Benjamin Moore Hale Navy HC-154 is one of my favorite navy paint colors out there. This week I had a little time to play, so I took my can of Hale Navy around the house to see what I could paint! Remember my office I am working on?:
I like the California Paint Appleton painted walls, I just felt they were a bit boring. Hale Navy to the rescue!:
I love it so much more now!
What else could I find to paint? Well, this mirror in the guest room has been bothering me a bit:
I was not in love with the blue I used to paint this mirror over about a year ago. Looks to me like a fun and easy paint project!
Doesn’t the green Frog Tape look so pretty with the blue? (Thanks to Carol over at The Design Pages, I found the perfect paint tape- FrogTape. It works so well masking, that I would not use anything else now.)
I think it is so pretty now!
And one more project I could not resist, my bulletin board:
I masked the edges well with Frog Tape:
Now I have an original bulletin board:
I still have so many projects for my office (flooring, bookshelves), but I already feel happier when I walk in!
Have you had time for any fun little paint projects lately? Love to hear about them!
P.S. If you want a shinier finish on the accessories you paint, you can always rub a little wax, such as Annie Sloan wax, on the surface and then buff to a bright finish.
Have a great weekend everyone!
