Lookin Good!

I've been painting EVERYTHING in my house lately.  For example,  I bought these two stools from T.J. Maxx a few weeks ago.  They were red when I bought them, but I knew I was going to paint them a blue green.  They came out okay, but looked dull and flat. 

So I mixed some acrylic paint, a bit of burnt umber with raw sienna and lots of titian buff, then thinned it with some water, and played around with it.

This mixture gave the stools a glazed, aged look.  Or as my six year old son said,"They look old now."
