Git 'er done...

Painting coming along and a little look.
The color is Behr 'Tide Pools' in their eggshell finish.
A nice subtle Egg Blue. I know both pics show a different shade,
it's most like the top one. It looks great with the redone headboard.
Sheet music from Annette. :-)
Yards of lace from mom's stash.  And a silverplate sugar and creamer.
Did you know women are 'gatherer's' and men are hunter's?

Wonderful headboard and lace and paper and silver,,,,just yummie!

  23. I had my kitchen, dining room, and living room all painted robin egg blue a few years back; loved it. I didn't really want to change it but one does need to change for a time. I'll likely go back to it sometime as I still adore that colour. It's always been one of my favourites. I still have my robin egg blue sofa in the living room! Your colour looks lovely.

    Blessings,
    Sandi
