Im still loving me some blue at this moment, and now with so many different paints and tints in my stock, I have a great time mixing up my own colours! I was aiming for a grayish navy with this one and Im happy with how it turned out, especially with the hardware painted brilliant gold.
I did my usual sanding, vacuuming, washing, wiping, drying. Followed by a tinted coat of Zinsser and then two coats of the navy in Dulux Diamond Pearl. I also did a topcoat of acrylic poly on the top for added durability. Lots of work, but I don't like to skip steps as it usually results in a bad result that won't hold up.
