A splash of color

When we redid our kitchen I really wanted tone on tone, mainly because I wanted to be able to change my colors in and out easily without having to rip my kitchen part again.  I am convinced the kitchen is one of the worst renovations, you never realize how much you are in it until they take your countertops and sink!!

I recently ordered these spools, and I love the turquoise ones.  
I also love blue mason jars (which are really kind of turquoise)
These 2 are the color inspiration for my kitchen.  I took them to the paint store and found a color that matched almost perfect.......and......

I painted my mismatched barstools to match!  I love how the turquoise looks with my granite!

I tried a new glazing technique with these barstools, which I really liked.  I will have to make a tutorial to share!  It made glazing with a stain much easier!

 I would love 2 more barstools so the search continues for more mismatched barstools!  Sometimes I feel as through that is always the story of my life.  But we will call it treasure hunting as that sounds much better!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Weekend!!!!
