When I purchased this solid armoire cabinet it did not take long to decide on a navy paint color.

Few of my Favorite Fusion Blues



Another personal project was completed using 3 of my favorite Fusion Mineral Paints . I chose little tea pot, refrew blue and azure to complete my cubby shelf.

The colors work so pretty together!


Check out the jewelry box done in azure I did for myself too


and done ;)
