The Perfect Shade of Blue

A few years ago we painted our bedroom the most perfect shade of pale blue. It's such a gorgeous shade that I've started using the leftover paint to redo some of my finds for my booth.

One of the first things that got painted in this perfect blue were a pair of shutters I thought would make a great photo holder.

Get ready for it................. :)

So, what do you think? Pretty gorgeous right? Yeah, I think so too!
The color is Caribbean Mist by Behr from Home Depot.


And I happen to think this mason jar is the perfect shade of aqua. 

 





 I have a growing obsession with wood handled screwdrivers! ♥

  1. So pretty, I am such a blue girl. It is a pretty color, but you don't mention what color it is? Is that to torture us and know to see the perfect blue we have to keep coming back to see it. I also live your vignette. Very pretty! My fingers are crossed you'll share with Sunday's Best tonight - too darn pretty not too!

  10. That's a very nice shade of blue, Melissa. Love the shutters. I like blue with a little bit of grey in it, but I usually mix colors to get what I want.

  11. All your photo's are just so special. Each one standing alone in it's own right. The Blue is indeed lovely, restful, and invites you to stay around just a little longer. That is definitely what you want when customers come to look at your finds :) Thank you for sharing at The "Sunday Stop"!

  17. Came over from Primp. I have a color Soft Bluette that is similar to this and love it. I can't believe you had the patience to paint those shutters. I have a stack of them to do - Have been putting it off for six months! Love the photo vignettes!

  18. I love these shutters. Can I tell you? There's a big flea market near our house every weekend and most weekends we go.. and EVERY time I'm there I see a few pairs of old shutters in one booth or another, and I always look at them longingly and think to myself "there are so many things I could do with those!".. but I haven't taken the leap yet. Soon. Very soon. :) Thanks for the added inspiration :)
