One paint job down

I spent so much time painting last week that my muscles felt like they might be about to explode. I managed to get a few things done (although if you look into the office to the right you can see I have made no progress there!) that have been bugging me.
This is our entry table before, a nondescript khaki color.
And after, a beautiful blue green. The paint is Martha Stewart duck's egg from Home Depot. I kind of love it next to the yellow. (photos are clickable to enlarge)

One paint job down, one million to go.

Now I need to go ponder the Easter decorations. I do NOT have my holiday mojo at this house. At all. Here's hoping I find it since I just spent 2 hours hunting down the Easter totes in the very messy basement!

  1. Love that duck egg color. It is beautiful against the yellow. Smashing really. The mirrors are lovely. I think Easter is sneaking up on me this year. I should get some things out, a few at least.

  2. That is a great little entry area...and the color of the table just makes it all pop! Color rocks in my world. Hope the holiday mojo is found at your house...Easter is getting close.

  3. It's smashing. The color combination looks perfect together. Your Easter tree is divine. I'm in full blown decorating mode. Compared to our Halloween chaos, it's not nearly as much, but I'm addicted nonetheless to my decorations. I hope you find your Mojo in this house. You've done such a great job so far with all the changes.

  6. Sarah, I can't even tell you how much I love that little entry there! I love the mirrors, the yellow walls, and I really LOVE the color you painted that great table! Your new house is evolving into a really pretty home.
    I'm betting that once you open those totes, the Easter magic will begin!
    Have a great weekend!

  7. I love that combination. Can that possibly be a leaf-shaped mirror?

  10. I already decorated too! Even though all I had were a couple of eggs, two chicks, and flowers from the yard. But I'm working on it. Love the color. I'm in the painting mood too.
