Robins Egg Blue

Found a can of paint last week at Lowes on the sale table and loved the color.  It looks like Robin eggs.

So I tried a couple of painting projects.

I had these clocks which previously had roosters painted on them.  I used some graphics from http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/ .  I still would like to add some flourishes around the edges but haven't found anything yet.



I had this metal sign in my kitchen but it was red.



Then I was inspired at The Inspired Nest with her Chippy Toolbox and had to copy that idea since I had one of those toolboxes in my garage.  Also used graphics from The Graphics Fairy for the side.



On a side note look what Mr. WMMH gave me for Valentine's Day!
