Vintage Glider

I'm so pleased with how this turned out, I just have to share :)

I have had this old glider sitting on the porch at Abigail's all summer. I found it at an estate sale a while ago, and have been using it for summer days on the porch.

Yesterday, I decided to paint it. I didn't have many good colors in my paint stash, so I made my own color.  I had a pretty ugly light moss green.  You know, the color that was hot about 10 years ago, but now, not so much.  I also found a really painfully bright turquoise.  I mixed the two....using the lighter green as a base, and added the turquoise a bit at a time.

  At first, it looked a little brown....I kept adding and it turned out so pretty.

The pictures don't capture the color as well as I had hoped, it is gorgeous in person.
Check out a sneek peek of a new project I'm working on here.
