Here is the before, I liked it when my kitchen was yellow and it was time for a change. I chose a pale blue and white to go with to try and tie in my new laundry room design.
I did several coats of polycrylic ( it does not yellow) because it leaves a really nice protective coat.
I lived with it for about a week and then decided it needed a little more. So I got out my pencil and started to sketch a branch of a tree.
I wanted it to look like a shadow of a tree on the table. I wanted it to be soft and simple. I took the pale blue and mixed in just a few drops of black paint. I just used craft paint to darken the pale blue just a little.
I then painted in my branches and the leaves that I had drawn in with a pencil. It seemed like I was painting the same color on until it dried and then the branches and the leaves started to stand out.
I like how it turned out, so soft and pretty. I have recessed lights and they make it very hard to take a picture without getting some reflection.
