Happy June Everyone!

My kids finished up school last week, just in time for 5 days in a row of rain . . .

But we are enjoying the slower pace of the summer days in spite of the constant wetness outside.

I missed sharing a Fusion Color of the Month with you all last month, so I am excited to jump back into things for June.

Today I want to show you Bayberry.



Bayberry is a muted, olive-toned green.  It’s the darkest of all of the greens in the Fusion Mineral Paint line, and makes for a great accent color in a space.  Bayberry has fantastic coverage and can blend with both warm and cool colors.

To showcase Bayberry, I have this side table makeover to share.



This table was a flea-market find.  The faux bamboo and cane shelf totally drew me in–great details!

To prep the table I wiped it down with Simple Green, and then gave the top and legs a light sanding with 220 grit sandpaper.  The table top had some flaking on its finish, so I wanted to smooth that out as much as possible before painting.

Two coats of Bayberry did the trick, and I finished it off with some light distressing just along the edges and details.



What do you think?



Fusion did a great job covering up the poor, existing finish and I think the green gave the table kind of a funky vibe.



I really like the faux bamboo detail! I’m always excited to find a piece with that pattern.



So can you see using Bayberry in your space somewhere?

I hope you enjoyed this month’s color and makeover! I’ve got another makeover to post soon, this time using MMS Milk Paint.  So check back again soon!

And as always, if you want to try out this great color but don’t have a local Fusion Mineral Paint merchant, you can shop for Bayberry and all Fusion products in my online shop.



Have a great week!
