An Unintended Painting Project…The Tale of a ASCP Duck Egg Blue Table

I hope you all had wonderful Memorial Day weekend…

I took a bit of a blog break to travel to Florida to attend my nephew’s graduation.

It was great to be with all my siblings and my mom.

So…have you ever had an unintended painting project? I did…..yesterday.

But all’s well that ends well…


This is the end result…


The original table…I decided it needed a facelift… overdue update..


I wanted to incorporate more blue in the room….Have been doing that a little at a time…

But not this much blue!….


It just “bugged me”…just wasn’t right…


I truly love the color…Annie Sloan Duck Egg..

…..but not here.


I kept the gold scroll details on the table…

After I made the decision to take the table out of the room, I shopped the house.

There was a table in my hubby’s office next to his chair….it was my late mother-in-law’s.

I realized that the combination of the wood and cream tones of the marble top might work.




I truly feel this table works better than either of the two.

Never thought to place that table there, until my “unintended paint project”…


I scurried around last night gathering some “new” things to put on this table…


One of my very favorite pictures remain on this table along with my antique “Home Sweet Home” book.


I love that the beige and cream tones of the marble go so well with the new fabric of the chair..


I am happy with the change…so “all’s well that end’s well”….

Stay tuned to where that blue table has landed…

…..I need to move three things around to create a new home for the table….

……….you know, that “domino effect”…

So, have you had any “unintended paint projects”???…or was it just me?!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty Friday, #11…A vignette in a tray

Happy Friday everyone!

Today, I bring to you basket/tray vignette decor inspiration.

From the one of the Queens of Vignettes, Kim of Savvy Southern Style.

I have forever admired the way she can style a tray.

Here is my tray today…


Kim and I bought the same basket/tray at the Williams Sonoma Outlet in Georgia..a deal at $22.00.


On this post she showed it with magazines and books on her table in the sunroom.


In need some small hurricanes….remembered that I had these in a closet..

… I whipped out my ASCP Duck Egg and painted them.


I gathered some items, such as my Ralph Lauren blue and white plates…the painted hurricanes..

… swan that was a gift from a friend many years ago…


This is one of my favorite tray vignettes (and Kim’s) that Kim has posted here.


Kim uses real and faux flowers in many of her tray vignettes…


Such as this one in her gorgeous dining room.


I inverted one of the hurricanes and placed an apple under the glass…

…..topped it with a candle and moss…the other with rock and a candle.


The apples were added for that punch of color and texture…

…..the vintage tea towel is from a friend’s collection that I purchased from her.


Kim has also used fruit in her vignettes….wish I had that pretty cow!!!


I added a couple of my favorite pieces of silver..

…..the silver fork turned into a vase was a momento from the Hartstone Inn in Camden, Maine

It was a fantastic trip for our anniversary a couple years ago.

The silver pitcher I purchased from Barbara at The Treasured Home…she lives in California.

She brought it to me at the Southern Bloggers Conference…she forgot her iPhone, but not my pitcher!



This is the first time I had used Duck Egg Blue…I love it and need to buy a can of it!


My hubby said that he was glad I was painting something other than white! (He loves color)



So glad you stopped by today…..

…..I am off to Virginia!…


For the Lucketts Spring Market…and to meet up with fellow Hometalk Bloggers on Sunday at Lucketts! 🙂

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!
