The last of The Blue Ocean Breeze Spray Paint

I've been spray painting again.  I had enough of my favorite blue spray paint (Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze) left over from my last project to paint this thrift store metal vase.  Previously it was a dark green with black speckles.  I just love the shape. 

It has been sitting empty on my table for days.  Today while walking out the door to go to my in-laws for Easter Dinner I thought hey, that nest I found would fit in the vase. Oh and then every nest needs a bird.  So while my husband waited in the truck for me I quickly put it all together, admired my work then ran out the door.  Just a little last minute Easter vignette. 

Did I mention it is my favorite color. Guess it might be time to give it a rest. 

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter!

P.S.  If you have been following my blog you may have noticed in the background that I painted the paneling white ;)  To white I need to find a less bright white.  This one hurts you teeth it's so white.  Any suggestions?

yes, I did notice. what colour of white is it? white sounds easy but as a lover of white I know how hard it can be to find the right white.

Cute vase, even cuter color. And still so in love with that mirror!
We love benjamin moore's linen white. Its white without being stark. Its much creamier and is very forgiving (unlike BM's super white, which always looks dirty).

Your projects look great. It is my favourite colour too!

great use of a beautiful color! As for the white, we had the same issue when we redid a room. We went to Lowes and found an off-white called "Seltzer". It is a creamy white color that's a bit warmer than stark white. You may want to experiment with it on a small project to see if you like it. :-)
