Hand Painted Cobalt and White Furniture Makeover Inspired By Mexico Accented with an Otomi Print

May 16, 2016 | 4 comments

Who doesn’t LOVE a blue and white color palette?!?! 
It’s a classic combo but I had to add some edge to this makeover. 

This is #3 in my “Doors” Series, Part II. I’ve sold out of every piece so there may just have to be a Part III!!


I used Oxford, Steamer Trunk and Ol’ Navy from Heirloom Traditions Paint again for this makeover. The Oxidized Patina wax, once again, gave this finish just the right amount of oomph! 

Sky Soarer knobs and bowls from Anthropologie.

This is the door that inspired this colour palette and finish.  I really tried to recreate a worn and weathered look. I can’t really explain how much fun this was to paint. I turned in to a 6 year old pretty quickly! Pinterest is a wonderful source for beautiful images, don’t you think? I have a board titled, “Doors”, if you are interested in following along. 

I know, I really pushed the envelope here, but it was necessary here.  This maple buffet was just so drab. Otomi paper from Spoonflower. It’s also available in a multi colored print.

I have to tell you, this buffet gave me over 900 views on my Etsy shop, The Turquoise Iris in 24 hours!! That, my friends, is AMAZING!! You guys are awesome.

Thanks as usual and have a lovely week!

p.s. I have a mustard yellow door on my brain…
