had picked up at a junk shop.  It is sturdy and I adored the raised, decorative edge so I had to buy it.

There is just something about card tables that I love.  In my family when the card table came out it usually meant something good--a bridge party for the adults, a kid's table at holiday meals, a puzzle to put together or a game to play.

I painted this table in about 15 minutes, it was dry within 30 minutes and then I lightly distressed the embossed edge.

That was all!  Fusion Mineral Paint does not need a finish--it has one built in.  It goes on so smoothly and dries quickly.

I wanted to leave the metal edges and corners.  Rather than taping them off, I simply kept a wet rag nearby to wipe away any oops.

    1. Yes Linda, it is such a wonderful color. It always reminds of the beach and Lake McDonald in Glacier Park.

  7. Great table save and great color! I think my favorite part of this is giving new life to something that wasn't good anymore. You made another treasure from trash :)

  8. I love the color of the card table. I will have to paint one in my stash! It turned out so nice. I am with you about card tables, they were for games, kids' table, etc.
