on a ROBIN'S EGG roll

Okay, I know.  You're probably tired of my Robin's Egg Blue projects.  But, I'm lovin this color and since I've got a gallon of paint.........might as well use it, right?

The little side table and plant stand, I painted in the same way that I did this bed. 

The little table had problems on the bottom shelf, but I think it just adds character, right?  You're gonna lay your magazine there, just enjoy the character that these old pieces have.  No worry.  I could have taken this to my wood man and had him do an entire new shelf, but then the price of the table would have to be much more.  This was easier and cheaper. 

Now, the old wicker chair, I did a little differently.  Instead of trying to paint the wicker completely, I just dry brushed the paint on........leaving some of the original white showing through.  It actually looked much prettier in person.  I didn't want the chair to look NEW and this way we keep some of the old character.  There's that word, character, again.  Well, I truly do think the shabby, aged look is much prettier.  Don't you?

Oh, and I'm working on a dresser right now.  Guess what color it's gonna be??  Sorry, but yes, it's Robin's Egg Blue.  After it is finished, I promise I'll shift gears and find another color to use.
Thanks for stopping by.  8-)

  1. I love your projects. Today Ace hardware was giving away a free quart of paint. I needed some wood stain anyway so I decided to buy it at Ace and pick out a quart of paint. What color you ask? Robin egg blue of course. See how you inspire others. I agree this is a wonderful color. It combines well with so many other colors. I love your blog.
    Happy St. Patty's Day.
