I got this crazy-colored paint from Hilary Obzansky and decided to paint our nasty bookshelf. After 3 coats of the green-colored stuff, it was glowing neon in our kitchen and for a second I didn't know what to do with it! Then I diluted some white paint and wiped it over the entire surface to soften the color a bit, and then sanded it like crazy, here there and everywhere for a very antique look. And. I. LOVE. IT. So much in fact, that I will be painting my framed mirror next!
