DIY Rustic Paint Finish

Not a whole lot to look at, but a solid wood desk, with handles I would almost ALWAYS recommend replacing!  BUT I wanted to try something new… I was inspired by this…

Can we just say,.. ahmazing… I just love the mix of colors,.. you can actually find that and much more inspiration on my Pinterest Boards.  I love to find amazing photos to reference and pull my paint inspirations from… So I decided to take a deep blue-slightly more,.. well a lot more on the navy side, (I just couldn’t help it!) and I worked in some areas of oxidation and added in some rusty goodness…

You can see how I layered in the colors,.. then the rusty effects and even some drippy old oxidation…

Those old wooden handles I normally would replace were perfect to take on the rust and oxidation..
