I just planted a few pansies in my flower pots and am anxious for spring to arrive! I’m sharing these newly edited, previous spring themed posts – enjoy!
The temps are definitely warming up here in Maryland which means spring is here! Today’s paint colors are like those of a freshly dyed Easter egg!
This buffet is – hold your hats – Behr latex paint. It is their paint and primer in one and costs roughly $15.00 for a quart. In the past I only used latex paint as that is all there was! It’s a lot easier now that the primer is right in it. I have a Benjamin Moore color wheel that I take to my local HomeDepot and they match the color for me in their Behr Paint line. The Spring Buffet was done in Summer Showers with a glaze.
The Chippy Daisy Dresser (LINK HERE)
Here we have another true spring color – yellow! In particular, Somerset Gold from General Finishes. This is a pretty yellow that isn’t too bright and isn’t too mustard and, in this piece, the hand painted daisies add some whimsy.
Peacock Blue Eastlake Dresser (LINK HERE)
There is nothing more Easter egg than the Peacock dresser. This was painted in General Finishes Corinth Blue with their Burnt Umber glaze. Such a stunning color!
Of course, pink must be included in our spring series! Here is Annie Sloan Antoinette. A lovely soft pink that is pale and has just the right amount of pink in it to create a soft look. I used it on the dresser below for a nursery, as well as the interior of Laurel’s desk.
1930’s Provence Gem (LINK HERE)
We can’t do spring colors without including Annie Sloan Provence. What a fantastic shade of blue that is perfect on its own and as a wash can change up a whole look. My favorite of her colors.
Antibes Green Dresser (LINK HERE)
Ah! We didn’t get to green! OK, one more. Annie Sloan Antibes Green. Such a bright pop of color and a so fun to work with. The Emerald Dresser.
Louis Blue Vintage Dresser (LINK HERE)
I’m adding this one in for this year! What a perfect spring color! Louis Blue with clear and dark wax paired with gold highlights!
One more Spring post to share!
Yesterday, my girls and I broke out the spring decor and put up our Easter decorations. We tackled our living room mantel first. I added these extra large blue mason jars that we found the other day at the World Market (love that store!). We added a few bright yellow daffodils, our Easter decor and wreath and our mantel is set for spring!
Spring has sprung!
Love this post Suzanne! It’s nice to see some of the pieces you painted before I started reading your blog. Oh and BTW your Easter mantel looks lovely!
