Color of the Week - Sea Anemone

Welcome to this week's Color of the Week post.  This is a new color for me and so I've only got two pieces to share.

I bought this sample of Martha Stewart's Sea Anemone back in November when I was trying to choose paint color for my bedroom makeover.  It looked terrible as a swatch on my wall, and I just didn't care to try it on anything I wanted to sell.  Week after week, I kept reaching around it as I chose another color.  Poor Sea Anemone.  I finally decided to give it a try when I felt it was time to start listing more Beach Cottage items.  I'm glad I did!  It looks so much better than it did on my wall!  Out of my beachy colors, this one is my favorite.  It's a very pale blue.  Almost like a white with just a hint of blue. 

Here are the two pieces I've done with it so far.

Here's a neat little tidbit about the pedestal bowl.

The BEFORE bowl, was thrifted and given to me by my sweet friend and fellow SC blogger, Leslie, and it was purchased by another SC blogger, Carrie, with a Speckled Dog @ Etsy giftcard she won last fall.  Cool, huh?
