I TOLD you it was weird!  I wanted to experiment on this sturdy and primitive table.  I knew the colors I wanted to use and I knew the technique, just didn't know it was gonna end up looking like camouflage. 

I applied the paint super heavy and in blobs, drying each addition with a blow dryer to make it crackle somewhat.  The colors used were:  Annie Sloan's Greek Blue, Antibes Green, Florence, Louis Blue and a bit of Graphite. 

After it dried I had the great idea to apply a black wash stain to enhance the beautiful textures.  You will see that they showed up great.  However, after the final step, that part no longer exists, but I love how it ended up even better.

The final painting step was to repaint the legs in Pure White and then I diluted some of the Pure White with water and applied over all the camo colors.  Then using a wet washcloth, I wiped off till all the colors and textures were revealed.  AMAZING!!!  I was thrilled with how this turned out.  Satin finish completed this piece.  This is at my 2nd location at Country Hearts in Williamstown KY.

Enjoy the pics below and click on them to enlarge.  I think you're gonna like the close up detail showing the texture and even the black wash that ended up being covered with the white.
