I mixed up the color myself. I just played with a bunch of leftovers until I was satisfied. I LOVE this color! I loved it so much that I actually went and had a gallon made of it.
I didn't do anything to the hardware but wash it. I thought it looked pretty just the way it was:)
On a side note, I finally signed up for a show! It's not until September, but I am super excited. The only other show that I have done, was just a craft show. This one will mostly be my furniture and decor!
