a small chest of drawers in homestead blue - fusion mineral paint

There are some colours that I naturally gravitate towards, and have to make myself not paint every single piece of furniture in. One of them is blue - there are so many shades and tones of beautiful blues! I have had a little bit of a crush on one blue in particular - Homestead Blue by Fusion Mineral Paint.  It is so deep and rich and gorgeous! 

I generally hoard jars of paint in colours I love because I don't want to run out, but seriously this jar is never-ending! This is the third project I have painted in Homestead Blue - two coats on each project, and there is STILL paint left in my jar! I am impressed at how far this paint goes! 

I have had this piece for a while in my shop, and I recently got it prepped and ready for paint.  


I used a Staalmeester brush, also sold by Fusion retailers, to paint this piece.  I gave it two light coats of paint.


To add some extra depth and dimension to this piece, and to highlight the natural wood grain, I used Miss Mustard Seed's Antique Wax.  I love using dark wax over dark paint colours to give them added richness.  


I put the original hardware back on this piece - I absolutely love how the brass pairs with Homestead Blue! I could paint everything this colour!
