Want to highlight your blue eyes, think of yellows (or oranges).
I used to have hints of a light turquoise / sea foam green in my bedding and curtains, but swapped out turquoise this winter for different shades of pink.
I painted my dark bedroom a deep, moody teal color and loved it.
Matte will absorb all of the light, where as an eggshell or semi-gloss will reflect light.

Maybe not, like, charcoal – but a dark green or maybe a storm-cloud-like grayish blue (that would feel calm) or even a brown (though in my opinion good brown shades are hard to find).
I figured moving within the same building would be a breeze.
One option is to think about a wall color that complements your skin tones or coloring.
Now it is my girly, super calming retreat at the end of a long day.
It has moments where it looks ligh t grey, light lilac and sometimes a touch of pink.
My dining room doesn’t have windows, being in the middle of our victorian house and we have painted it a very moody dark blue, it is stunning.

Carte Blanche: Questions Questions by decoratescotland.blogspot.com
Then with the top coat thin it about 10% with water, more if you want.
If you still see brush strokes you don’t like then you can sand after waxing and then do a final wax.
It sounds impossible but it works and often helps to even out patchy looking paint.
I have a draw leaf oak table which has a really horrible orange varnish finish on top.
If you want a smooth solid finish then here’s a good ways to approach it – a)apply the first coat full strength, then lightly sand the surface with something like 180 grit sandpaper and take away the brush marks (this will be a bit dusty so be prepared).
My friend paints, sands and then waxes but she also loves the distressed look.
You mentioned on this post it would be quicker to brush on when doing furniture.
I can’t see the point of using an acrylic paint unless you want solid, acrylic look.
I have quite a few pieces to do and they have to be done rather quickly.
Keep an old toothbrush to hand and a jar of water to just do a thorough clean at the end of each piece of furniture.
I need to completely sand the entire piece down to wood first?
If you suspect wax it may be a coloured wax but be aware that if a stain bleeds it may bleed through the first coat so be prepared with a shellac to stain block after first coat and then the second coat should cover perfectly after that.
I would give them 3 coats of wax or 2 coats of a good quality polyacrylic that has a resistance to oils.
I used the fine sandpaper after the wax dried to try an buff it to a shine, but both tables are still dull and a little gummy.
The chair needed a second coat & on drying the paint has now cracked ?
If the sanding lightly and re-waxing doesn’t work then try this wee technique – take a plate or palette of some sort and put a blob of wax on it and make a wee well in the middle (like cooking) add in a little of your paint and then mix and apply.
Also both centre leaves have been replaced with ply rather than oak.
If the chalk has been scraped then there is no room for paint.
Then apply the second coat thinned about 10% – maybe more if you find it dragging a bit.
It doesn’t seem to have the same coverage all over, and is blotchy in color.
I know this sounds like a daft question but did you stir the paint?
I did notice that there were some spots with too much paint with brush strokes too.
I appled two coats, they are very even, and the paint is for walls too, right?
I wanted to use the duck egg color on a chandelier, but thought that spraying it would be easier since there are so many tiny parts.
If so, does it cover the same as when brushing it on?
I think it might also depend on how big a chandelier it was.
I want to paint and distress the cabinets in some shade of white.
I would appreciate any advice including what kind of sprayer would be best and approximately how much water can be used to thin it before it’s too much.
The surface needs to clean and when you wash it down, rub the surface firmly with a white cloth and detergent and check to see if there is a stain that will bleed, rub it firmly and then check the cloth for stain bleed.
I can achieve a smooth waxed finish without the blotchiness ?
The kitchen table has been painted and waxed now for 6 months, wax is wearing off at the ends of the table where our arms come in constant contact.
You wait a few hours (at least 4) and then buff with something lint free.

What Color To Paint Your Bedroom: Pictures Options Tips and Ideas by hgtv.com
There are no hard-and-fast rules, but it’s good to keep some guidelines in mind.
Do you prefer a room that is light and airy, or dark and cozy?
Lighter shades and pastels can also help a small room feel larger and more airy, and touches of a bright shade will turn your bedroom into a cheery space.
For a room in which adults will sleep, neutral shades are popular, but don’t be afraid of color.
Consider an accent wall, such as the wall behind the bed’s headboard, in a bright or dark color if you feel reluctant about adding too much color.
Bright reds and oranges may not be the best colors for adults seeking a space to unwind in the evenings, but bright colors can work well in children’s rooms.
The same goes for purple; a favorite of teen and tween girls, purple stimulates brain activity and is a good choice if your child studies in her room.
When choosing paint colors for your bedroom, the number of choices can seem overwhelming.
Stripes, stencil patterns, sponge painting and textures can add a touch of style to any bedroom.
Smaller patterns lend themselves to a more traditional look, while larger patterns and geometric shapes, bold stripes and sweeps are more compatible with a contemporary look.
White can also create a soothing atmosphere; pair it with soft shades and neutrals or, for a contemporary looks that pops, bright or black accents.
Whether you’re choosing paint for your bedroom or a family member’s room, consider the occupant’s age.
Rich reds and warm browns can create a sultry and romantic mood, while gold tones can add a touch of luxury.
You can also choose a muted shade of orange or yellow for a cheery look that doesn’t overwhelm the room.
A kid’s bedroom is a great place to stray from traditional colors, so let your child use his or her creativity to create their perfect space.
