How to find projects done with Rustoleum Chalked Serenity Blue?
I'm looking for photos where this color was used, with clear wax, distressed, and followed with dark wax. I am new to this DIY thing, I bought the paint to do my kitchen cabinets, but I am concerned it has too much blue. I was shooting for a turquoise finish. I think a photo of a finished product with serenity blue could help. I've looked all over the internet, but most don't specify what color was used.

I suggest your go to your paint store or paint department in a big box store that has an electronic screen where you can select the room, paint color and area you want to paint and see how that looks.
You can also paint scrap lumber with your chosen color and test various finishing techniques. Place your samples in your kitchen and view them at different times of day for various light conditions. Some colors look completely different with different angles of sunlight and light fixtures.
Rachel I have a link but as CJ suggested going to a paint store will give you a true color since the computer may change the color
Hi Rachel, this is not a great pic, but the blue is Serenity Blue, no wax though. I would suggest practicing on scrap wood first.
Thank you all, very helpful, I did use the inside of a cabinet door (so it would be the same wood) - as suggested, viewed in different lighting, and I am glad I did, it is too blue for what I'm trying to accomplish. I am going to run by the hardware store today and select a new color if the mixing machine is repaired. Also the photo that is posted was also helpful.... thanks for taking time out of your day to help me get started!
This is my goal... just to get an idea...
Goodness, I think it ate my response. I just wanted to thank everyone for taking a few minutes out of your day to help me. I took all of the advice, and I’m thankful I did, as it is too blue for my goal. Great tips, thanks again!
What color did you go with?
