Aqua Ombre Chest of Drawers!

Aqua Ombre Chest of Drawers!
I started with an old chest of drawers...that has been
 painted and repainted over and over again.
Most recently, it was blue.
 So, I switched it up...
Here's the paint I used.
I totally love Rust-Oleum ultra cover spray paint.
(Aqua and Lagoon are my go to colors)
I like it way more than krylon or other brands I've tried.
I love it and they don't pay me or give me free product to say that.
So...
When I saw this Valspar paint, I was ultra-hesistant...but
 it was the perfect in between shade of aqua!
So I had to try it.
It sprayed on beautifully and looks great!
However
I am not ready to endorse Valspar...because I used black valspar spray paint 
to repaint my dining room chairs.  I did everything according to package
 directions and the chairs looked gorgeous!
I let them cure in the garage and then brought them inside for 4 days
 before anyone even sat on them.
And when we did sit on them...the paint chipped off just 
from our hands touching them...
and our pants stuck to them.
So, not a believer.  Yet.
I'm going back to Rust-Oleum for now.

For the dresser front, it looks great and has held up wonderfully.  So good there.

The black casing was my daughters choice, and I love it!

It's very reminiscent of a paint chip card!
I love aqua!

The dresser looks great! This is actually very helpful for me trying to pick which color of aqua to paint my mirror. I have been between the two Rustolem, but that Valspar seems perfect. What is the name of the Valspar paint you used? Thank you!
