My new favorite color for accent decorating is this blue. Folks call it lots of names... Robins Egg, Tiffany, Country, Aqua, Teal, Vintage... and it's true that there are many shades of this particular trendy color.
And I like it.
It's amazing what a can of spray paint can do to totally change the look of a piece. The three you see above didn't start out so cute. They were all thrifty finds that had potential. The lantern had broken stained glass.
The apples were an outdated gold, and the bowl was a stratched bronze.
The red bird was a Dollar Tree find that was cute enough, but not very colorful.
Check it out...
I also realized that I've used it a lot on many other projects I've shared here on my blog. I had found a gallon of "Oops paint" for $2.50 at Walmart and it's obviously been put to very good use...
I hope you're inspired and not overwhelmed at all this blue-whatever-it's-called color. I don't have it all in one place, I just use it to accent areas of my home.
However, my husband doesn't know it yet, but I am about to repaint my dining room blue.
That's going to be for a future post. I'll keep you posted!
