Two things I love are aqua and quatrefoil. I’ve been in the mood for painting, well anything, in aqua lately {it must be spring}… just looking at  this color makes me happy!

Here’s a little tray I picked up a few weeks ago. I used my homemade quatrefoil stencil and mixed some white paint with my teal mermaid’s treasure to get a lighter shade. I think I used three coats. Then I mixed a slightly darker shade and stenciled the top of the tray.

I lightly distressed the edges and then coated the whole thing with poly acrylic satin.

I think it looks great with my aqua mason jars!!

My next aqua project is much larger and involves a mirror and some chalkboard paint… can’t wait to share it with you!!
