In Love

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been sharing some of my favorite paint colors.  If you've missed those posts, you can find them here, here & here.

Last week, I stopped by Home Depot and browsed through the Martha colors, taking three color samples home with me.  I've fallen in love with the first one I used.  It's called Duck's Egg and it is GORGEOUS!  

Take a look at this beautiful pedestal bowl, transformed with a few coats of this beautiful color.

I predict there'll be lots of Duck's Egg pieces in my future.  Maybe even a furniture piece or two.

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting about this color. I was inspired by Driftwood Gray and Milk Pail that when I went to get my samples, I had Duck's Egg in my hand to get as well. Sadly, I didn't get Duck's Egg, I chickened out. I know, crazy right? Welp, you my dear have inspired me yet again to go and pick up a sample of Duck's Egg. Oh, and I now need to get another sample of Milk Pail. What an AWESOME color. Thank you, as if I didn't say that enough, for introducing me to these colors : )

  8. Hi again! I'm looking at FOTF link party and clicked your links twice in a row. :) I just bought a bowl like this at a garage sale for 50cents!!! I have plans to paint and distress it like you did, just not sure what color b/c I have no idea where I'm going to put it. I just knew it was a good find! Also your newest follower!

  16. I have seen these so many times and think hmmm not a think you can do with that but paint it white. Well, you showed me, the color you chose really livened it up, and the pretty distressed areas make it look much more chic and sophisticated, well done, xxx

  36. I love this. I featured it on my blog last night.

  37. I am in love with the colors and the thrift finds. I was wondering if the paint is "food safe"? I see how you have used the pedestal bowls for fruit and I have a few items that I would love to paint and use but not if I can't use food in them. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Hi! Thanks for checking on this before you went off painting everything. I tried to reply to you personally, by e-mail, but your e-mail address isn't available.

    Anyway, since this is wall paint, I would say that it is not food safe. This particular bowl has fake pears in it, which of course would be fine.

    I've not explored the subject of food safe paint so I'm not sure where you would get it or if you could get it mixed in custom colors. I definitely think it's something I will look into.

    Thanks again for checking on this!
