Do you know the paint color and technique used to get that turquoise on the sideboard? Trying to do the same.

Hi Libb that is a great kitchen and I love turquoise too. You can google search or go to youtube and look for distressed furniture. I found some good advice and tutorials there. I have done some work like this and demonstrated for a tv show but do not have a link for it. You can make it easier or harder depending on the finished look you desire. I can only see one color but if it has many layers of paint then it is a matter of painting, sanding, waxing and doing it all over again to get the finished result. Keep in mind that the color will darken when you end with the oil or stain.

When doing many coats of color then you can sand in between coats then add wax to the areas you do not want to have painted over. This is what gives you the many layered look reminiscent of an old piece of furniture.

You can do it!
