Turquoise Chalk Paint & Gold Metallic Makeover {jewelry inspired}

Happy Thursday everyone!!

I am so excited to be sharing a gorgeous “new” turquoise Chalk Paint and gold metallic makeover with you all today.
Actually, there will be 8 fabulous makeovers!
Every month, a few of us get together and do a “themed” makeover of some sort.
Last month was “love & romance”. I painted an upholstered chair for that one….
…..and you can see it–> here)

This month’s theme is a METALLIC finish furniture makeover.
(You can see previous month’s themes here –> Themed Furniture Tour )

I really stepped out of the box with this one…..

…….and I am IN LOVE.

Really I am.

I love turquoise and gold together. I think it just compliments each other so well.
So when this month’s theme came up I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Well, after a tiny bit of thought, of course. ;)

If you follow me on Instagram, you got to see a little snippet of this table last week…”in the works”.

I’ve had the table for awhile. It’s actually been in my garage since last year.
I had originally planned to paint it a pale teal color, maybe two-tone, and inlay a map of coastal Virginia in the top there.

Sort of nautical-ish.
Since I live right on the coast, most of the things I do are coastal, shabby and/or nautical in nature.
But I decided to use this one for our metallic furniture theme this month. And I’m so glad I did.
It really was the perfect table for what I had in mind.

This was such a fun excursion from my usual! Look out y’all…because I may be on a roll now. ;)

The turquoise….and the gold….oh – my – goodness. Just gorgeous. (Okay, I painted it and feel sort of funny calling it gorgeous…but I think it is! When I look at it, it makes my heart sing. :))

But it was kinda yucky to begin with. Though, not bad for $7!

All you need is a little paint (and time and patience–the gold paint gave me a bit of trouble) to make a world of difference.

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® for the turquoise (mixed Aubusson Blue, Florence and Provence). Beautiful, easy, great coverage….perfect.
The gold metallic was Martha Stewart’s Metallic paint….not so much. Perfect for small (very small) things and what I originally bought it for–>antiquing and adding a bit of zing to metal hardware and such)
I’ll have a post up on the blog next week with more details about this entire makeover. (see it –>here)

So for now you get to enjoy the fun after photos. :)

I won’t be keeping this one. I have nowhere to put it…..and it doesn’t really match my current decor.

But I really want to FIND somewhere to make it fit in. ;) Maybe.

Because it makes me happy every time I look at it.
That’s how I know when I’ve gotten a piece right.
I think I got this one right. :) What do you think? Yes? Yes!

    1. Thank you Sonya :) I am loving the color…now I want to paint something else with it! It never ends, I tell ya! (paint obsession);)


    1. Aww thank you Sheila! :)
      Hope you have a great weekend! (and hoping it’s not really gonna rain the whole weekend like forecasted!)

  1. I love the turquoise and gold combination. Painted, this thrift shop find looks like a totally different piece of furniture. I don’t think it will last long if you try to sell it.

    1. Thank you Chris!! And from your mouth to Mother Nature’s ears!! Spring needs to come and stay! ;)


  2. Nancy, it’s OK… you can say it! It IS gorgeous!!! Your vision and creativity never cease to amaze me! My guess is you’ll try very hard to find a place to fit it in! I’d want to keep it, too! xo, K

    1. Thank you my sweet friend!! :) I am trying, believe me. I am thinking my bedroom…office…maybe??!

  3. Oh wow Nancy, what a stunning makeover! I love the color, the metallic details, the hardware…everything about it. I’m working on a headboard right now that has those same medallions – probably the same furniture company. I don’t blame you for wanting to keep it but should you decide to sell, I’m sure it’ll go quickly.

  4. It’s always a joy to see your creativity, Nancy. This piece is so beautiful. The gold and blue DO look like jewelry. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration. Pinned :)

    1. Hi Jamala!!
      Thank you!! It really is a gem…and I must find somewhere in my home to use it! ;)
      I will be sad to let it go.


  5. Yes, you got this one right! Love it. The turquoise and gold together look amazing. Great job Nancy :)

  6. WOW! You and Christy both!! I just love those colors together. I think you need to find a spot for it. I think you can do it if you try. ;)


    1. Aww thanks Andi! :) Me too! And I’m really not a gold girl (well, I was back in the day!). I think I need to find a spot too…I told my husband last night maybe our bedroom. And I got”the look”. lol Like, um no, find another place for it. Guess it’s a bit too girly for him! ;)
      Maybe I’ll use it in my office!


    1. Thanks Kelly!! :) I love me some turquoise….but the gold just made it! Its been years but I think I’m starting to love gold again. I need to find a way to incorporate more into my decor!


    1. Thank you Krista! I’m loving gold lately! Now to find a way to incorporate it with all of my ORB and brushed and shiny silver stuff! What’s one more metal? It sounds like I have it all anyway after just writing that! ;)


    1. Thanks Christy!! I don’t have any metallic either!! But I may!! ;) If I can find a place for this. lol
