Vanity Stool Redo and Gray Paint Info

Monday, 3 October 2011

This little stool isn't really worthy of it's own blog post, but I can't leave you with out pictures. I picked this up for $2 at an estate sale. I didn't get a before picture, but imagine really aged and dingy brass...not in a good way.

I'd picked up Rustoleum Sweet Pea in hopes of doing something pink...and this was my chance. Here she is today!

Now, on to what so many people have asked about. The gray painted table I posted here got a fantastic response and lots of questions about the color. I have the numbers on the can, but apparently it's just for Ben Moore paint. I took it to the hardware store to have them give me the closest color in the Ben Moore color deck. I got a few that were close, but not close enough. I remember the paint originated with a can of oops Ralph Lauren paint...so you know what I did for you guys? I drove to the only place that carries RL paint in the area, and...I didn't find the exact color. So here's what we're gonna do. I found a Hirschfields color that is nearly exact. The one I used is about 25% lighter. It's called Smokescreen (#0556).

I'm going to list the numbers/info for the paint here below. If it makes no sense to you or the guy at your hardware, HD or Lowes, I will send you a color swatch! Just email me and send me a self addressed and stamped envelope, and I'll send you a swatch of this mystery paint...that's how much I love the color and my followers/friends!

I bought a quart of latex enamel in Ace Hardware brand.
Deep base
B: 2 ounces, 1 shot, 1 half shot
F: 10 shots, 1 half shot
T: 10 shots, 1 half shot

This is a foreign language to me, but that's what the label says!
Any questions, just ask!
