Tiffany Blue beachy cupboard

oh my goodness! 2 posts in one day?! it must be holidays!!
we have all stayed in our PJ's for the majority of the day. love days like that.

the rest of the fam decided to watch a DVD. being someone who can't sit still for longer than 5 minutes, i had to do something. sewing was first on my list, but my machine is in being serviced and doesn't get dropped off till tomoro.
i wasn't going to paint anything today because of the wet weather, but i couldn't help myself!

and the best way to do that is??
get the husband to shift a sheet under the chosen cupboard that is currently inside the house.
then put the pedastal fan on high in between coats! works a treat!!
i went to Pinterest for some inspiration first. i knew i wanted to use some aqua, but wasn't sure how. i made up some half strength aqua, this is what i came up with. i think it's almost a perfect match for Tiffany & Co blue!!
i only applied one coat of the aqua, because i wanted a "washed" beachy look.
i used a very fine sandpaper over the whole cupboard.
to "lighten" the aqua of this jar, i filled it with white doilies.

all it needs now is a nice big glass knob.
cupboard before....
more rain forecast for tomorrow. sigh.
